NAME
    Parse::AFP - Parser for IBM's Advanced Function Printing document format

VERSION
    This document describes version 0.25 of Parse::AFP, released October 16,
    2010.

SYNOPSIS
        use Parse::AFP;
        my $afp = Parse::AFP->new('input.afp');
        while (my $rec = $afp->next_member) {
            print $rec->dump;
            # ...
            $rec->refresh; # if modified
        }
        $afp->refresh; # if modified
        $afp->write('output.afp');

DESCRIPTION
    This module processes IBM's AFP (Advanced Function Printing) files into
    an object hierarchy; each object may be individually modified, dumped
    into binary, or written back to another AFP file.

    Running the bundled "afpdump.pl" on a AFP file will probably explain
    this module's behaviour better than reading this documentation.

METHODS
    Methods below applies to all objects in the objects hierarchy.

  new
    Constructor. Takes either a filename, or a scalar reference to content.

  dump
    Returns the binary representation of the current object.

  write
    Takes a filename and writes the binary representation to it.

  refresh
    Regenerate binary representation from in-memory data from the object
    itself and its members. Also refreshes all uplevel parents.

  members
    Returns a list of member objects, if any.

  next_member
    Iterator for member objects.

  parent
    Returns the parent of this object, or *undef* if this is the toplevel
    object.

ACCESSORS
    Each class may define additional accessors, in the form of "FieldName"
    and "SetFieldName". There are no accessors for the toplevel Parse::AFP
    object.
