NAME

Term::Size::Perl - Perl extension for retrieving terminal size (Perl version)  

SYNOPSIS

    use Term::Size::Perl;

    ($columns, $rows) = Term::Size::Perl::chars *STDOUT{IO};
    ($x, $y) = Term::Size::Perl::pixels;

 

DESCRIPTION

Yet another implementation of "Term::Size". Now in pure Perl, with the exception of a C probe run on build time.  

FUNCTIONS

chars
    ($columns, $rows) = chars($h);
    $columns = chars($h);

"chars" returns the terminal size in units of characters corresponding to the given filehandle $h. If the argument is omitted, *STDIN{IO} is used. In scalar context, it returns the terminal width.

pixels
    ($x, $y) = pixels($h);
    $x = pixels($h);

"pixels" returns the terminal size in units of pixels corresponding to the given filehandle $h. If the argument is omitted, *STDIN{IO} is used. In scalar context, it returns the terminal width.

Many systems with character-only terminals will return "(0, 0)".
