NAME

Locale::Po4a::Text - convert text documents from/to PO files  

DESCRIPTION

The po4a (PO for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and more interestingly, the maintenance of translations) using gettext tools on areas where they were not expected like documentation.

Locale::Po4a::Text is a module to help the translation of text documents into other [human] languages.

Paragraphs are split on empty lines (or lines containing only spaces or tabulations).

If a paragraph contains a line starting by a space (or tabulation), this paragraph won't be rewrapped.  

OPTIONS ACCEPTED BY THIS MODULE

These are this module's particular options:
keyvalue
Treat paragraphs that look like a key value pair as verbatim (with the no-wrap flag in the PO file). Key value pairs are defined as a line containing one or more non-colon and non-space characters followed by a colon followed by at least one non-space character before the end of the line.
nobullets
Deactivate detection of bullets.

By default, when a bullet is detected, the bullet paragraph is not considered as a verbatim paragraph (with the no-wrap flag in the PO file), but the module rewraps this paragraph in the generated PO file and in the translation.

tabs=mode
Specify how tabulations shall be handled. The mode can be any of:
split
Lines with tabulations introduce breaks in the current paragraph.
verbatim
Paragraph containing tabulations will not be re-wrapped.

By default, tabulations are considered as spaces.

breaks=regex
A regular expression matching lines which introduce breaks. The regular expression will be anchored so that the whole line must match.
debianchangelog
Handle the header and footer of released versions, which only contain non translatable informations.
fortunes
Handle the fortunes format, which separate fortunes with a line which consists in '%' or '%%', and use '%%' as the beginning of a comment.
markdown
Handle some special markup in Markdown-formatted texts.
asciidoc
Handle documents in the AsciiDoc format.
control[=taglist]
Handle control files. A comma-separated list of tags to be translated can be provided.
neverwrap
Prevent po4a from wrapping lines.
