NAME ^

Net::DBus::Binding::Value - Strongly typed data value

SYNOPSIS ^

  # Import the convenience functions
  use Net::DBus qw(:typing);

  # Call a method with passing an int32
  $object->doit(dint32("3"));

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a simple wrapper around a raw Perl value, associating an explicit DBus type with the value. This is used in cases where a client is communicating with a server which does not provide introspection data, but for which the basic data types are not sufficient. This class should not be used directly, rather the convenience functions in Net::DBus be called.

METHODS ^

my $value = Net::DBus::Binding::Value->new($type, $value);

Creates a wrapper for the perl value $value marking it as having the dbus data type $type. It is not neccessary to call this method directly, instead the data typing methods in the Net::DBus object should be used.

my $raw = $value->value

Returns the raw perl value wrapped by this object

my $type = $value->type

Returns the dbus data type this value is marked as having
