/**
 * <p>A helper class for printing indented text. This can be used stand-alone or, more commonly, from Builders.

* * <p>By default, a PrintWriter to System.out is used as the Writer, but it is possible * to change the Writer by passing a new one as a constructor argument.</p> * * <p>Indention by default is 2 characters but can be changed by passing a * different value as a constructor argument.</p> * * <p>The following is an example usage. Note that within a "with" block you need to * specify a parameter name so that this.println is not called instead of IndentPrinter.println: </p> * <pre> * new IndentPrinter(new PrintWriter(out)).with { p -> * p.printIndent() * p.println('parent1') * p.incrementIndent() * p.printIndent() * p.println('child 1') * p.printIndent() * p.println('child 2') * p.decrementIndent() * p.printIndent() * p.println('parent2') * p.flush() * } * </pre> * <p>The above example prints this to standard output:

* <pre> * parent1 * child 1 * child 2 * parent2 * </pre> * @author <a href="mailto:james@coredevelopers.net">James Strachan */ public class IndentPrinter { private int indentLevel; private String indent; private Writer out; private final boolean addNewlines; /** * Creates an IndentPrinter backed by a PrintWriter pointing to System.out, with an indent of two spaces. * * @see #IndentPrinter(Writer, String) */ public IndentPrinter() { this(new PrintWriter(System.out), " "); } /** * Creates an IndentPrinter backed by the supplied Writer, with an indent of two spaces. * * @param out Writer to output to * @see #IndentPrinter(Writer, String) */ public IndentPrinter(Writer out) { this(out, " "); } /** * Creates an IndentPrinter backed by the supplied Writer, * with a user-supplied String to be used for indenting. * * @param out Writer to output to * @param indent character(s) used to indent each line */ public IndentPrinter(Writer out, String indent) { this(out, indent, true); } /** * Creates an IndentPrinter backed by the supplied Writer, * with a user-supplied String to be used for indenting * and the ability to override newline handling. * * @param out Writer to output to * @param indent character(s) used to indent each line * @param addNewlines set to false to gobble all new lines (default true) */ public IndentPrinter(Writer out, String indent, boolean addNewlines) { this.addNewlines = addNewlines; if (out == null) { throw new IllegalArgumentException("Must specify a Writer"); } this.out = out; this.indent = indent; } /** * Prints a string followed by an end of line character. * * @param text String to be written */ public void println(String text) { try { out.write(text); println(); } catch(IOException ioe) { throw new GroovyRuntimeException(ioe); } } /** * Prints a string. * * @param text String to be written */ public void print(String text) { try { out.write(text); } catch(IOException ioe) { throw new GroovyRuntimeException(ioe); } } /** * Prints a character. * * @param c char to be written */ public void print(char c) { try { out.write(c); } catch(IOException ioe) { throw new GroovyRuntimeException(ioe); } } /** * Prints the current indent level. */ public void printIndent() { for (int i = 0; i < indentLevel; i++) { try { out.write(indent); } catch(IOException ioe) { throw new GroovyRuntimeException(ioe); } } } /** * Prints an end-of-line character (if enabled via addNewLines property). * Defaults to outputting a single '\n' character but by using a custom * Writer, e.g. PlatformLineWriter, you can get platform-specific * end-of-line characters. * * @see #IndentPrinter(Writer, String, boolean) */ public void println() { if (addNewlines) { try { out.write("\n"); } catch(IOException ioe) { throw new GroovyRuntimeException(ioe); } } } public void incrementIndent() { ++indentLevel; } public void decrementIndent() { --indentLevel; } public int getIndentLevel() { return indentLevel; } public void setIndentLevel(int indentLevel) { this.indentLevel = indentLevel; } public void flush() { try { out.flush(); } catch(IOException ioe) { throw new GroovyRuntimeException(ioe); } } }
