NAME

       String::Elide::Parts - Elide a string with multiple parts of different priorities

VERSION

       This document describes version 0.07 of String::Elide::Parts (from Perl distribution
       String-Elide-Parts), released on 2017-01-29.

SYNOPSIS

        use String::Elide::Parts qw(elide);

       Eliding string with no parts:

        my $text = "this is your brain";
        #                                            0----5---10---15---20
        elide($text, 16);                       # -> "this is your ..."
        elide($text, 16, {truncate=>"left"});   # -> "...is your brain"
        elide($text, 16, {truncate=>"middle"}); # -> "this is... brain"
        elide($text, 16, {truncate=>"ends"});   # -> "... is your b..."

        elide($text, 16, {marker=>"--"});       # -> "this is your b--"

       Eliding string with multiple parts marked with markup. We want to elide URL first
       (prio=3), then the "Downloading" text (prio=2), then the speed (prio=1, default):

        $text = "<elspan prio=2>Downloading</elspan> <elspan prio=3 truncate=middle>http://www.example.com/somefile</elspan> 320.0k/5.5M";
        #                      0----5---10---15---20---25---30---35---40---45---50---55---60
        elide($text, 56); # -> "Downloading http://www.example.com/somefile 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 55); # -> "Downloading http://www.example.com/somefile 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 50); # -> "Downloading http://www.e..com/somefile 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 45); # -> "Downloading http://ww..m/somefile 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 40); # -> "Downloading http://..omefile 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 35); # -> "Downloading http..efile 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 30); # -> "Downloading ht..le 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 25); # -> "Downloading . 320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 24); # -> "Downloading  320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 23); # -> "Download..  320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 20); # -> "Downl..  320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 15); # -> "..  320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 13); # -> "  320.0k/5.5M"
        elide($text, 10); # -> " 320.0k/.."
        elide($text,  5); # -> " 32.."
        #                      0----5---10---15---20---25---30---35---40---45---50---55---60

DESCRIPTION

       String::Elide::Parts is similar to other string eliding modules, with one main difference:
       it accepts string marked with parts of different priorities. The goal is to retain more
       important information as much as possible when length is reduced.

FUNCTIONS

   elide($str, $len[, \%opts]) => str
       Elide a string if length exceeds $len.

       String can be marked with "<elspan prio=N truncate=T marker=M>...</elspan>" so there can
       be multiple parts with different priorities and truncate direction.  The default priority
       is 1. You can mark less important strings with higher priority to let it be elided first.
       The markup will be removed from the string before eliding.

       Known options:

       ·   marker => str (default: '..')

       ·   truncate => 'left'|'middle'|'middle'|'ends' (default: 'right')

       ·   default_prio => int (default: 1)

SEE ALSO

   Similar elide modules
       Text::Elide is simple, does not have many options, and elides at word boundaries.

       String::Truncate has similar interface like String::Elide::Parts and has some options.

       String::Elide::Lines is based on this module but works on a line-basis.
