[EP-tech] Re: How to add functions for use in citations ?

Hi Gilles,
Yes - you can do this!
If you're just adding a new method, it's not too problematic.
If you look at: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Tips_to_write_plugins, the first code example is basically what you need.

This: http://files.eprints.org/773/ has a good example in it (perl_lib\EPrints\Script\Kultur.pm) that adds methods to EPrints::Script::Compiled.

If you Google for 'site:bazaar.eprints.org Compiled' you'll see other examples of exactly what you want to do.

If you're trying to overwrite a method it's abit more messy, especially if you have multiple archives running under one EPrints install, and they need different things...

Subject: [EP-tech] How to add functions for use in citations ?


I would like to add a function to work on varaibles in citations (like 
the ones in perl_lib/EPrints/Script/Compiled.pm).
I have already written the one we need... (basically it changes 
occurrences of #...# in titles or abstracts to italics)

I have added a :
     sub run_crd_make_ital { ... }
in perl_lib/EPrints/Script/Compiled.pm.

It works, but I don't like modifying core files.

Is it possible to do something like what we do for Plugins :  write a 
module in archives/ID/plugins/EPrints/Scripts/... and make it extend the 
core module ?
I tried a few things but none worked.

Do you have any idea about the right way to do it ?
