NAME

Search::Dict - look - search for key in dictionary file 

SYNOPSIS

    use Search::Dict;    look *FILEHANDLE, $key, $dict, $fold;    use Search::Dict;    look *FILEHANDLE, $params;
 

DESCRIPTION

Sets file position in FILEHANDLE to be first line greater than or equal(stringwise) to $key. Returns the new file position, or -1 if an erroroccurs.

The flags specify dictionary order and case folding:

If $dict is true, search by dictionary order (ignore anything but wordcharacters and whitespace). The default is honour all characters.

If $fold is true, ignore case. The default is to honour case.

If there are only three arguments and the third argument is a hashreference, the keys of that hash can have values "dict", "fold", and"comp" or "xfrm" (see below), and their corresponding values will beused as the parameters.

If a comparison subroutine (comp) is defined, it must return less than zero,zero, or greater than zero, if the first comparand is less than,equal, or greater than the second comparand.

If a transformation subroutine (xfrm) is defined, its value is used totransform the lines read from the filehandle before their comparison.
