NAME

       String::ToIdentifier::EN - Convert Strings to English Program Identifiers

SYNOPSIS

           use utf8;
           use String::ToIdentifier::EN 'to_identifier';

           to_identifier 'foo-bar';             # fooDashBar
           to_identifier 'foo-bar', '_';        # foo_dash_bar
           to_identifier 'foo.bar', '_';        # foo_dot_bar
           to_identifier "foo\x{4EB0}bar";      # fooJingBar
           to_identifier "foo\x00bar";          # fooNullCharBar
           to_identifier "foo\x00\x00bar";      # foo2NullCharsBar
           to_identifier "foo\x00\x00bar", '_'; # foo_2_null_chars_bar

           {
               no utf8;
               to_identifier "foo\xFF\xFFbar.baz";      # foo_2_0xFF_BarDotBaz
               to_identifier "foo\xFF\xFFbar.baz", '_'; # foo_2_0xFF_bar_dot_baz
           }

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides a utility method, "to_identifier" for converting an arbitrary string
       into a readable representation using the ASCII subset of "\w" for use as an identifier in
       a computer program. The intent is to make unique identifier names from which the content
       of the original string can be easily inferred by a human just by reading the identifier.

       If you need the full set of "\w" including Unicode, see the subclass
       String::ToIdentifier::EN::Unicode.

       Currently, this process is one way only, and will likely remain this way.

       The default is to create camelCase identifiers, or you may pass in a separator char of
       your choice such as "_".

       Binary char groups will be separated by "_" even in camelCase identifiers to make them
       easier to read, e.g.: "foo_2_0xFF_Bar".

EXPORT

       Optionally exports the "to_identifier" function.

SUBROUTINES

   to_identifier
       Takes the string to be converted to an identifier, and optionally a separator char such as
       "_". If a separator char is not provided, a camelCase identifier will be returned.

METHODS

   string_to_identifier
       The class method version of "to_identifier", if you want to use the object oriented
       interface.
