NAME

Locale::Po4a::Common - common parts of the po4a scripts and utils

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

Locale::Po4a::Common contains common parts of the po4a scripts and some useful functions used along the other modules.

In order to use Locale::Po4a programatically, one may want to disable the use of Text::WrapI18N, by writing e.g.



    use Locale::Po4a::Common qw(nowrapi18n);
    use Locale::Po4a::Text;



instead of:



    use Locale::Po4a::Text;



Ordering is important here: as most Locale::Po4a modules themselves load Locale::Po4a::Common, the first time this module is loaded determines whether Text::WrapI18N is used.

FUNCTIONS

    Showing output messages

o show_version($)

Shows the current version of the script, and a short copyright message. It takes the name of the script as an argument.

o wrap_msg($@)

This function displays a message the same way than sprintf() does, but wraps the result so that they look nice on the terminal.

o wrap_mod($$@)

This function works like wrap_msg(), but it takes a module name as the first argument, and leaves a space at the left of the message.

o wrap_ref_mod($$$@)

This function works like wrap_msg(), but it takes a file:line reference as the first argument, a module name as the second one, and leaves a space at the left of the message.

    Wrappers for other modules

o Locale::Gettext

When the Locale::Gettext module cannot be loaded, this module provide dummy (empty) implementation of the following functions. In that case, po4a messages won’t get translated but the program will continue to work.

If Locale::gettext is present, this wrapper also calls setlocale(LC_MESSAGES, "") so callers don’t depend on the POSIX module either.
o bindtextdomain($$)
o textdomain($)
o gettext($)
o dgettext($$)
