NAME

Ham::Locator - Convert between Maidenhead locators and latitude/longitude.

SYNOPSIS

  use Ham::Locator;
  my $m = new Ham::Locator;
  $m->set_loc('IO93lo');
  my ($latitude, $longitude) = $m->loc2latlng;

DEPENDENCIES

  • Carp - for error handling

  • Class::Accessor - for accessor method generation

CONSTRUCTORS

Locator->new

Creates a new Ham::Locator object.

ACCESSORS

$locator->set_loc(locator)

Sets the locator to use for conversion to latitude and longitude.

METHODS

$locator->latlng2loc

converts the latitude and longitude set by set_latlng to the locator, and returns it as a string.

$locator->loc2latlng

Converts the locator set by set_loc to latitude and longitude, and returns them as an array of two values.

CAVEATS

The obvious latlng2loc doesn't exist yet. This module was written to serve a specific purpose, so hopefully I'll be adding this shortly.
