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

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

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 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.

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

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

Partially parse the .bib datasource and latex_decode the data contents.
We do this because latex_decoding the entire buffer is difficult since
such decoding is regexp based and since braces are used to protect data in
.bib files, it makes it hard to do some parsing.

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', 'author', 'key')
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},
  id             => 32RS0Wuj0P,
  strip          => {'given'  => 0,
                     'family' => 0,
                     'prefix' => 0,
                     'suffix' => 0}
  }

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},
  id             => 32RS0Wuj0P,
  sortingnamekeytemplatename => 'template name',
}

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

Provides the extract_entries() method to get entries from a BibTeX data source and instantiate Biber::Entry objects for what it finds
