NAME

CPAN::Search::Lite::Lang - export some common data structures used by CPAN::Search::Lite::*

DESCRIPTION

This module can be used to populate some common data structures used by other CPAN::Search::Lite::* modules based on a requested language. The translated form of these structures are contained in CPAN::Search::Lite::Lang::*.pm (for example, en.pm or fr.pm). A hash %langs is exported, supplying a list of languages available, as well as a function load, used as

   load(lang => $lang, pages => $pages, chaps_desc => $chaps_desc);

which will, for example, take the data structure $pages and populate $pages->{$lang} with the appropriate $page from the requested $pages from CPAN::Search::Lite::Lang::$lang.pm. At present the available data structures are:

  • $chaps_desc

    This is a hash reference giving a description, in different languages, of the various CPAN chapter ids.

      foreach my $lang(sort keys %$chaps_desc) {
       print "For language $lang\n";
         foreach my $id(sort {$a <=> $b} keys %{$chaps_desc->{$lang}}) {
           print "   $id => $chaps_desc->{$lang}->{$id}\n";
         }
      }

    Special characters used are HTML-encoded.

  • $dslip

    This is a hash reference describing the dslip (development, support, language, interface, and public license) information, available in different languages:

      for my $lang (sort keys %$dslip) {
        print "For language $lang:\n";
          for my $key (qw/d s l i p/) {
            print "  For key $key: $dslip->{$lang}->{$key}->{desc}\n";
              for my $entry (sort keys %{$dslip->{$lang}->{$key}}) {
                next if $entry eq 'desc';
                print "    Entry $entry: $dslip->{$lang}->{$key}->{$entry}\n"; 
            }
        }
      }

    Special characters used are HTML-encoded.

  • $pages

    This hash, with keys being various languages, provides some translations of terms used in the tt2 pages.

  • $months

    This hash, with keys being various languages, provides translations of the abbreviations of names of the months.
