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

Initialize a Biber::Output::base object

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 the output target file name

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Retrieve the output section object

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

Get the output macros for tool mode tests

Get the output comments for tool mode tests

Clear the output macros

Clear the output comments

Get the output data for a specific entry.

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

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

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