NAME

Text::Emoticon::MSN - Emoticon filter of MSN Messenger

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Text::Emoticon::MSN;

  my $emoticon = Text::Emoticon::MSN->new(
      imgbase => "http://example.com/emo",
  );

  my $text = "Yet Another Perl Hacker ;-)";
  print $emoticon->filter($text);

  # it prints
  # Yet Another Perl Hacker <img src="http://example.com/emo/regular_smile.gif" />



DESCRIPTION

Text::Emoticon::MSN is a text filter that replaces text emoticons like :-), ;-P, etc. to the icons of MSN Messenger, detailed in http://messenger.msn.com/Resource/Emoticons.aspx

METHODS

new


  $emoticon = Text::Emoticon::MSN->new(
      imgbase => "http://yourhost.example.com/images/emoticons",
      xhtml   => 1,
      class   => "emoticon",
  );



Constructs new Text::Emoticon::MSN object. It accepts two options:
imgbase Base URL where icon gif files are located. It defaults to http://messenger.msn.com/Resource/emoticons (the MSN site) but I don’t recommend that, as there’s a possibility MSN will ban your site.
xhtml Whether it uses XHTML style img tags. It defaults to 1.
class CSS class used in img tags. It defaults to nothing.



  $emoticon = Text::Emoticon::MSN->new(class => "emo");



will print:



  <img src="blah.gif" class="emo" />



strict Whether it will disable smileys with space in them. defaults to 0.

filter


  $filtered_text = $emoticon->filter($text);



Filters emoticons in text and returns img tagged text (HTML).

TODO

o Handling original emoticons. (Patches welcome)
o Common API for other Emoticons like Yahoo! (maybe Text::Emoticons)
