PostScript::Report::LinkField - A field that can contain hyperlinks
This document describes version 0.10 of PostScript::Report::LinkField, released November 30, 2013 as part of PostScript-Report version 0.13.
This Component is a text field that can contain hyperlinks. It's intended for use when the report will be converted to a PDF file.

it always uses
font to draw the text,
The hyperlink syntax is a tiny subset of Markdown syntax (http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax). Only the following codes are recognized:

The angle bracket forms cannot contain whitespace, or they will not be recognized. If you want angle brackets surrounding the link in the text, use two angle brackets:
You can escape any character by preceding it with a backslash. The only character that must always be escaped is
\. You only need to escape
< if they would otherwise appear to start a hyperlink.
A LinkField has all the normal component attributes, including
It also has the following attributes, whose values may be inherited.
This is the color used by hyperlinks (default
#00F, meaning blue). See "Color" in PostScript::Report::Types.
This is the color used by regular text (default 0, meaning black).
If set to a true value, hyperlinks will be underlined. The default is true.
No bugs have been reported.
