Biber::DataModel(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Biber::DataModel(3)

Biber::DataModel - Biber::DataModel objects

Initialize a Biber::DataModel object
We are passing in an array of datamodels as there may be more than one in tool
mode - the one from biber-tool.conf and modifications in a user .conf
We first merge these before extracting data. In case of conflicts, user .conf
datamodel takes precedence.

Returns the original datamodel field/entrytype case for output

Returns array ref of constant names

Returns a constant type

Returns a constant value

Returns boolean to say if a field is a multiscript field

Returns array ref of legal fieldtypes

Returns array ref of legal datatypes

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.

Returns array ref of legal entrytypes

Returns boolean to say if an entrytype is a legal entrytype

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Returns the fieldtype of a field

Returns the datatype of a field

Returns the format of a field

Returns the fieldtype, datatype and format of a field

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Checks datatypes of fields against fields. These are not explicit constraints
in the datamodel but rather checks of the datatype of fields in the datamodel.
