NAME ^

String::Unquotemeta - undo what quotemeta() does, nothing more nothing less

VERSION ^

This document describes String::Unquotemeta version 0.1

SYNOPSIS ^

    use String::Unquotemeta;
    
    my $japh = 'J.A.P.H.';
    my $meta = quotemeta($japh); # J\.A\.P\.H\.
    my $undo = unquotemeta($meta); # J.A.P.H.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides one simple function, unquotemeta(), that undoes the escaping that quotemeta() does.

It handles undefined values, no values, too many values, etc the same way as quotemeta(). Think of it as quotemeta()'s evil twin.

unquotemeta() is exported into the calling name space unless you bring in the module without it's import() method being called:

    use String::Unquotemeta (); # do not call import() == do not pollute my name space
    my $undone = String::Unquotemeta::unquotemeta($string);  

    require String::Unquotemeta; # do not call import() == do not pollute my name space
    my $undone = String::Unquotemeta::unquotemeta($string);

INTERFACE ^

unquotemeta()

Takes one argument, the string to undo what quotemeta() did.

If no argument is given, then it uses $_ (like quotemeta()).

If an undefined argument is given, it returns '' (like quotemeta()).

DIAGNOSTICS ^

Throws no warnings or errors of it's own.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

String::Unquotemeta requires no configuration files or environment variables.

DEPENDENCIES ^

None.

SEE ALSO ^

String::Escape has an unquotemeta() function also. If you need all of the other utilities and exporting it provides feel free to use it instead.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.
