File::LocalizeNewlines - Localize the newlines for one or more files
For people that routinely work with a mixture of different platforms
that have conflicting newline formats (mainly *NIX and Win32) there are
a number of different situations that can result in files having their
newlines get corrupted.
File::LocalizeNewlines provides a mechanism for one off or bulk
detection and conversion of these files to the newline style for the
The module implements the conversion using a standard "universal line
seperator" regex, which ensures that files with any of the different
newlines, plus a couple of common "broken" newlines, including multiple
different types mixed in the same file, are all converted to the local
platform's newline style.
new param => value, ...
The "new" constructor creates a new conversion object.
By default, the conversion object will process all files and convert
them to the local platform's newline format.
Takes some optional parameters
filter => File::Find::Rule
The "filter" param allows you to provide an instantiate
File::Find::Rule object, that will used to determine the list of
files to check or process.
newline => $newline
The "newline" option allows you to provide an alternative newline
format to the local one. The newline format should be provided as a
For example, to force Win32 newlines, you would use
my $Object = File::LocalizeNewlines->new( newline => "\015\012" );
verbose => 1
The "verbose" option will cause the "File::LocalizeNewlines" object
to print status information to "STDOUT" as it runs.
Returns a new "File::LocalizeNewlines" object.
The "Find" accessor returns the File::Find::Rule object that will be
used for the file search.
The "newline" accessor returns the newline format that will be used in
the localisation process.
The "localized" method takes an argument of a single file name or file
handle and tests it to see it is localized correctly.
Returns true if localized correctly, false if not, or "undef" on error.
The "find" method takes the path for a dir (or file) and returns a list
of relative files names for all of the files that do not have their
newlines correctly localized.
Returns a list of file names, or the null list if there are no files, or
if an incorrect path was provided.
localize $file | $dir
The "localize" method takes a file, file handle or directory as argument
and localizes the newlines of the file, or all files within the
directory (that match the filter if one was provided).
Returns the number of files that were localized, zero if no files needed
to be localized, or "undef" on error.
