App::ClusterSSH::Base - Base object provding utility functions


    use base qw/ App::ClusterSSH::Base /;

    # in object new method
    sub new {
        ( $class, $arg_ref ) = @_;
        my $self = $class->SUPER::new($arg_ref);
        return $self;


Base object to provide some utility functions on objects - should not be used directly


These extra methods are provided on the object

$obj = App::ClusterSSH::Base->new({ arg => val, });

Creates object. In higher debug levels the args are printed out.


Return the unique id of the object for use in subclasses, such as

    $info_for{ $self->id } = $info

Returns current debug level

$obj->set_debug_level( n )

Set debug level to 'n' for all child objects.

$obj->debug($level, @text)

Output @text on STDOUT if $level is the same or lower that debug_level


Set the Locale::Maketext language. Defaults to 'en'. Expects the App::ClusterSSH/L10N/{lang}.pm module to exist and contain all relevant translations, else defaults to English.

$obj->loc('text to translate [_1]')

Using the App::ClusterSSH/L10N/{lang}.pm module convert the given text to appropriate language. See App::ClusterSSH::L10N for more details. Essentially a wrapper to maketext in Locale::Maketext


Output text on STDOUT.


Stub to allow program to exit neatly from wherever in the code

$config = $obj->config;

Returns whatever configuration object has been set up. Croaks if set_config hasnt been called


Set the config to the given value - croaks if has already been called

%results = $obj->load_file( filename => '/path/to/file', type => '(cluster|config}' )

Load in the specified file and return a hash, parsing the file depending on wther it is a config file (key = value) or cluster file (key value)
