Text::VisualPrintf - printf family functions to handle Non-ASCII characters
use Text::VisualPrintf; Text::VisualPrintf::printf FORMAT, LIST Text::VisualPrintf::sprintf FORMAT, LIST use Text::VisualPrintf qw(vprintf vsprintf); vprintf FORMAT, LIST vsprintf FORMAT, LIST
Text::VisualPrintf is a almost-printf-compatible library with a capability of handling multi-byte wide characters properly.
When the given string is truncated by the maximum precision, space character is padded if the wide character does not fit to the remained space.
- printf FORMAT, LIST
- sprintf FORMAT, LIST
- vprintf FORMAT, LIST
- vsprintf FORMAT, LIST
Use just like perl's printf and sprintf functions except that printf does not take FILEHANDLE.
Take a look at an experimental
Text::VisualPrintf::IOif you want to work with FILEHANDLE and printf.
Strings in the LIST which contains wide-width character are replaced before formatting, and recovered after the process.
Unique replacement string contains combinations of two ASCII characters not found in the format string and all parameters. If two characters are not available, function behaves just like a standard one.
