MooseX::Types::Stringlike - Moose type constraints for strings or string-like objects
package Foo; use Moose; use MooseX::Types::Stringlike qw/Stringlike Stringable ArrayRefOfStringlike ArrayRefOfStringable/; has path => ( is => 'ro', isa => Stringlike, coerce => 1 ); has stringable_object => ( is => 'ro', isa => Stringable, ); has paths => ( is => 'ro', isa => ArrayRefOfStringlike, coerce => 1 ); has stringable_objects => ( is => 'ro', isa => ArrayRefOfStringable, );
This module provides a more general version of the
Str type. If coercions are enabled, it will accepts objects that overload stringification and coerces them into strings.
This module uses MooseX::Types to define the following subtypes.
Stringlike is a subtype of
Str. It can coerce
Stringable objects into a string.
Stringable is a subtype of
Object where the object has overloaded stringification.
ArrayRefStringlike is a subtype of
ArrayRef[Str]. It can coerce
ArrayRefOfStringable objects into an arrayref of strings.
ArrayRefOfStringable is a subtype of
ArrayRef[Object] where the objects have overloaded stringification.
Thank you to Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsåker for the idea on IRC that led to this module.
