NAME

Text::Table::Org - Generate Org tables

VERSION

This document describes version 0.02 of Text::Table::Org (from Perl distribution Text-Table-Org), released on 2015-12-17.

SYNOPSIS

 use Text::Table::Org;

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

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a single function, table, which formats a two-dimensional array of data as an Org text table.

The example shown in the SYNOPSIS generates the following table:

 | Name  | Rank     | Serial   |
 |-------+----------+----------|
 | alice | pvt      | 123456   |
 | bob   | cpl      | 98765321 |
 | carol | brig gen | 8745     |

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.

  • header_row (bool)

    If given a true value, the first row in the data will be interpreted as a header row, and separated from the rest of the table with a ruled line.

SEE ALSO

This module is currently basically Text::Table::Tiny 0.03 modified to output Org tables instead of its original variant table format.

The output of this module is very similar to that of Text::MarkdownTable. In fact, Org recognizes its output as a valid Org table (the only difference is that corner marker is | instead of the Org standard of +).

Some other text table modules: Text::ANSITable, Text::ASCIITable, Text::FormatTable, Text::Table, Text::TabularDisplay.
