NAME

Text::WikiFormat::Blocks - blocktypes for Text::WikiFormat

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

None. Use Text::WikiFormat as the public interface, unless you want to create your own block type.

DESCRIPTION

This module merely creates subclasses of Text::WikiFormat::Block, which is the interesting code. A block is a collection of related lines, such as a code block (text to display verbatim in a monospaced font), a header, an unordered list, an ordered list, and a paragraph (text to display in a proportional font).

Every block extends Text::WikiFormat::Block.

METHODS

The following methods exist:
o new( %args )

Creates and returns a new block. The valid arguments are:
o text

The text of the line found in the block.

o args

The arguments captured by the block-identifying regular expression.

o level

The level of indentation for the block (usually only useful for list blocks).

o tags

The tags in effect for the current type of wiki formatting.

o opts

The options in effect for the current type of wiki formatting.

Use the accessors of the same names to retrieve the values of the attributes.

o add_text( @lines_of_text )

Adds a list of lines of text to the current text for the block. This is very useful when you encounter a block and want to merge it with the previous block of the same type

o add_args( @arguments )

Adds further arguments to the block; useful when merging blocks.

o formatted_text()

Returns text formatted appropriately for this block. Blocks don’t have to have formatters, but they may.

o formatter( $line_of_text )

Formats the $line using Text::WikiFormat::format_line(). You can add your own formatter here; this is worth overriding.

o merge( $next_block )

Merges the current block with $next_block (the next block encountered) if they’re of the same type and are at the same level. This adds the text and args of $next_block to the current block. It’s your responsibility to remove $next_block from whatever your code iterates over.

o nests()

Returns true if this block should nest (as in lists and unordered lists) for the active wiki formatting.

o nest( $next_block )

Nests $next_block under this block if the both nest and if $next_block has a level greater than the current block. This actually adds $next_block as a text item within the current block. Beware.
