NAME ^

Regexp::MultiLanguage - Convert common regular expressions checks in to Perl, PHP, and JavaScript code.

VERSION ^

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS ^

Given a set of regular expressions in a simple format, this module writes code for Perl, PHP, and JavaScript that uses those regular expressions.

    use Regexp::MultiLanguage qw(Perl JavaScript PHP);

    my $snippet = <<'END';
    number : integer || binary
    
    integer : /\d+/
    binary : /0b[01]+/i
    END
    
    print "Perl: \n";
         print Regexp::MultiLanguage->compile( $snippet, 'Perl', 'isa_' );
         
         print "\nJavaScript: \n";
         print Regexp::MultiLanguage->compile( $snippet, 'JavaScript', 'isa_' );
         
         print "\nPHP: \n";
         print Regexp::MultiLanguage->compile( $snippet, 'PHP', 'isa_' );

FORMAT ^

The format used is similar to Parse::RecDescent:

        name : expr

where expr is a boolean expression where each term is either another name or a regular expression.

FUNCTIONS ^

compile

Usage: Regexp::MultiLanguage->compile( $code, $language, [$function_prefix] );

For each name in the "FORMAT" in code, generates one function whose name is [$function_prefix]name. These functions will compile in the language specified (must be Perl, PHP, or JavaScript).
