NAME

Config::Irssi::Parser - Yapp-based LALR parser for the irssi config files.

SYNOPSIS

  use Config::Irssi::Parser;
  my $p = new Config::Irssi::Parser;
  my $hashref = $p->parse(\*STDIN);

DESCRIPTION

This parses an irssi config file into the equivelent perl data structure. It's quite simple, really.

METHODS

new()

This is a simple constructor that returns a new Config::Irssi::Parser object.

parse($fh)

Parser the contents of $fh and return a hashref of its contents, or undef on failure.

LIMITATIONS

The current implementation loses all comments and empty lines, which is in contrast to irssi's own parser which preserves both comments and empty lines. If anyone has an elegant way of fixing this, patches are welcome.

BUGS

There might be issues with backslashes... Quite likely there are many other bugs.
