Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext(3)




NAME

       Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext - PO and MO file parser for Maketext


SYNOPSIS

       Called via Locale::Maketext::Lexicon:

           package Hello::I18N;
           use base 'Locale::Maketext';
           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon {
               de => [Gettext => 'hello/de.mo'],
           };

       Directly calling "parse()":

           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext;
           my %Lexicon = %{ Locale::Maketext::Lexicon::Gettext->parse(<DATA>) };
           __DATA__
           #: Hello.pm:10
           msgid "Hello, World!"
           msgstr "Hallo, Welt!"

           #: Hello.pm:11
           msgid "You have %quant(%1,piece) of mail."
           msgstr "Sie haben %quant(%1,Poststueck,Poststuecken)."


DESCRIPTION

       This module implements a perl-based "Gettext" parser for
       Locale::Maketext. It transforms all %1, %2, <%*>... sequences to
       "[_1]", "[_2]", "[_*]", and so on.  It accepts either plain PO file, or
       a MO file which will be handled with a pure-perl parser adapted from
       Imacat's "Locale::Maketext::Gettext".

       Since version 0.03, this module also looks for "%function(args...)"  in
       the lexicon strings, and transform it to "[function,args...]".  Any %1,
       %2... sequences inside the args will have their percent signs ("%")
       replaced by underscores ("_").

       The name of function above should begin with a letter or underscore,
       followed by any number of alphanumeric characters and/or underscores.
       As an exception, the function name may also consist of a single
       asterisk ("*") or pound sign ("#"), which are "Locale::Maketext"'s
       shorthands for "quant" and "numf", respectively.

       As an additional feature, this module also parses MIME-header style
       metadata specified in the null msgstr (""), and add them to the
       %Lexicon with a "__" prefix.  For example, the example above will set
       "__Content-Type" to "text/plain; charset=iso8859-1", without the
       newline or the colon.

       Any normal entry that duplicates a metadata entry takes precedence.
       Hence, a "msgid "__Content-Type"" line occurs anywhere should override
       the above value.


OPTIONS

       use_fuzzy

       When parsing PO files, fuzzy entries (entries marked with "#, fuzzy")
       are silently ignored.  If you wish to use fuzzy entries, specify a true
       value to the "_use_fuzzy" option:

           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon {
               de => [Gettext => 'hello/de.mo'],
               _use_fuzzy => 1,
           };

       allow_empty

       When parsing PO files, empty entries (entries with "msgstr """) are
       silently ignored.  If you wish to allow empty entries, specify a true
       value to the "_allow_empty" option:

           use Locale::Maketext::Lexicon {
               de => [Gettext => 'hello/de.mo'],
               _allow_empty => 1,
           };
