NAME ^

Parse::AFP - Parser for IBM's Advanced Function Printing document format

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.25 of Parse::AFP, released October 16, 2010.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Parse::AFP;
    my $afp = Parse::AFP->new('input.afp');
    while (my $rec = $afp->next_member) {
        print $rec->dump;
        # ...
        $rec->refresh; # if modified
    }
    $afp->refresh; # if modified
    $afp->write('output.afp');

DESCRIPTION ^

This module processes IBM's AFP (Advanced Function Printing) files into an object hierarchy; each object may be individually modified, dumped into binary, or written back to another AFP file.

Running the bundled afpdump.pl on a AFP file will probably explain this module's behaviour better than reading this documentation.

METHODS ^

Methods below applies to all objects in the objects hierarchy.

Constructor. Takes either a filename, or a scalar reference to content.

dump

Returns the binary representation of the current object.

write

next_member

Iterator for member objects.

parent

ACCESSORS ^
