Biber::Entry

    Initialize a Biber::Entry object
    There are three types of field possible in an entry:
    * raw  - These are direct copies of input fields with no processing performed on them.
             Such fields are used for tool mode where we don't want to alter the fields as they
             need to go back into the output as they are
    * data - These are fields which derive directly from or are themselves fields in the
             data souce. Things like YEAR, MONTH, DAY etc. are such fields which are derived from,
             for example, the DATE field (which is itself a "raw" field). They are part of the
             original data implicitly, derived from a "raw" field.
    * other - These are fields, often meta-information like labelname, labelalpha etc. which are
              more removed from the data fields.
    The reason for this division is largely the entry cloning required for the related entry and
    inheritance features. When we clone an entry or copy some fields from one entry to another
    we generally don't want the "other" category as such derived meta-fields will often need
    to be re-created or ignored so we need to know which are the actual "data" fields to copy/clone.
    "raw" fields are important when we are writing bibtex format output (in tool mode for example)
    since in such cases, we don't want to derive implicit fields like YEAR/MONTH from DATE.

    Recursively create related entry clones starting with an entry

    Clone a Biber::Entry object and return a copy
    Accepts optionally a key for the copy

    Test for an empty object

  Record the labelname information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Takes a hash ref with the information.

  Retrieve the labelname information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Returns a hash ref with the information.

  Record the fullhash labelname information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Takes a hash ref with the information.

  Retrieve the fullhash labelname information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Returns a hash ref with the information.

  Record the labeltitle information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Takes a hash ref with the information.

  Retrieve the labeltitle information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Returns a hash ref with the information.

  Record the labeldate information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Takes a hash ref with the information.

  Retrieve the labeldate information. This is special
  meta-information so we have a seperate method for this
  Returns a hash ref with the information.

  Set a derived field for a Biber::Entry object, that is, a field
  which was not an actual bibliography field

    Get a field for a Biber::Entry object
    Uses // as fields can be null (end dates etc).

    Set a field which is in the .bib data file

    Save a copy of the raw field from the datasource

    Get a raw field

    Get a field that was in the original data file

    Delete a field in a Biber::Entry object

    Delete an original data source data field in a Biber::Entry object

    Check whether a field exists (even if null)

    Returns a sorted array of the fields which came from the data source

    Returns a sorted array of the raw fields and contents

    Returns the number of datafields

    Returns a sorted array of all field names, including ones
    added during processing which are not necessarily fields
    which came from the data file

    Returns the number of fields

    Check if a Biber::Entry object has a particular keyword in
    in the KEYWORDS field.

    Append a warning to a Biber::Entry object

    Inherit fields from parent entry
    $entry->set_inherit_from($parententry);
    Takes a second Biber::Entry object as argument
    Tailored for set inheritance which is a straight 1:1 inheritance,
    excluding certain fields for backwards compatibility

    Recursively resolve XDATA fields in an entry
    $entry->resolve_xdata($xdata_entry);

    Inherit fields from parent entry (as indicated by the crossref field)
    $entry->inherit_from($parententry);
    Takes a second Biber::Entry object as argument
    Uses the crossref inheritance specifications from the .bcf

    Dump Biber::Entry object
