Biber::Input::file::bibtex - look in a BibTeX file for an entry and create it if

Biber::Input::file::bibtex(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Biber::Input::file::bibtex(3pm)

init_cache

    Invalidate the T::B object cache. Used only in tests when e.g. we change the encoding
    settings and therefore must force a re-read of the data

TBSIG

     Signal handler to catch fatal Text::BibTex SEGFAULTS. It has bugs
     and we want to say at least something if it coredumps

extract_entries

   Main data extraction routine.
   Accepts a data source identifier, preprocesses the file and then
   looks for the passed keys, creating entries when it finds them and
   passes out an array of keys it didn't find.

create_entry

   Create a Biber::Entry object from a Text::BibTeX object
   Be careful in here, all T::B set methods are UTF-8/NFC boundaries
   so be careful to encode(NFC()) on calls. Windows won't handle UTF-8
   in T::B btparse gracefully and will die.

cache_data

   Caches file data into T::B objects indexed by the original
   datasource key, decoded into UTF8

preprocess_file

   Convert file to UTF-8 and potentially decode LaTeX macros to UTF-8

parsename

    Given a name string, this function returns a Biber::Entry::Name object
    with all parts of the name resolved according to the BibTeX conventions.
    parsename('John Doe')
    returns an object which internally looks a bit like this:
    { given          => {string => 'John', initial => ['J']},
      family         => {string => 'Doe', initial => ['D']},
      prefix         => {string => undef, initial => undef},
      suffix         => {string => undef, initial => undef},
      basenamestring => 'Doe',
      namestring     => 'Doe, John',
      nameinitstring => 'Doe_J',
      strip          => {'given'  => 0,
                         'family' => 0,
                         'prefix' => 0,
                         'suffix' => 0}
      }

parsename_x

    Given a name string in extended format, this function returns a Biber::Entry::Name object
    with all parts of the name resolved according to the BibTeX conventions.
    parsename_x('given=John, family=Doe')
    returns an object which internally looks a bit like this:
    { given          => {string => 'John', initial => ['J']},
      family         => {string => 'Doe', initial => ['D']},
      prefix         => {string => undef, initial => undef},
      suffix         => {string => undef, initial => undef},
      basenamestring => 'Doe',
      namestring     => 'Doe, John',
      nameinitstring => 'Doe_J',
      sortnamekeyscheme => 'scheme' }
      }
