Module Version: 0.24   Source   Latest Release: Parse-AFP-0.25

NAME ^

Parse::AFP - IBM Advanced Function Printing Parser

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.23 of Parse::AFP, released October 21, 2004.

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 the documentation.

dump

Returns the binary representation of the current object.

write

parent
