STAR::Dictionary - Perl extension for handling dictionaries that were parsed from STAR compliant files.
This documentation refers to version 0.56 of this module.
$dict_obj = STAR::Dictionary->new(-file=>$file); @items_in_dict = $dict_obj->get_save_blocks;
This package contains class and object methods for Dictionary objects created by STAR::Parser. This class is a sub class of STAR::DataBlock. It supports all methods from STAR::DataBlock (see related documentation), as well as the additional method get_save_blocks.
Usage: @save_blocks = $dict_obj->get_save_blocks;
This methods returns an array with all save_ blocks found in the Dictionary
object. Each item defined in the dictionary is described within a save block.
In addition, items pertaining to the dictionary itself (such as
_dictionary.version) are found outside of save blocks in the dictionary file.
In the data structure of a Dictionary object, these items are gathered
$s='-' save block.
