Biblio::Citation::Parser - citation parsing framework


Biblio::Citation::Parser provides generic methods for reference parsers. This class should not be used directly, but rather be overridden by specific parsers. Parsers that extend the Parser class must provide at least the two methods defined here to ensure compatibility.


$cite_parser = Biblio::Citation::Parser->new()

The new() method creates a new parser instance.

$metadata = $parser->parse($reference)

The parse() method takes a reference and returns the extracted metadata.
