XHTML::MediaWiki - Translate Wiki markup into xhtml
use XHTML::MediaWiki;
my $mediawiki = XHTML::MediaWiki->new( link_path => "" );
my $xhtm = $mediawiki->format($text);
DESCRIPTION and its sister projects use the PHP Mediawiki
to format their pages. This module attempts to duplicate the Mediawiki
formatting rules. Those formatting rules can be simple and easy to use,
while providing more advanced options for the power user.
* new( link_path => 'base path' )
Create a new XHTML:;MediaWiki object. `link_path' is used as the
base for hyperlinks.
* format()
The format method is the only method that needs to be called for the
normal operation of this object. You call format() with the raw
*wikitext* and it returns the xhtml representation of that
* reset_counters()
Call this method to reset the footnote counter.
Overridable Methods
The following methods can be overridden to change the functionality of
the object.
* get_block()
If you would like to override the Block objects you can override
this method.
* encode()
You can override the encode function if you would like to change
what is encoded. Currently only &, <, and > are encoded.
* emphasized()
emphasized controls the output of "<em>" tags.
* link()
The link method is often overridden to modify the display and
operation of links.
link takes 3 arguments the Link, any extra_text, and the type of the
The type is true for footnotes.
* find_links()
The `find_links' method is also often overridden in order to change
the way links are detected.
* template_text()
Override this method to control the text that is generated for an
unknown template ({{word}}).
* format_line()
Override this method to extend or modify line level parsing.
This module is derived from Text::WikiFormat, written by chromatic.
