NAME ^

Type::DeclaredAt - A class to represent where a type or coercion was declared

VERSION ^

version 0.05

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $declared = Type::DeclaredAt->new_from_caller(1);

  print $declared->description();

DESCRIPTION ^

This class provides a thin wrapper around some of the return values from Perl's caller() built-in. It's used internally to identify where types and coercions are being declared, which is useful when generating error messages.

API ^

This class provides the following methods.

Type::DeclaredAt->new_from_caller($depth)

Given a call stack depth, this method returns a new Type::DeclaredAt object.

$declared_at->package(), $declared_at->filename(), $declared_at->line()

Returns the call stack information recorded when the object was created. These values are always populated.

$declared_at->subroutine()

Returns the subroutine from the call stack. This may be an udnef

$declared_at->has_subroutine()

Returns true if there is a subroutine name associated with this object.

$declared_at->description()

Puts all the information together into a single string like "declared in package Foo::Bar (.../Foo/Bar.pm) at line 42 in sub named blah".
