Biber::Config(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Biber::Config(3pm)

NAME

Biber::Config - Configuration items which need to be saved across the
lifetime of a Biber object
  This class contains a static object and static methods to access
  configuration and state data. There are several classes of data in here
  which have separate accessors:
  * Biber options
  * Biblatex options
  * State information used by Biber as it processes entries
  * displaymode date

_init

    Reset internal hashes to defaults.

_initopts

    Initialise default options, optionally with config file as argument

config_file

Returns the full path of the Biber configuration file. If returns the first file found among:
"biber.conf" in the current directory
"$HOME/.biber.conf"
"$ENV{XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/biber/biber.conf"
"$HOME/Library/biber/biber.conf" (Mac OSX only)
"$ENV{APPDATA}/biber.conf" (Windows only)
the output of "kpsewhich biber.conf" (if available on the system).
If no file is found, it returns "undef".

get_seen_nameyear

    Get the count of an labelname/labelyear combination for tracking
    extrayear. It uses labelyear plus name as we need to disambiguate
    entries with different labelyear (like differentiating 1984--1986 from
    just 1984)

incr_seen_nameyear

    Increment the count of an labelname/labelyear combination for extrayear
    We pass in the name and year strings separately as we have to
    be careful and only increment this counter beyond 1 if there is
    a name component. Otherwise, extrayear gets defined for all
    entries with no name but the same year etc.

get_seen_nametitle

    Get the count of an labelname/labeltitle combination for tracking
    extratitle.

incr_seen_nametitle

    Increment the count of an labelname/labeltitle combination for extratitle
    We pass in the name and year strings separately as we have to
    be careful and only increment this counter beyond 1 if there is
    a title component. Otherwise, extratitle gets defined for all
    entries with no title.

get_seen_titleyear

    Get the count of an labeltitle/labelyear combination for tracking
    extratitleyear

incr_seen_titleyear

    Increment the count of an labeltitle/labelyear combination for extratitleyear
    We pass in the title and year strings separately as we have to
    be careful and only increment this counter beyond 1 if there is
    a title component. Otherwise, extratitleyear gets defined for all
    entries with no title.

reset_uniquelistcount

    Reset the count for list parts and complete lists

list_differs_nth

    Returns true if some other list differs at passed nth place
    and is at least as long
    list_differs_nth([a, b, c, d, e], 3) = 1

    [a, b, d, e, f]
    [a, b, e, z, z, y]

list_differs_index

    Returns the greatest index at where the list begins to differ from any other list
    Assuming these lists
    [a, b]
    [a, b, d, e, f, g, h, i, j]

    Add a name to the list of name contexts which have the name in it

reset_uniquenamecount

    Reset the list of names which have the name part in it
