NAME ^

MARC::Detrans::Rule

SYNOPSIS ^

    use MARC::Detrans::Rule;
    
    my $rule = MARC::Detrans::Rule->new( 
        from    => 'b', 
        to      => 'B',
        escape  => '(B'
    );

DESCRIPTION ^

It's unlikely that you'll want to use MARC::Detrans::Rule directly since other modules wrap access to it. Each detransliteration rule is represented as a MARC::Detrans::Rule object, which basically provides the Romanized text and the corresponding MARC-8 or UTF-8 text, along with an escape character (for MARC-8) rules.

METHODS ^

new()

Pass in the from and c<to> parameters which define the original text and what to translate to; these parameters are not limited to single characters. In addition an escape parameter can be passed in to indicate a MARC-8 escape sequence to use. Also a position parameter can be set to initial, medial or final if the rule applies only when the character is found at or within a particular word boundary.

from()

Returns the Romanized text that this rule refers to.

to()

Returns the MARC-8 or UTF-8 text that the corresponding Romanized text should be converted to.

escape()

Returns a MARC-8 character set escape sequence to be used, or undef if the rule is for an UTF-8 mapping.

position()

Returns a position specification for the rule mapping which can be initial, medial, final or the empty string if there is no positional qualification for the rule.
