Module Version: 0.10   Source   Latest Release: Data-PrintUtils-0.12

NAME ^

Data::PrintUtils - A Collection of Pretty Print routines like Data::Dumper

VERSION ^

Version 0.10

SYNOPSIS ^

Provides a collection of pretty print routines

PURPOSE ^

This module is meant to provide some Data::Dumper like print routines tailored to DBI style tables and hashes along with some debug options

EXPORT ^

print_pid say_pid formatList formatOneLineHash formatHash formatTable pivotTable joinTable $USE_PIDS $USE_TIME

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

print_pid

A replacement for print that will optionally prepend the processID and the timestamp to a line

These two fields are turned off/on with the package variables:

    $Data::PrintUtils::USE_PIDS = 1 or 0;
    $Data::PrintUtils::USE_TIME = 1 or 0;

say_pid

A replacement for say that will optionally prepend the processID and the timestamp to a line

These two fields are turned off/on with the package variables:

    $Data::PrintUtils::USE_PIDS = 1 or 0;
    $Data::PrintUtils::USE_TIME = 1 or 0;

formatList

Formats a list as a single line of comma seperated values in '(' ')'

An optional hash may be passed as the first argument to configure the following:

        LIST_START          => "(", # The String denoting the start of the list
        LIST_END            => ")", # The String denoting the end of the list
        ELEMENT_SEPARATOR   => ", ",  # The String seperating elements of the list

Note that these means that the unadorned list may not start with a hash ref :(

formatOneLineHash

Formats a hash as a single line of => and comma separated values in '{' '}'

The hash to be printed is passed as a reference in the first parameter The rest of the arguments are parsed as options in Getopt::CommandLineExports format:

        PRIMARY_KEY_ORDER       => undef, # ordering for the has keys (undef means undefined perl ordering)
        HASH_START              => "{",   # String denoting the start of the hash 
        HASH_END                => "}",   # String denoting the end of the hash 
        ELEMENT_SEPARATOR       => ", ",  # String seperating the key/value pairs of the hash 
        KEY_VALUE_SEPARATOR     => " => ",# String seperating the keys and the values of the hash
        UNDEF_VALUE             => "undef", # String to print if the  value of the hash is undefined or if the key does not exist, but does in the PRIMARY_KEY_ORDER
        NOTEXIST_VALUE          => "notExist", # String to print if the key does not exist, but does in the PRIMARY_KEY_ORDER

formatHash

Formats a Hash with one level deep expansion Each key/value pair is a single line that may be justified right or left for prettiness

        KEY_JUSTIFCATION    => 'Right', # justifcation (Right or Left) for the key column
        VALUE_JUSTIFICATION => 'Left', # justifcation (Right or Left)  for the Value column
        MAX_KEY_WIDTH       => 10000, # maximum column width for the key column
        MAX_VALUE_WIDTH     => 10000, # maximum column width for the Value column
        PRIMARY_KEY_ORDER   => undef, # ordering for the hash keys (undef means undefined perl ordering)
        SECONDARY_KEY_ORDER => undef, # ordering for the hash keys of any sub keys (undef means undefined perl ordering)
        KEY_VALUE_SEPARATOR     => " => ",# String seperating the keys and the values of the hash
        UNDEF_VALUE             => "undef", # String to print if the  value of the hash is undefined or if the key does not exist, but does in the PRIMARY_KEY_ORDER
        NOTEXIST_VALUE          => "notExist", # String to print if the key does not exist, but does in the PRIMARY_KEY_ORDER

formatTable

Formats a table (given as an array of hash references (as returned from DBI) ) into a somewhat pleasant display. With the Columns argument, you can chose to only print a subset of the columns (and you can define the column ordering).

ROWS

This is a reference to the table (which should be an array of hashes refs)

COLUMNS

This is a list of columns (in order) to be displayed

UNDEF_VALUE

This is a string value to be displayed whenever an item is "undefined"

pivotTable

pivots an attribute-value table (given as an array of hash references (as returned from DBI) ) into a new table with a row for each unique PIVOT_KEY and a column for each attribute

example:

        my @table = 
        (
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'PID',  VALUE => '1a', XTRA1 => '111'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'SID',  VALUE => 's1', XTRA1 => '112'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'XV1',  VALUE => 'YY', XTRA1 => '116'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'XV2',  VALUE => 'XX', XTRA1 => '117'},

        {COL1 => 2, Name => 'PID',  VALUE => '2a', XTRA1 => '221'},
        {COL1 => 2, Name => 'SID',  VALUE => 's2', XTRA1 => '222'},
        {COL1 => 2, Name => 'XV2',  VALUE => 'XX2', XTRA1 => '224'},
        );
        my @newTable1 = pivotTable { ROWS => \@table, PIVOT_KEY => 'COL1', VALUE_HEADER_KEY=> 'Name', VALUE_KEY => 'VALUE'};
        say formatTable { ROWS => \@newTable1, UNDEF_VALUE => 'NULL'} if @newTable1;

results in

        COL1 PID SID  XV1 XV2
        1  1a  s1   YY  XX
        2  2a  s2 NULL XX2

example:

        my @table = 
        (
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'PID',  VALUE => '1a', XTRA1 => '111'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'SID',  VALUE => 's1', XTRA1 => '112'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'XV1',  VALUE => 'YY', XTRA1 => '116'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'XV1',  VALUE => 'ZZ', XTRA1 => '116'},
        {COL1 => 1, Name => 'XV2',  VALUE => 'XX', XTRA1 => '117'},

        {COL1 => 2, Name => 'PID',  VALUE => '2a', XTRA1 => '221'},
        {COL1 => 2, Name => 'SID',  VALUE => 's2', XTRA1 => '222'},
        {COL1 => 2, Name => 'XV2',  VALUE => 'XX2', XTRA1 => '224'},
        );
        my @newTable1 = pivotTable { ROWS => \@table, PIVOT_KEY => 'COL1', VALUE_HEADER_KEY=> 'Name', VALUE_KEY => 'VALUE', CONCAT_DUPLICATE => 1};
        say formatTable { ROWS => \@newTable1, UNDEF_VALUE => 'NULL'} if @newTable1;

results in

        COL1 PID SID  XV1      XV2
        1  1a    s1   YY | ZZ  XX
        2  2a    s2   NULL     XX2

joinTable

creates a new table that is either the simple equijoin of the left and right table, or, if LEFT_JOIN_KEY_UNIQUE is set, then Joins the Right Table to the Left Table (all rows of the left table are included)
