NAME

Log::Report::Lexicon::POTcompact - use translations from a POT file

INHERITANCE

 Log::Report::Lexicon::POTcompact
   is a Log::Report::Lexicon::Table

SYNOPSIS

 # using a PO table efficiently
 my $pot = Log::Report::Lexicon::POTcompact->read('po/nl.po')
    or die;

 my $header = $pot->msgid('');
 print $pot->msgstr('msgid', 3);

DESCRIPTION

This module is translating, based on PO files. PO files are used to store translations in humanly readable format for most of existing translation frameworks, like GNU gettext and Perl's Maketext.

Internally, this module tries to be as efficient as possible: high speed and low memory foot-print. You will not be able to sub-class this class cleanly.

If you like to change the content of PO files, then use Log::Report::Lexicon::POT.

Log::Report::Lexicon::POTcompact->read($filename, %options)
