NAME

Biber::Output::base - base class for Biber output modules.

new

    Initialize a Biber::Output::base object

set_output_target_file

    Set the output target file of a Biber::Output::base object
    A convenience around set_output_target so we can keep track of the
    filename. Returns an IO::File object for the target

get_output_target_file

  Get the output target file name

set_output_target

    Set the output target of a Biber::Output::base object

set_output_head

    Set the output head of a Biber::Output::base object
    $data could be anything - the caller is expected to know.

set_output_tail

    Set the output tail of a Biber::Output::base object
    $data could be anything - the caller is expected to know.

get_output_head

    Get the output head of a Biber::Output object
    $data could be anything - the caller is expected to know.
    Mainly used in debugging

get_output_tail

    Get the output tail of a Biber::Output object
    $data could be anything - the caller is expected to know.
    Mainly used in debugging

add_output_head

    Add to the head output data of a Biber::Output::base object
    The base class method just does a string append

add_output_tail

    Add to the tail output data of a Biber::Output::base object
    The base class method just does a string append

set_output_section

  Records the section object in the output object
  We need some information from this when writing the output

get_output_section

  Retrieve the output section object

get_output_entries

    Get the sorted order output data for all entries in a list as array ref

get_output_comments

    Get the output comments for tool mode tests

get_output_entry

    Get the output data for a specific entry.
    Used really only in tests as it instantiates list dynamic information so
    we can see it in tests. As a result, we have to NFC() the result to mimic
    real output since UTF-8 output is assumed in most tests.

set_output_entry

    Add an entry output to a Biber::Output::base object
    The base class method just does a dump

create_output_misc

    Create the output for misc bits and pieces like preamble and closing
    macro call and add to output object.

create_output_section

    Create the output from the sections data and push it into the
    output object.

set_output_keyalias

  Set the output for a key which is an alias to another key

set_output_undefkey

  Set the output for an undefined key

output

    Generic base output method
