new

    Initialize a Biber::DataModel object

constants

    Returns array ref of constant names

get_constant_type

    Returns a constant type

get_constant_value

    Returns a constant value

fieldtypes

    Returns array ref of legal fieldtypes

datatypes

    Returns array ref of legal datatypes

is_field

    Returns boolean to say if a field is a legal field.
    Allows for fields with meta markers whose marked field should be in
    the datamodel.

entrytypes

    Returns array ref of legal entrytypes

is_entrytype

    Returns boolean to say if an entrytype is a legal entrytype

is_field_for_entrytype

    Returns boolean to say if a field is legal for an entrytype

entrytype_is_skipout

    Returns boolean depending on whether an entrytype is to be skipped on output

get_fields_of_fieldtype

    Retrieve fields of a certain biblatex fieldtype from data model
    Return in sorted order so that bbl order doesn't change when changing
    .bcf. This really messes up tests otherwise.

get_fields_of_fieldformat

    Retrieve fields of a certain format from data model
    Return in sorted order so that bbl order doesn't change when changing
    .bcf. This really messes up tests otherwise.

get_fields_of_datatype

    Retrieve fields of a certain biblatex datatype from data model
    Return in sorted order so that bbl order doesn't change when changing
    .bcf. This really messes up tests otherwise.

get_fields_of_type

    Retrieve fields of a certain biblatex type from data model
    Return in sorted order so that bbl order doesn't change when changing
    .bcf. This really messes up tests otherwise.

is_fields_of_type

  Returns boolean to say if the given fieldtype/datatype/format is a valid combination

get_fieldtype

    Returns the fieldtype of a field

get_datatype

    Returns the datatype of a field

get_fieldformat

    Returns the format of a field

get_dm_for_field

    Returns the fieldtype, datatype and format of a field

field_is_fieldtype

    Returns boolean depending on whether a field is a certain biblatex fieldtype

field_is_datatype

    Returns boolean depending on whether a field is a certain biblatex datatype

field_is_type

    Returns boolean depending on whether a field is a certain biblatex fieldtype
    and datatype

field_is_nullok

    Returns boolean depending on whether a field is ok to be null

field_is_skipout

    Returns boolean depending on whether a field is to be skipped on output

check_mandatory_constraints

    Checks constraints of type "mandatory" on entry and
    returns an arry of warnings, if any

check_conditional_constraints

    Checks constraints of type "conditional" on entry and
    returns an arry of warnings, if any

check_data_constraints

    Checks constraints of type "data" on entry and
    returns an array of warnings, if any

dump

    Dump Biber::DataModel object

generate_bltxml_schema

    Generate a RelaxNG XML schema from the datamodel for BibLaTeXML datasources

generate_bblxml_schema

    Generate a RelaxNG XML schema from the datamodel for bblXML output
