Markdent::Handler::HTMLStream::Document - Turns Markdent events into a complete HTML document


version 0.39


This class takes an event stream and turns it into a complete HTML document.


This role provides the following methods:


This method creates a new handler. It accepts the following parameters:

  • title => $title

    The title of the document. This is required.

  • charset => $charset

    If provided, a "<meta charset="...">" tag will be added to the document's "<head>".

  • language => $language

    If provided, a "lang" attribute will be added to the document's "<html>" tag.

  • output => $fh

    The file handle or object to which HTML output will be streamed. If you want to capture the output in a string, you can open a filehandle to a string:

      my $buffer = q{};
      open my $fh, '>', \$buffer;

    If you pass a file handle (or IO::Handle object), then all calls to "print()" will be checked, and an error will be thrown.

    You can pass an object of any other class, it must implement its own "print()" method, and error handling is left up to this method.


This class does the Markdent::Role::HTMLStream, Markdent::Role::EventsAsMethods, and Markdent::Role::Handler roles.
