Lingua::Conjunction is a module to create sentence-style, human-readable lists of items from a Perl list. For example, given the list ("foo", "bar", "baz") it would return the string "foo, bar, and baz". If any of the strings in the list had a comma in them, it would switch to using a semicolon. It supports multiple languages and use of arbitrary separator characters. It handles any number of items gracefully, even two or one.
Template::Plugin::Lingua::Conjunction is a wrapper around this module so that it can be used from the Template Toolkit.
The main method of this plugin is
list for short). It takes a list of items or arrays of items which should be converted and returns a human-readable string representation.
Template::Plugin::Lingua::Conjunction also supports Lingua::Conjunction's settings methods, namely
penultimate. For documentation on them, see Lingua::Conjunction.
