NAME

Biber::Section - Biber::Section objects

new

    Initialize a Biber::Section object

reset_caches

    Reset section caches which need it

set_keytods

  Save information about citekey->datasource name mapping. Used for error reporting.

get_keytods

  Get information about citekey->datasource name mapping. Used for error reporting.

has_badcasekey

    Returns a value to say if we've seen a key differing only in case before
    <previouskey>  - we've seen a differently cased variant of this key so we can warn about this
    undef  - Not seen this key at all in any case variant before
    Record that a key is used as a related entry
    Check if a key is used as a related entry key

keytorelclone

    Record a key<->clone key mapping.

get_keytorelclone

    Fetch a related entry clone key, given a cite key

get_relclonetokey

    Fetch a related entry key, given a clone key

has_keytorelclone

    Return boolean saying if a cite key has a related entry clone in the current section

has_relclonetokey

    Return boolean saying if a related clone key has a citekey in the current section

add_everykey

    Adds a datasource key to the section list of all datasource keys

del_everykeys

  Delete everykey cache. For use in tests.

has_everykey

    Returns a boolean to say if we've seen a key in any datasource for this section.
    This used to be an array ref which was checked using first() and it
    was twenty times slower.

set_allkeys

    Sets flag to say citekey '*' occurred in citekeys
    We allow setting it to false too because it's useful in tests

is_allkeys

    Checks flag which says citekey '*' occurred in citekeys

bibentry

    Returns a Biber::Entry object for the given citation key
    Understands citekey aliases

bibentries

    Return Biber::Entries object for this section

del_bibentries

    Delete all Biber::Entry objects from the Biber::Section object

set_citekeys

    Sets the citekeys in a Biber::Section object

set_orig_order_citekeys

    Sets the original order of citekeys in a Biber::Section object

get_citekeys

    Gets the citekeys of a Biber::Section object
    Returns a normal array

get_static_citekeys

    Gets the citekeys of a Biber::Section object
    excluding dynamic set entry keys
    Returns a normal array

add_undef_citekey

    Adds a citekey to the Biber::Section object as an undefined
    key. This allows us to output this information to the .bbl and
    so biblatex can do better reporting to external utils like latexmk

get_undef_citekeys

    Gets the list of undefined citekeys of a Biber::Section object
    Returns a normal array

get_orig_order_citekeys

    Gets the citekeys of a Biber::Section object in their original order
    This is just to ensure we have a method that will return this, just in
    case we mess about with the order at some point. This is needed by
    citeorder sorting.

has_citekey

    Returns true when $key is in the Biber::Section object
    Understands key alaises

del_citekey

    Deletes a citekey from a Biber::Section object

del_citekeys

    Deletes all citekeys from a Biber::Section object

add_citekeys

    Adds citekeys to the Biber::Section object

set_citekey_alias

    Set citekey alias information

get_citekey_alias

    Get citekey alias information

del_citekey_alias

    Delete citekey alias

get_citekey_aliases

    Get a list of all citekey aliases for the section

set_labelcache_v

    Sets the variable label disambiguation cache for a field

get_labelcache_v

    Gets the variable label disambiguation cache for a field

set_labelcache_l

    Sets the list label disambiguation cache for a field

get_labelcache_l

    Gets the list label disambiguation cache for a field

is_dynamic_set

    Test if a key is a dynamic set

set_dynamic_set

    Record a mapping of dynamic key to member keys

get_dynamic_set

    Retrieve member keys for a dynamic set key
    Check that reference returning anything to stop spurious warnings
    about empty dereference in return.

dynamic_set_keys

    Retrieve all dynamic set keys

has_dynamic_sets

    Returns true of false depending on whether the section has any dynamic set keys

add_datasource

    Adds a data source to a section

set_datasources

    Sets the data sources for a section

get_datasources

    Gets an array of data sources for this section

add_sort_cache

    Adds a scheme/keys pair to the sort cache:
    [$scheme, $keys, $sortinitdata, $extraalphadata, $extrayeardata ]

get_sort_cache

    Retrieves the sort cache

number

    Gets the section number of a Biber::Section object
