STAR::Filter - Perl extension for filtering DataBlock objects
This documentation refers to version 0.01 of this module.
Contains the filter object for filtering DataBlock objects. DataBlock objects are created by Parser and modified by DataBlock.
Usage: $filtered_dict = STAR::Filter->filter_dict( -dict=>$dict, -options=>$options);
A (very simplistic) interactive method for filtering a STAR::Dictionary object (.cob file). The user is prompted for each category whether to include (retain) it in the filtered object. The method returns a reference to the filtered (reduced) STAR::Dictionary object.
Note: This method is preliminary and subject to change.
Usage: $filtered_data = STAR::Filter->filter_through_dict( -data=>$data, -dict=>$dict, -options=>$options);
Filters an STAR::DataBlock object through a STAR::Dictionary object. Returns a reference to a new STAR::DataBlock object in which only those items are included which were defined in the specified dictionary.
