NAME ^

Table::Simple::Output - generates ASCII output for an Table::Simple object

DESCRIPTION ^

This class generates the ASCII table output for a Table::Simple object. The output functionality was split to make subclassing easier.

ATTRIBUTES

column_marker

This attribute is the character to mark the beginning or end of a column. The default is ":"

horizontal_rule

This attribute is the character to mark horizontal lines in the table. The default is "="

intersection_marker

This attribute is the character marking the intersection between the column marker and a horizontal rule. The default is "+"

padding

This attribute defines the amount of spaces to put around data rows. The default is 1 space.

table

This attribute is required at construction time. It is the table to be output. It must be an object of type Table::Simple.

METHODS

center($text, $width)

This method takes a text string and a width and centers the text in the width given. It returns the text string padded with spaces to put the text in the middle of the width.

left_justify($text, $width)

This puts text against the left margin of a table cell, padded with spaces until it is the specified width.

right_justify($text, $width)

This method puts text against the right margin of a table cell, padded with spaces until it is the specified width.

build_row_output( @array )

This method returns a scalar string composed of the rows specified in the input @array.

build_column_name_output

This method returns a string scalar composed of column names centered in the width for each column.

build_table_name_output

This outputs the Table::Simple name attribute centered in its own row. It returns a string scalar.

build_table_output

This method returns a string scalar composed of the table name row (if defined), column names, and all row values.

print_table

This method outputs the string scalar from the build_table_output() method to standard out.
