Table::Simple::Output - generates ASCII output for an Table::Simple object
This class generates the ASCII table output for a Table::Simple object. The output functionality was split to make subclassing easier.
This attribute is the character to mark the beginning or end of a column. The default is ":"
This attribute is the character to mark horizontal lines in the table. The default is "="
This attribute is the character marking the intersection between the column marker and a horizontal rule. The default is "+"
This attribute defines the amount of spaces to put around data rows. The default is 1 space.
This attribute is required at construction time. It is the table to be output. It must be an object of type Table::Simple.
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.
This puts text against the left margin of a table cell, padded with spaces until it is the specified width.
This method puts text against the right margin of a table cell, padded with spaces until it is the specified width.
This method returns a scalar string composed of the rows specified in the input @array.
This method returns a string scalar composed of column names centered in the width for each column.
This outputs the Table::Simple name attribute centered in its own row. It returns a string scalar.
This method returns a string scalar composed of the table name row (if defined), column names, and all row values.
This method outputs the string scalar from the build_table_output() method to standard out.
