NAME

Text::Hoborg - Spell-and-quality check for texts, including novels.

VERSION

This document describes Text::Hoborg version 0.0.5

SYNOPSIS

    use Text::Hoborg;
    

DESCRIPTION

This started as a spell and quality check for my novel, "Manuel the Magnificent Mechanical Man". Eventually, it can be used for checking any kind of markdown-formatted text, be it fiction or non-fiction. It includes, as documentation, the novel itself (check it out at Text::Hoborg::Manuel and also in the test directory the markdown source.

INTERFACE

new [$dir]

Creates an object with the novel text inside

text

Returns the text in original format

text_file

Returns the name of the text file

dir

Returns the dir the source file is in. Since this is managed from the object, it is useful for other functions.

appendices

Returns an array with the appendices included with the novel. It's used mainly for checking the spelling.

DEPENDENCIES

Text::Hoborg requires Text::Hunspell. And the Hoborg novel http://jj.github.io/hoborg should be somewhere. It also needs the en_US dictionnary for hunspell, which you can install with sudo apt-get install hunspell-en-us , but since I found no way of expressing this dependency within Makefile.PL, I have added it to the data dir, mainly
