FAQ ^

o What is the purpose of this set of modules?

It's the basis of a long-term project to write a new interface to GEDCOM files.

How are the modules related?

o Genealogy::Gedcom

This is a dummy module at the moment, which just occupies the namespace.

o Genealogy::Gedcom::Reader

This employs the lexer to do the work. It may one day use a (non-existent) parser too.

Run scripts/read.pl -help.

read.pl is currenly a copy of lex.pl. The latter is recommended.

o Genealogy::Gedcom::Reader::Lexer

This does the real work for finding tokens within GEDCOM files.

Run scripts/lex.pl -help.

See Genealogy::Gedcom::Reader::Lexer for details.
