NAME ^

Parse::USDASR - Parse USDA Food nutrition standard reference data files.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Parse::USDASR;

  my $parser = Parse::USDASR->new;
  $parser->io(\*STDIN);
  $parser->each_line(
      sub {
          my @fields = @_;
          # ... 
      }
  );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module helps you parse the SR21 data files download-able from:

http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=8964

METHODS ^

new

Constructor. Takes no args, returns a parser object. The next thing you should do is to call its io method and assign an IO stream.

io( \*FH | $handle )

Attribute accessor. You need to assign an io stream object before start parsing. You can pass an reference to file handle:

    open FH, "< FOOD_DES.txt";
    $parser->io( \*FH );

Or anything that can be placed inside of the diamond operator (<>):

    # An tied IO::All object
    $parser->io( io("FOOD_DES.txt")->tie );
each_line(sub { ... })

For each line read from the io stream, call your call back with parsed fields in @_. Consult the sr21_doc.pdf file for field definition.

  $parser->each_line(
      sub {
          my @fields = @_;
          # ... 
      }
  );
field_names_for( $file_name )

Returns the list of field names for the given file. The field definition is looked up by file name:

    @field_names = Parse::USDASR->field_names_for('WEIGHT.txt');
    # NDB_No, Seq, Amount, Msre_Desc, Gm_Wgt, Num_Data_Pts, Std_Dev

Again, consult the sr21_doc.pdf file for field definition.
