BookBot Collates text files into a single file

Asking for wisdom on whether or not an application should go on CPAN. I write science fiction, and keep each scene in a text file. BookBot collates the files into one larger file, and inserts section break markers that can be replaced with page breaks in LibreOffice. Future state includes LaTeX output, grade level reporting, and repeated word counts.

Is that something anyone besides me finds useful?

Finance::IG Module gor using IG Markets REST API.

The sample code lists your positions and prints them out in a 1 line per position format.

Transactions and accounts can be listed in a similar way.

This code is at an early stage and should serve as a framework for further additions.

I invite anyone who has an IG account and uses the REST API with an api key to try it and advise how you get on.

Text::Transform transform and recover interface for text processing

This module is currently included in Text::VisualPrintf distribution as Text::VisualPrintf::Transform, and I'm planning to release it as an individual module.

Library using Text::VisualPrintf::Transform

Application using Text::VisualPrintf::Transform

Application using Text::ANSI::Printf intensively

DESCRIPTION

This is a general interface to transform text data into desirable form, and recover the result after the process.

For example, Text::Tabs does not take care of Asian wide characters to calculate string width. So the next program does not work as we wish.

use Text::Tabs;
print expand <>;

In this case, make transform object with length function which understand wide-character width, and the pattern of string to be replaced.

use Text::VisualPrintf::Transform;
use Text::VisualWidth::PP;
my $xform = Text::VisualPrintf::Transform->new(
    length => \&Text::VisualWidth::PP::width,
    match => qr/\P{ASCII}+/,
);

Then next program encode data, call expand() function, and recover the result into the original text.

my @lines = <>;
$xform->encode(@lines);
my @expanded = expand @lines;
$xform->decode(@expanded);
print @expanded;

Fancy::Open Fancy::Open opens a file and creates an array with several options.

(The module has been renamed, url updated.)

NAME

Fancy::Open opens a file and creates an array with an optional prefix string, suffix string, or both to the lines in the file. You can also add an optional string to join the prefix, line, and suffix. You can specify how to handle empty lines. The array is returned in your preferred encoding.

VERSION

This document describes Fancy::Open version 1.0.

DESCRIPTION

fancy_open can be exported and returns a list of values. These values can be modified if the optional parameters prefix, suffix, or both are used. You can also add a joiner string to join the prefix, line, and suffix. If your file could have empty lines, the empty option can be used to specify how to handle them. There is the additional option to choose your encoding, the default is utf-8.

If the open fails, fancy_open will die.

perl my @fancy_array = fancy_open( 'file_path', { 'prefix' => 'prefix_string', 'suffix' => 'suffix_string', 'joiner' => 'joiner_string', 'empty' => 'empty_option', # fill, blank, or undefined 'encoding' => 'encoding_option' # any valid encoding } );

The file is also closed by fancy_open.

Fancy::Open requires Perl version 5.6 or better.

Parameters

fancy_open has two parameters.

Note: all sample returned arrays are the results from Data::Dump.

Sample file contents.

red orange yellow spring green teal cyan azure blue violet magenta pink white black gray

file

perl my @plain_array = fancy_open('file_path');

The first parameter is the file to be opened. If this is the only parameter specified, the file will be opened, encoded to utf-8, and returned as a list.

Options

The second parameter are the options: prefix, suffix, joiner, empty, and encoding.

prefix

perl my @prefix_array = fancy_open('file_path', { 'prefix' => 'solid' });

The prefix option is the string you want prepended to each item in the list. Using the example, all items on the list will be returned with solid prepended to them.

perl ( "solidred", "solidorange", "solidyellow", "solidspring", "solidgreen", "solidteal", "solidcyan", "solidazure", "solidblue", "solidviolet", "solidmagenta", "solidpink", "solidwhite", "solidblack", "solidgray", )

suffix

perl my @suffix_array = fancy_open('file_path', { 'suffix' => 'bead; });

The suffix option is the string you want to appear appended to each item in the list. Using the example, all items on the list will be returned with bead appended to them.

perl ( "redbead", "orangebead", "yellowbead", "springbead", "greenbead", "tealbead", "cyanbead", "azurebead", "bluebead", "violetbead", "magentabead", "pinkbead", "whitebead", "blackbead", "graybead", )

prefix and suffix

perl my @both_array = fancy_open('file_path', { 'prefix' => 'solid', 'suffix' => 'bead' });

