NAME

Text::FormatTable - Format text tables

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 my $table = Text::FormatTable->new(r|l);
 $table->head(a, b);
 $table->rule(=);
 $table->row(c, d);
 print $table->render(20);



DESCRIPTION

Text::FormatTable renders simple tables as text. You pass to the constructor (new) a table format specification similar to LaTeX (e.g. r|l|5l|R|20L) and you call methods to fill the table data and insert rules. After the data is filled, you call the render method and the table gets formatted as text.

Methods:
<B>newB>($format) Create a Text::FormatTable object, the format of each column is specified as a character of the $format string. The following formats are defined:
l Left-justified top aligned word-wrapped text.
L Left-justified bottom aligned word-wrapped text.
r Right-justified top aligned word-wrapped text.
R Right-justified bottom aligned word-wrapped text.
10R, 20r, 15L, 12l, Number is fixed width of the column. Justified and aligned word-wrapped text (see above).
’ ’ A space.
| Column separator.
<B>headB>($col1, $col2, ...) Add a header row using $col1, $col2, etc. as cell contents. Note that, at the moment, header rows are treated like normal rows.
<B>rowB>($col1, $col2, ...) Add a row with $col1, $col2, etc. as cell contents.
<B>ruleB>([$char]) Add an horizontal rule. If $char is specified it will be used as character to draw the rule, otherwise ’-’ will be used.
<B>renderB>([$screen_width]) Return the rendered table formatted with $screen_width or 79 if it is not specified.
