Term::Size::Any(3) Retrieve terminal size

SYNOPSIS


# the traditional way
use Term::Size::Any qw( chars pixels );
($columns, $rows) = chars *STDOUT{IO};
($x, $y) = pixels;

DESCRIPTION

This is a unified interface to retrieve terminal size. It loads one module of a list of known alternatives, each implementing some way to get the desired terminal information. This loaded module will actually do the job on behalf of "Term::Size::Any".

Thus, "Term::Size::Any" depends on the availability of one of these modules:

    Term::Size           (soon to be supported)
    Term::Size::Perl
    Term::Size::ReadKey  (soon to be supported)
    Term::Size::Win32

This release fallbacks to Term::Size::Win32 if running in Windows 32 systems. For other platforms, it uses the first of Term::Size::Perl, Term::Size or Term::Size::ReadKey which loads successfully. (To be honest, I disabled the fallback to Term::Size and Term::Size::ReadKey which are buggy by now.)

FUNCTIONS

The traditional interface is by importing functions "chars" and "pixels" into the caller's space.
chars
    ($columns, $rows) = chars($h);
    $columns = chars($h);

"chars" returns the terminal size in units of characters corresponding to the given filehandle $h. If the argument is omitted, *STDIN{IO} is used. In scalar context, it returns the terminal width.

pixels
    ($x, $y) = pixels($h);
    $x = pixels($h);

"pixels" returns the terminal size in units of pixels corresponding to the given filehandle $h. If the argument is omitted, *STDIN{IO} is used. In scalar context, it returns the terminal width.

Many systems with character-only terminals will return "(0, 0)".
