NAME ^

NetSDS::Util::String - string prcessing routines

SYNOPSIS ^

        use NetSDS::Util::String qw();

        # Read from standard input
        my $string = <STDIN>;

        # Encode string to internal structure
        $string = string_encode($tring);

DESCRIPTION ^

NetSDS::Util::String module contains functions may be used to quickly solve string processing tasks like parsing, recoding, formatting.

As in other NetSDS modules standard encoding is UTF-8.

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS ^

str_encode($str[, $encoding]) - encode string to internal UTF-8

By default this function treat first argument as byte string in UTF-8 and return it's internal Unicode representation.

In case of external character set isn't UTF-8 it should be added as second argument of function.

        # Convert UTF-8 byte string to internal Unicode representation
        $uni_string = str_encode($byte_string);

        # Convert KOI8-U byte string to internal
        $uni_string = str_encode($koi8_string, 'KOI8-U');

After str_encode() it's possible to process this string correctly including regular expressions. All characters will be understood as UTF-8 symbols instead of byte sequences.

str_decode($str[, $encoding]) - decode internal UTF-8 to byte string

By default this function treat first argument as string in internal UTF-8 and return it in byte string (external) representation.

In case of external character set isn't UTF-8 it should be added as second argument of function.

        # Get UTF-8 byte string from internal Unicode representation
        $byte_string = str_decode($uni_string);

        # Convert to KOI8-U byte string from internal Unicode
        $koi8_string = str_encode($uni_string, 'KOI8-U');

It's recommended to use str_encode() when preparing data for communication with external systems (especially networking).

str_recode($str, $FROM_ENC[, $TO_ENC]) - recode string

Translate string between different encodings. If target encoding is not set UTF-8 used as default one.

str_trim($str) - remove leading/trailing space characters
        $orig_str = "  string with spaces   ";
        $new_str = str_trim($orig_str);

        # Output: "string with spaces"
        print $new_str;
str_trim_left($str) - removes leading whitespaces

This function is similar to str_trim() except of it removes only leading space characters and leave trailing ones.

str_trim_right($str) - removes trailing whitespaces

This function is similar to str_trim() except of it removes only trailing space characters and leave leading ones.

str_clean($str) - clean string from extra spaces

Function is similar to str_trim() but also changes all spacing chains inside string to single spaces.

str_camelize($strin)

If pass undef - return undef. If pass '' - return ''.

Examples:

        # returns 'getValue'
        str_camelize( 'get_value' )

        # returns 'addUserAction'
        str_camelize( 'ADD_User_actION' )
str_decamelize(...)

If pass undef - return undef. If pass '' - return ''.

Examples:

        # returns 'get_value'
        str_decamelize( 'getValue' )
