NAME ^

Lingua::Flags - Provide small flag icons

SYNOPSIS ^

Provides small flag icons in different formats.

    use Lingua::Flags;

    my $foo = as_html_img("PT");
    print "<p>This is in $foo language</p>";
     
    open GIF, ">image.gif";
    print GIF as_gif("PT");
    close GIF;

DISCLAIMER ^

It is impossible to map flags to languages. Languages cross countries. And countries cross languages. What language should use the Spanish flag? The Catalan or Castilian or other? What flag should be used for Afrikaans? South Africa or Namibia?

I tried to choose the more consensual flags, but in some cases I have doubts. If you have better ideas, please correct me.

Nevertheless, I think this module is useful.

DESCRIPTION ^

Module with small flags icons. You can get them in base64 inline HTML image or as a gif image.

FUNCTIONS ^

as_html_img

Returns an inline HTML image. For now, it just works with Netscape/Gecko based browsers.

as_gif

Returns the gif code. Normally used as:

  open GIF, ">image.gif";
  print GIF as_gif("PT");
  close GIF;
