RDF::vCard::Entity - represents a single vCard


Instances of this class correspond to individual vCard objects, though it could potentially be used as basis for other RFC 2425-based formats such as iCalendar. Constructor · "new(%options)" Returns a new RDF::vCard::Entity object. The only option worth worrying about is profile which sets the profile for the entity. This defaults to "VCARD". RDF::vCard::Entity overloads stringification, so you can do the following: my $vcard = RDF::vCard::Entity->new; print $vcard if $vcard =~ /VCARD/i; Methods · "to_string()" Formats the object according to RFC 2425 and RFC 2426. · "to_jcard()" Formats the object according to <>. to_jcard(1) will return the same data but without the JSON stringification. · "add_to_model($model)" Given an RDF::Trine::Model, adds triples to the model for this entity. · "node()" Returns an RDF::Trine::Node::Blank identifying this entity. · "entity_order()" Returns a string along the lines of "Surname;Forename" useful for sorting a list of entities. · "profile()" Returns the entity type - e.g. "VCARD". · "lines()" Returns an arrayref of RDF::vCard::Line objects in the order they were originally added. This excludes the "BEGIN:VCARD" and "END:VCARD" lines. · "add($line)" Add a RDF::vCard::Line. · "get($property)" Returns a list of RDF::vCard::Line objects for the given property. e.g. print "It has an address!\n" if ($vcard->get('ADR')); · "matches($property, $regexp)" Checks to see if a property's value matches a regular expression. print "In London\n" if $vcard->matches(ADR => /London/); · "add_component($thing)" Adds a nested entity within this one. This method is unused for vCard, but is a hook for the benefit of RDF::iCalendar. · "components" Lists nested entities within this one.
