NAME

db_to_html_table - convert db to an HTML table

SYNOPSIS

    db_to_html_table [-g N] <source.fsdb >dest.html

DESCRIPTION

Covert an existing dbtable to an HTML table. The output is a fragment of an HTML page; we assume the user fills in the rest (head and body, etc.).

Input is fsdb format.

Output is HTML code (not fsdb), with HTML-specific characters (less than, greater than, ampersand) are escaped. (The fsdb-1.x version assumed input was ISO-8859-1; we now assume both input and output are unicode. This change is considered a feature of the 21st century.)

OPTIONS

-g N or <--group-count N>

Color groups of N consecutive rows with one background color.

This module also supports the standard fsdb options:

-d

Enable debugging output.

-i or --input InputSource

Read from InputSource, typically a file name, or - for standard input, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.

-o or --output OutputDestination

Write to OutputDestination, typically a file name, or - for standard output, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.

--autorun or --noautorun

By default, programs process automatically, but Fsdb::Filter objects in Perl do not run until you invoke the run() method. The --(no)autorun option controls that behavior within Perl.

--help

Show help.

--man

SAMPLE USAGE

Input:

        #fsdb -F S account passwd uid gid fullname homedir shell
        johnh  *  2274  134  John & Ampersand  /home/johnh  /bin/bash
        greg  *  2275  134  Greg < Lessthan  /home/greg  /bin/bash
        root  *  0  0  Root ; Semi  /root  /bin/bash
        four  *  1  1  Fourth Row  /home/four  /bin/bash

Command:

    cat data.fsdb | db_to_csv -g 3

Output:

        <table>
        <tr><th>account</th> <th>passwd</th> <th>uid</th> <th>gid</th> <th>fullname</th> <th>homedir</th> <th>shell</th> </tr>
        <tr bgcolor="#f0f0f0"><td>johnh</td> <td>*</td> <td>2274</td> <td>134</td> <td>John &amp; Ampersand</td> <td>/home/johnh</td> <td>/bin/bash</td> </tr>
        <tr bgcolor="#f0f0f0"><td>greg</td> <td>*</td> <td>2275</td> <td>134</td> <td>Greg &lt; Lessthan</td> <td>/home/greg</td> <td>/bin/bash</td> </tr>
        <tr bgcolor="#f0f0f0"><td>root</td> <td>*</td> <td>0</td> <td>0</td> <td>Root ; Semi</td> <td>/root</td> <td>/bin/bash</td> </tr>
        <tr bgcolor="#d0d0d0"><td>four</td> <td>*</td> <td>1</td> <td>1</td> <td>Fourth Row</td> <td>/home/four</td> <td>/bin/bash</td> </tr>
        </table>
