NAME ^

XML::TMX::Writer - Perl extension for writing TMX files

SYNOPSIS ^

   use XML::TMX::Writer;

   my $tmx = XML::TMX::Writer->new();

   $tmx->start_tmx(id => 'paulojjs');

   $tmx->add_tu(SRCLANG => 'en', 'en' => 'some text', 'pt' => 'algum texto');
   $tmx->add_tu(SRCLANG => 'en', 
                'en' => 'some text', 
                'pt' => 'algum texto',
                 -note => [32, 34 ],
                 -prop => { q => 23,

   $tmx->end_tmx();

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a simple way for writing TMX files.

METHODS ^

The following methods are available:

new

  $tmx = new XML::TMX::Writer();

Creates a new XML::TMX::Writer object

start_tmx

  $tmx->start_tmx(-output => 'some_file.tmx');

Begins a TMX file. Several options are available:

-output

Output of the TMX, if none is defined stdout is used by default.

tool

Tool used to create the TMX. Defaults to 'XML::TMX::Writer'

toolversion

Some version identification of the tool used to create the TMX. Defaults to the current module version

segtype

Segment type used in the <tu> elements. Possible values are block, paragraph, sentence and phrase. Defaults to sentence.

srctmf

Specifies the format of the translation memory file from which the TMX document or segment thereof have been generated.

adminlang

Specifies the default language for the administrative and informative elements <note> and <prop>.

srclang

Specifies the language of the source text. If a <tu> element does not have a srclang attribute specified, it uses the one defined in the <header> element. Defaults to *all*.

datatype

Specifies the type of data contained in the element. Depending on that type, you may apply different processes to the data.

The recommended values for the datatype attribute are as follow (this list is not exhaustive):

unknown

undefined

alptext

WinJoust data

cdf

Channel Definition Format

cmx

Corel CMX Format

cpp

C and C++ style text

hptag

HP-Tag

html

HTML, DHTML, etc

interleaf

Interleaf documents

ipf

IPF/BookMaster

java

Java, source and property files

javascript

JavaScript, ECMAScript scripts

lisp

Lisp

mif

Framemaker MIF, MML, etc

opentag

OpenTag data

pascal

Pascal, Delphi style text

plaintext

Plain text (default)

pm

PageMaker

rtf

Rich Text Format

sgml

SGML

stf-f

S-Tagger for FrameMaker

stf-i

S-Tagger for Interleaf

transit

Transit data

vbscript

Visual Basic scripts

winres

Windows resources from RC, DLL, EXE

xml

XML

xptag

Quark XPressTag

srcencoding

All TMX documents are in Unicode. However, it is sometimes useful to know what code set was used to encode text that was converted to Unicode for purposes of interchange. This option specifies the original or preferred code set of the data of the element in case it is to be re-encoded in a non-Unicode code set. Defaults to none.

id

Specifies the identifier of the user who created the element. Defaults to none.

-note

A reference to a list of notes to be added in the header.

-prop

A reference fo a hash of properties to be added in the header. Keys are used as the type attribute, value as the tag contents.

add_tu

  $tmx->add_tu(srclang => LANG1, LANG1 => 'text1', LANG2 => 'text2');
  $tmx->add_tu(srclang => LANG1, 
               LANG1 => 'text1', 
               LANG2 => 'text2',
               -note => ["value1",  ## notes
                        "value2"],
               -prop => { type1 => ["value1","value"], #multiple values
                          _ => 'value2',  # anonymound properties
                         typen => ["valuen"],}
              );

Adds a translation unit to the TMX file. Several optional labels can be specified:

id

Specifies an identifier for the <tu> element. Its value is not defined by the standard (it could be unique or not, numeric or alphanumeric, etc.).

srcencoding

Same meaning as told in start_tmx method.

datatype

Same meaning as told in start_tmx method.

segtype

Same meaning as told in start_tmx method.

srclang

Same meaning as told in start_tmx method.

end_tmx
