Data::Walk::Extracted::Dispatch - Dispatch table management


        package Data::Walk::Extracted;
        use Moose;
        with 'Data::Walk::Extracted::Dispatch';

        my      $main_down_level_data ={
                        ###### Purpose: Used to build the generic elements of the next passed ref down
                        ###### Recieves: the upper ref value
                        ###### Returns: the lower ref value or undef
                        name => '- Extracted - main down level data',
                        DEFAULT => sub{ undef },
                        before_method => sub{ return $_[1] },
                        after_method => sub{ return $_[1] },
                        branch_ref => \&_main_down_level_branch_ref,

        for my $key ( keys %$upper_ref ){
                my $return =    $self->_dispatch_method(
                                                        $main_down_level_data, $key, $upper_ref->{$key},
                $lower_ref->{$key} = $return if defined $return;

        ### this example will not run on it's own it just demonstrates usage!


This role only serves the purpose of standardizing the handling of dispatch tables. It will first attempt to call the passed dispatch call. If it cannot find it then it will attempt a 'DEFAULT' call after which it will 'confess' to failure.

Methods ^

_dispatch_method( $dispatch_ref, $call, @arg_list ) - internal

Definition: To make a class extensible, the majority of the decision points can be managed by (hash) dispatch tables. In order to have the dispatch behavior common across all methods this role can be attached to the class to provided for common dispatching. If the hash key requested is not available then the dispatch method will attempt to call 'DEFAULT'. If both fail the method will 'confess'.

Accepts: This method expects to be called by $self. It first receives the dispatch table (hash) as a data reference. Next, the target hash key is accepted as $call. Finally, any arguments needed by the dispatch table are passed through in @arg_list. if the dispatch table has a name => key the value will be used in any confessed error message.

Returns: defined by the dispatch (hash) table



The module uses Smart::Comments if the '-ENV' option is set. The 'use' is encapsulated in an 'if' block triggered by an environmental variable to comfort non-believers. Setting the variable $ENV{Smart_Comments} will load and turn on smart comment reporting for this role. There are three levels of 'Smartness' available in this module '### #### #####'.


1. Add Log::Shiras debugging in exchange for Smart::Comments
