Text::Filter::URI - Filter a string to meet URI requirements
Use either the exported function or the OO interface:
use Text::Filter::URI qw( filter_uri ); my $uri = filter_uri("A text which needs to be filtered "); # $uri = "a-text-which-needs-to-be-filtered" my $f = Text::Filter::URI->new(input => $input, output => $output); $f->filter;
See Text::Filter for details on
This method can be exported using use Text::Filter::URI qw( filter_uri );
It expects a string or an array of strings and returns the filtered strings accordingly.
These methods are used for the OO interface. This allows you to use the full power of Text::Filter.
new takes a hash for configuration. See "CONSTRUCTOR" in Text::Filter for more information on these settings.
There is one additional parameter:
Define an individual string for separating the words. Defaults to
Call this method after calling
new to actually filter the
Unicode characters get encoded to their ascii equivalents using the Text::Unidecode. This module maps characters like
� to the ascii character
a. This method contains several regular expressions which convert every not word character (
\W) and the underscore to a blank. Blanks at the beginning and the end are removed. All remaining blanks are replaced by the separator (defaults to
-). Then it creates a lowercased version of the string.
