Autodia::Handler::PHP(3) AutoDia handler for PHP


Autodia::Handler::PHP is registered in the module, which contains a hash of language names and the name of their respective language - in this case:

%language_handlers = ( .. ,                  php => ``Autodia::Handler::PHP'',
                 .. );

%patterns = ( .. ,          php => \%php,

              .. );

my %php = (
             regex      => '\w+\.php$',
             wildcards => [


use Autodia::Handler::PHP;

my $handler = Autodia::Handler::PHP->New(\%Config);

This creates a new handler using the Configuration hash to provide rules selected at the command line.


$handler->Parse(filename); # where filename includes full or relative path.

This parses the named file and returns 1 if successful or 0 if the file could not be opened.

$handler->output(); # any arguments are ignored.

This outputs the output file according to the rules in the %Config hash passed at initialisation of the object and the template.
