FAQ

How to add support for new formats?

First make sure that Data::Format::Pretty::<FORMAT> module is available for your format. Look on CPAN. If it's not, i't also not hard to create one.

Then, add your format to %Perinci::Result::Format::Formats hash:

 use Perinci::Result::Format;

 # this means format named 'xml' will be handled by Data::Format::Pretty::XML
 $Perinci::Result::Format::Formats{xml} = ['XML', 'text/xml'];
