erlang-ltsv

https://api.travis-ci.org/shirou/erlang-ltsv.png

erlang-ltsv is a Labeled Tab-separated Values (LTSV) format parser for erlang.

API

  • parse(binary() | string()) -> [[{binary(), binary()}]].

    parse LTSV format lines.

  • parse_line(binary()) -> [{binary(), binary()}].

    parse one line.

  • parse_file(string()) -> [[{binary(), binary()}]].

    parse specified file.

  • to_binary([[{binary(), binary()}]]) -> binary().

    convert a list of {Label, Field} to a binary.

  • to_list([[{binary(), binary()}]) -> list().

    convert a list of {Label, Field} to a list.

  • get_fields(binary() | list(), binary()) -> list().

    returns a list of specified key.

Note

Other languages LTSV parser parse LTSV to a dictionary. However, erlang dictionaly is not so fast, this implementation parse to a list of tuple.

For example,

"L1:F1\tL2:F2" -> [{<<"L1">>,<<"F1">>}, {<<"L2">>,<<"F2">>}]

Since that, if labels are duplicated, all of these are stored in the returned list.

"L1:F1\tL1:F2" -> [{<<"L1">>,<<"F1">>}, {<<"L1">>,<<"F2">>}]

Other implementation may store only one like this.

(python implementation)
"L1:F1\tL1:F2" -> {"L1" : "F2"}

Example

%% parse LTSV format binary.
> ltsv:parse("a:b\t1:2\na:b\t1:2").
  [[{<<"a">>,<<"b">>},{<<"1">>,<<"2">>}],
  [{<<"a">>,<<"b">>},{<<"1">>,<<"2">>}]]

%% parse multiple LTSV format lines.
> ltsv:parse(<<"a:b\t1:2\na:b\t1:2">>).
  [[{<<"a">>,<<"b">>},{<<"1">>,<<"2">>}],
  [{<<"a">>,<<"b">>},{<<"1">>,<<"2">>}]]

%% parse one line.
> ltsv:parse_line("host:127.0.0.1\tident:-\tuser:frank\ttime:[10/Oct/2000:13:55:36-0700]\treq:GET").
  [{<<"host">>,<<"127.0.0.1">>},
   {<<"ident">>,<<"-">>},
   {<<"user">>,<<"frank">>},
   {<<"time">>,<<"[10/Oct/2000:13:55:36-0700]">>},
   {<<"req">>,<<"GET">>}]

%% parse from file
> ltsv:parse_file("some_file.tsv").
  [{<<"somelabel">>,<<"somevalue">>}]

----------------------------------------------------
%% convert a LTSV format data to binary
> ltsv:to_binary([#{<<"1">> => <<"a">>, <<"2">> => <<"bb">>, <<"3">> => <<"d:e">>},
                  #{<<"1">> => <<"a">>, <<"2">> => <<"bb">>, <<"3">> => <<"d:e">>}]).
  <<"1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e\n1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e">>

> ltsv:to_binary([[{<<"1">>,<<"a">>},{<<"2">>,<<"bb">>},{<<"3">>,<<"d:e">>}],
                  [{<<"1">>,<<"a">>},{<<"2">>,<<"bb">>},{<<"3">>,<<"d:e">>}]]).
  <<"1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e\n1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e">>

%% convert a LTSV format data to list
> ltsv:to_list([#{<<"1">> => <<"a">>, <<"2">> => <<"bb">>, <<"3">> => <<"d:e">>},
                #{<<"1">> => <<"a">>, <<"2">> => <<"bb">>, <<"3">> => <<"d:e">>}]).
  [<<"1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e">>,<<"1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e">>]

> ltsv:to_list([[{<<"1">>,<<"a">>},{<<"2">>,<<"bb">>},{<<"3">>,<<"d:e">>}],
                [{<<"1">>,<<"a">>},{<<"2">>,<<"bb">>},{<<"3">>,<<"d:e">>}]]).
  [<<"1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e">>,<<"1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e">>]

----------------------------------------------------
%% get a list of specified key
> ltsv:get_fields(ltsv:parse("1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e\n1:a\t2:bb\t3:d:e"), <<"2">>).
  [<<"bb">>,<<"bb">>]
