NAME ^

Kavorka::Parameter - a single parameter in a function signature

DESCRIPTION ^

Kavorka::Parameter is a class where each instance represents a parameter in a function signature. This class is used to help parse the function signature, and also to inject Perl code into the final function.

Instances of this class are also returned by Kavorka's function introspection API.

Introspection API

A parameter instance has the following methods:

ID

An opaque numeric identifier for this parameter.

package

Returns the package name the parameter was declared in.

type

A Type::Tiny object representing the type constraint for the parameter, or undef.

name

The name of the variable associated with this parameter, including its sigil.

constraints

An arrayref of additional constraints upon the value. These are given as coderefs.

named

A boolean indicating whether this is a named parameter.

named_names

An arrayref of names for this named parameter.

position

The position for a positional parameter.

default

A coderef supplying the default value for this parameter.

default_when

The string "=", "//=" or "||=".

traits

A hashref, where the keys represent names of parameter traits, and the values are booleans.

sigil

The sigil of the variable for this parameter.

kind

Returns "our" for package variables; "global" for namespace-qualified package variables (i.e. containing "::"); "magic" for $_ and escape char variables like ${^HELLO}; "my" otherwise.

readonly, ro

A boolean indicating whether this variable will be read-only.

rw

A boolean indicating whether this variable will be read-write.

locked

A boolean indicating whether this variable is a locked hash(ref).

alias

A boolean indicating whether this variable will be an alias.

copy

A boolean indicating whether this variable will be a copy (non-alias).

slurpy

A boolean indicating whether this variable is slurpy.

optional

A boolean indicating whether this variable is optional.

invocant

A boolean indicating whether this variable is an invocant.

coerce

A boolean indicating whether this variable should coerce.

Other Methods

parse

An internal method used to parse a parameter. Only makes sense to use within a Parse::Keyword parser.

injection

The string of Perl code to inject for this parameter.

sanity_check

Tests that the parameter is sane. (For example it would not be sane to have an invocant that is an optional parameter.)
