DESCRIPTION

METHODS

$obj->add_text_to_section($document, $text, $section[, \%opts])

Add a string $text to a section named $section.

$text will be converted into a POD element tree first.

Section are POD paragraphs under a heading (=head1, =head2 and so on). Section name will be searched case-insensitively.

If section does not yet already exist: will create the section (if create option is true) or will die. Section will be created with =head1 heading at the bottom of the document (XXX is there a use-case where we need to add at the top and need to provide a create_top option? XXX is there a use-case where we need to create head2 and so on?).

If section already exists, will skip and do nothing (if ignore option is true, not unlike INSERT OR IGNORE in SQL) or will add text. Text will be added at the bottom the existing text, unless when top option is true in which case will text will be added at the top the existing text.

Options:

  • create => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to create section if it does not already exist in the document.

  • after_section => str|array

    When creating a section, attempt to put the new section after the specified section(s). This is evaluated before before_section.

  • before_section => str|array

    When creating a section, attempt to put the new section before the specified section(s).

  • ignore => bool (default: 0)

    If set to true, then if section already exist will skip adding the text.

  • top => bool (default: 0)

    If set to true, will add text at the top of existing text instead of at the bottom.