Using both the prefix and suffix options together will prepend and append the associated strings to the items in the list.

perl ( "solidredbead", "solidorangebead", "solidyellowbead", "solidspringbead", "solidgreenbead", "solidtealbead", "solidcyanbead", "solidazurebead", "solidbluebead", "solidvioletbead", "solidmagentabead", "solidpinkbead", "solidwhitebead", "solidblackbead", "solidgraybead", )

joiner

perl my @joiner_array = fancy_open('file_path', { 'prefix' => 'solid', 'suffix' => 'bead', 'joiner' => ' ' });

The joiner option will add a string between the prefix, the line from the file, and the suffix. In this case, a single space.

perl ( "solid red bead", "solid orange bead", "solid yellow bead", "solid spring bead", "solid green bead", "solid teal bead", "solid cyan bead", "solid azure bead", "solid blue bead", "solid violet bead", "solid magenta bead", "solid pink bead", "solid white bead", "solid black bead", "solid gray bead", )

empty

perl my @empty_line = fancy_open('file_path', { 'empty' => 'fill' });

The empty option has three possible values for what to do with empty lines in the file: fill, blank, or undefined. If empty is not used or is any value than the three listed, the empty line will be ignored.

Sample file contents with an empty line.

``` red orange yellow spring green teal cyan azure

blue violet magenta pink white black gray ```

  • fill will prefix and suffix the value as it does with all other lines.

    perl my @empty_line = fancy_open('file_path', { 'prefix' => 'solid', 'empty' => 'fill' });

    The array returned will be:

    perl ( "solidred", "solidorange", "solidyellow", "solidspring", "solidgreen", "solidteal", "solidcyan", "solidazure", "solid", "solidblue", "solidviolet", "solidmagenta", "solidpink", "solidwhite", "solidblack", "solidgray", )

  • blank will return a zero length but defined value.

    perl my @empty_line = fancy_open('file_path', { 'prefix' => 'solid', 'empty' => 'blank' }); The array returned will be:

    perl ( "solidred", "solidorange", "solidyellow", "solidspring", "solidgreen", "solidteal", "solidcyan", "solidazure", "", "solidblue", "solidviolet", "solidmagenta", "solidpink", "solidwhite", "solidblack", "solidgray", )

  • undefined will return an undefined value.

    perl @empty_line = fancy_open('file_path', { 'prefix' => 'solid', 'empty' => 'undefined' });

    The array returned will be:

    perl ( "solidred", "solidorange", "solidyellow", "solidspring", "solidgreen", "solidteal", "solidcyan", "solidazure", undef, "solidblue", "solidviolet", "solidmagenta", "solidpink", "solidwhite", "solidblack", "solidgray", )

encoding

perl my @encoded_array = fancy_open('file_path', { 'encoding' => 'ascii' });

The encoding option is the encoding you want to use to open the file. The above file will be opened ascii encoded.

App::ansicolumn ANSI sequence aware column command

I made this command to demonstrate Text::ANSI::Printf module, but it is getting to be more interesting tool.

IMAGES

https://github.com/kaz-utashiro/App-ansicolumn/tree/master/images

EXAMPLE

column(1) compatible usage

$ ls -1 --color=always /usr/bin | ansicolumn

$ (printf "PERM LINKS OWNER GROUP SIZE MONTH DAY HH:MM/YEAR NAME\n" ; ls --color=always -l | sed 1d) | ansicolumn -t

Show DOCX document in 3up format

$ cpanm App::optex::textconv
$ optex -Mtextconv ansicolumn -DPC3 foo.docx | less

Show highlighted source code in 2up format

$ source-highlight -f esc -i lib/App/ansicolumn.pm | ansicolumn -PC2 | less

INSTALL

$ cpanm https://github.com/kaz-utashiro/App-ansicolumn.git

Text::ANSI::Printf printf function for string with ANSI sequence

Text::ANSI::Printf is a almost-printf-compatible library with a capability of handling string with ANSI terminal sequences, as well as multi-byte wide characters.

This is just a quick hack using existing modules, Text::VisualPrintf and Text::ANSI::Fold::Util. Not tuned for performance. Most of complicated work is done in Text::ANSI::Fold module.

INSTALL: cpanm https://github.com/kaz-utashiro/Text-ANSI-Printf.git
