NAME

Text::Table::Any - Generate text table using one of several backends

VERSION

This document describes version 0.092 of Text::Table::Any (from Perl distribution Text-Table-Any), released on 2018-07-23.

SYNOPSIS

 use Text::Table::Any;

 my $rows = [
     # header row
     ['Name', 'Rank', 'Serial'],
     # rows
     ['alice', 'pvt', '123456'],
     ['bob',   'cpl', '98765321'],
     ['carol', 'brig gen', '8745'],
 ];
 print Text::Table::Any::table(rows => $rows, header_row => 1,
                               backend => 'Text::Table::Tiny');

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a single function, table, which formats a two-dimensional array of data as text table, using one of several available backends. The interface is modelled after Text::Table::Tiny (0.3); Text::Table::Tiny also happens to be the default backend.

The example shown in the SYNOPSIS generates the following table:

 +-------+----------+----------+
 | Name  | Rank     | Serial   |
 +-------+----------+----------+
 | alice | pvt      | 123456   |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen | 8745     |
 +-------+----------+----------+

When using Text::Table::Org backend, the result is something like:

 | Name  | Rank     | Serial   |
 |-------+----------+----------|
 | alice | pvt      | 123456   |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen | 8745     |

When using Text::Table::CSV backend:

 "Name","Rank","Serial"
 "alice","pvt","123456"
 "bob","cpl","98765321"
 "carol","brig gen","8745"

When using Text::ANSITable backend:

 .-------+----------+----------.
 | Name  | Rank     |   Serial |
 +-------+----------+----------+
 | alice | pvt      |   123456 |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen |     8745 |
 `-------+----------+----------'

When using Text::ASCIITable backend:

 .-----------------------------.
 | Name  | Rank     | Serial   |
 +-------+----------+----------+
 | alice | pvt      |   123456 |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen |     8745 |
 '-------+----------+----------'

When using Text::FormatTable backend:

 Name |Rank    |Serial
 alice|pvt     |123456
 bob  |cpl     |98765321
 carol|brig gen|8745

When using Text::MarkdownTable backend:

 | Name  | Rank     | Serial   |
 |-------|----------|----------|
 | alice | pvt      | 123456   |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen | 8745     |

When using Text::Table backend:

 Name  Rank     Serial
 alice pvt        123456
 bob   cpl      98765321
 carol brig gen     8745

When using Text::TabularDisplay backend:

 +-------+----------+----------+
 | Name  | Rank     | Serial   |
 +-------+----------+----------+
 | alice | pvt      | 123456   |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen | 8745     |
 +-------+----------+----------+

FUNCTIONS

table(%params) => str

OPTIONS

The table function understands these arguments, which are passed as a hash.

  • rows (aoaos)

    Required. Takes an array reference which should contain one or more rows of data, where each row is an array reference.

  • backend (str, default Text::Table::Tiny)

    Optional. Pick a backend module. Supported backends:

    • Text::ANSITable

    • Text::ASCIITable

    • Text::FormatTable

    • Text::MarkdownTable

    • Text::Table

    • Text::Table::CSV

    • Text::Table::TSV

    • Text::Table::LTSV

    • Text::Table::ASV

    • Text::Table::HTML

    • Text::Table::HTML::DataTables

    • Text::Table::Org

    • Text::Table::Paragraph

    • Text::Table::Tiny

    • Text::Table::TinyColor

    • Text::Table::TinyColorWide

    • Text::Table::TinyWide

    • Text::TabularDisplay

  • header_row (bool, default 0)

    Optional. If given a true value, the first row in the data will be interpreted as a header row, and separated visually from the rest of the table (e.g. with a ruled line). But some backends won't display differently.
