      • CharacterMap

        public CharacterMap​(StructuredQName name,
                            IntHashMap<java.lang.String> map)
        Create a CharacterMap from a raw map of integers to strings
        name - the name of the CharacterMap
        map - the mapping of integer Unicode character codes to strings. This must not be subsequently changed.
      • CharacterMap

        public CharacterMap​(java.lang.Iterable<CharacterMap> list)
        Create a CharacterMap that combines a set of existing character maps.
        list - the list of existing character maps. If the same character is mapped by more than one map in the list, the last mapping takes precedence
    • Method Detail

      • getName

        public StructuredQName getName()
        Get the name of the character map
        the name given in the stylesheet if this is an un-expanded character map, or null if this is an expanded map (a map combined with the character maps that it references)
      • getMap

        public IntHashMap<java.lang.String> getMap()
        Get the contents of the character map
        the character map, as a map from integer codepoints to strings
      • map

        public UnicodeString map​(UnicodeString in,
                                 boolean insertNulls)
        Expand all the characters in a string using this character mapping
        in - the input string to be mapped
        insertNulls - true if null (0) characters are to be inserted before and after replacement characters. This is done to signal that output escaping of these characters is disabled. The flag is set to true when writing XML or HTML, but to false when writing TEXT.
        a string with all characters expanded
      • export

        public void export​(ExpressionPresenter out)
        Write the character map to an export file
        out - the output destination
