DESCRIPTION

Text::UnicodeTable::Simple creates character table.

There are some modules for creating a text table at CPAN, Text::ASCIITable, Text::SimpleTable, Text::Table etc. But those module deal with only ASCII, don't deal with full width characters. If you use them with full width characters, a table created may be bad-looking.

Text::UnicodeTable::Simple resolves problem of full width characters. So you can use Japansese Hiragana, Katakana, Korean Hangeul, Chinese Kanji characters. See eg/ directory for examples.

INTERFACE

Methods

new(%args)

Creates and returns a new table instance with %args.

%args might be

header :ArrayRef

Table header. If you set table header with constructor, you can omit set_header method.

border :Bool = True

ansi_color :Bool = False

set_header() [alias: addCols ]

Set the headers for the table. (compare with <th> in HTML). You must call set_header firstly. If you call other methods without calling set_header, then you fail.

Input strings should be string, not octet stream.

add_row(@list_of_columns | \@list_of_columns) [alias: addRow ]

Add one row to the table.

Input strings should be string, not octet stream.

add_rows(@list_of_columns)

Add rows to the table. You can add row at one time. Each @collists element should be ArrayRef.

add_row_line() [alias: addRowLine ]

Add a line after the current row. If 'border' parameter is false, add a new line.

draw()

Text::UnicodeTable::Simple overload stringify operator, so you can omit ->draw() method.
