NAME

Text::Table::ASV - Generate TSV

VERSION

This document describes version 0.001 of Text::Table::ASV (from Perl distribution Text-Table-ASV), released on 2018-07-23.

SYNOPSIS

 use Text::Table::ASV;

 my $rows = [
     # header row
     ['Name', 'Rank', 'Serial'],
     # rows
     ['alice', 'pvt', '123456'],
     ['bob',   'cpl', '98765321'],
     ['carol', 'brig gen', '8745'],
 ];
 print Text::Table::TSV::table(rows => $rows, header_row => 1);

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a single function, table, which formats a two-dimensional array of data as ASV. This is basically a way to generate ASV using the same interface as that of Text::Table::Tiny (v0.03) or Text::Table::Org.

ASV (ASCII separated values, also sometimes DEL a.k.a. Delimited ASCII) is a format similar to TSV (tab separated values). Instead of Tab character ("\t") as the field separator, ASV uses "\x1f" (ASCII Unit Separator character) and instead of newline ("\n") as the record separator, ASV uses "\x1e" (ASCII Record Separator). There is currently no quoting or escaping mechanism provided. "\x1c", "\x1d", "\x1e", and "\x1f" characters in cell will be replaced by spaces.

The example shown in the SYNOPSIS generates the following table (the record separator and unit separator are shown using "\x1f" and "\x1f" respectively):

 Name\x1fRank\x1fSerial\x1ealice\x1fpvt\x1f123456\x1ebob\x1fcpl\x1f98765321\x1ecarol\x1fbrig gen\x1f8745

FUNCTIONS

table(%params) => str

OPTIONS

The table function understands these arguments, which are passed as a hash.

  • rows (aoaos)

    Takes an array reference which should contain one or more rows of data, where each row is an array reference.
