This module can be used to write data in tabular form, formatted in MultiMarkdown syntax. The resulting format can be used for instance to display CSV data or to include data tables in Markdown files. Newlines and vertical bars in table cells are replaced by a space character and cell values can be truncated.
Filename, GLOB, scalar reference or IO::Handle to write to (default STDOUT).
Array, hash reference, or comma-separated list of fields/columns.
Column names. By default field names are used.
Column widths. By default column widths are calculated automatically to the width of the widest value. With given widths, the table is directly be written without buffering and large table cell values are truncated.
Include header lines. Enabled by default.
Include border before first column and after last column. Enabled by default. Note that single-column tables don't not look like tables if edges are disabled.
Write table unbuffered in condense format:
Note that single-column tables are don't look like tables on condense format.
Add a row as hash reference. Returns the table instance.
Returns whether rows are directly written or buffered until done is called.
Finish and write the table unless it has already been written in streaming mode.
See Catmandu::Exporter::Table for an application of this module that can be used to easily convert data to Markdown tables.
