=head1 NAME

Text::Pipe::Repeat - Common text filter API

=head1 SYNOPSIS

    Text::Pipe::Repeat->new(times => 2, join => "\n");

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This is a pipe segment that takes input, repeats it a given number of times
(default: 2) and join the repeated strings with a given value (default: empty
string).

=head1 METHODS

=over 4

=item C<clear_join>

    $obj->clear_join;

Clears the value that indicates how the repeated input should be joined.

=item C<clear_times>

    $obj->clear_times;

Clears the value that indicates how many times the input should be repeated.

=item C<filter_single>

Implements the actual segment filter that acts upon a single string. It takes
an input string, repeats it a number of times indicated by C<times()> and
joins the repeated strings with the value of C<join()>, then returns it.

=item C<join>

    my $value = $obj->join;
    $obj->join($value);

A basic getter/setter method. The value indicates how the repeated input
should be joined. If called without an argument, it returns the value. If
called with a single argument, it sets the value.

=item C<join_clear>

Synonym for C<clear_join()>.

=item C<times>

    my $value = $obj->times;
    $obj->times($value);

A basic getter/setter method. The value indicates how many times the input
should be repeated. If called without an argument, it returns the value. If
called with a single argument, it sets the value.

=item C<times_clear>

Synonym for C<clear_times()>.
