Locale::Maketext::Extract::Plugin::YAML - YAML format parser
$plugin = Locale::Maketext::Extract::Plugin::YAML->new( $lexicon # A Locale::Maketext::Extract object @file_types # Optionally specify a list of recognised file types ) $plugin->extract($filename,$filecontents);
Extracts strings to localise from YAML files.
Valid formats are:
key: _'string with embedded 'quotes''
key: |- _'my folded string to translate'
Note, the left hand side of the folded string must line up with the
_, otherwise YAML adds spaces at the beginning of each line.
key: |- _'my block string to translate ' Note, you must use the trailing C<-> so that YAMl doesn't add a carriage return after your final quote.
The docs for the YAML module describes it as alpha code. It is not as tolerant of errors as YAML::Syck. However, because it is pure Perl, it is easy to hook into.
I have seen it enter endless loops, so if xgettext.pl hangs, try running it again with
--verbose --verbose (twice) enabled, so that you can see if the fault lies with YAML. If it does, either correct the YAML source file, or use the file_types to exclude that file.
for extracting translatable strings from common template systems and perl source files.
