Text::Abbrev

See the current Perl documentation for Text::Abbrev.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


abbrev - create an abbreviation table from a list



    use Text::Abbrev;
    abbrev $hashref, LIST



Stores all unambiguous truncations of each element of LIST as keys key in the associative array referenced to by $hashref. The values are the original list elements.


EXAMPLE

    $hashref = abbrev qw(list edit send abort gripe);

    %hash = abbrev qw(list edit send abort gripe);

    abbrev $hashref, qw(list edit send abort gripe);

    abbrev(*hash, qw(list edit send abort gripe));
