NAME ^

Set::Groups - A set of groups.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Set::Groups ;

  # create a set of groups
  $groups = new Set::Groups ;
  
  # create a group MyGroup with a single member
  $groups->addOwnSingleTo("single1","MyGroup") ;

  # add a group member into MyGroup
  $groups->addOwnGroupTo("Member1Group","MyGroup") ; 

  # add a single members into the previous member group
  $groups->addOwnSingleTo("single2","Member1Group") ;
  
  # add a group member into the previous member group
  $groups->addOwnGroupTo("Member2Group","Member1Group") ; 

  # add a single members into the previous member group
  $groups->addOwnSingleTo("single3","Member2Group") ;
  
  # flatten the group MyGroup
  @singles = $groups->getSinglesOf("MyGroup") ; 
  @groups = $groups->getGroupsOf("MyGroup") ; 
  $present = $groups->isSingleOf("single3","MyGroup") ; 
  $present = $groups->isGroupOf("Member2Group","MyGroup") ; 

DESCRIPTION ^

The Groups object implements a set of groups. Each group can own single members and group members. A group can be flattened, i.e. expansed until each of his members is a single one.

CONSTRUCTORS ^

new

Create a new group set.

  my $groups = new Set::Groups

INSTANCE METHODS ^

setDebug

Set a debug level (0 or 1).

  $groups->setDebug(1) ;

Set management

newGroup

Create a new empty group and add it into the set. A group is everything which can be a key of a hash. Returns 1 on success, 0 otherwise.

  $groups->newGroup("a_group") ;
  $groups->newGroup(1) ;

deleteGroup

Delete a group from the set. Return 1 on success, 0 otherwise.

  $groups->deleteGroup("a_group") ;

getGroups

Return the list of the groups present into the set.

  @groups = $groups->getGroups() ; 

getCyclicGroups

Return the list of the cyclic groups (i.e. self-contained) present into the set.

  @groups = $groups->getGroups() ; 

getAcyclicGroups

Return the list of the acyclic groups (i.e. not self-contained) present into the set.

  @groups = $groups->getGroups() ; 

hasGroup

Check if a group is present into the set.

  $present = $groups->hasGroup("a_group") ;

Groups management

addOwnSingleTo

Add a single member to a group. A single is everything which can be a key of a hash. If the group doesn't exist in the set, it is created. Return 1 on success, 0 otherwise.

  $groups->addOwnSingleTo("single","a_group") ;

addOwnGroupTo

Add a group member to a group. If the embedding group doesn't exist in the set, it is created. If the member group doesn't exist in the set, it is created as an empty group. Return 1 on success, 0 otherwise.

  $groups->addOwnGroupTo("group_member","a_group") ;

removeOwnSingleFrom

Remove an own single from a group. Return 1 on success, 0 otherwise.

  $groups->removeOwnSingleFrom("single","a_group") ;

removeOwnGroupFrom

Remove a group member from a group. Return 1 on success, 0 otherwise.

  $groups->removeOwnGroupFrom("a_member_group","a_group") ;

isAcyclic

Check if a group is acyclic.

  $is_acyclic = $groups->isAcyclic("a_group") ;

isOwnSingleOf

Check if a single is an own member of a group.

  $present = $groups->isOwnSingleOf("single","a_group") ;

isOwnGroupOf

Check if a group is an own member of a group.

  $present = $groups->isOwnGroupOf("a_group_member","a_group") ;

isSingleOf

Check if a single is a (own or not) member of a group.

  $present = $groups->isSingleOf("single","an_acyclic_group") ;

Warning - Calling this method with a cyclic group as argument gives a infinite recursion.

isGroupOf

Check if a group is a (own or not) member of a group.

  $present = $groups->isGroupOf("a_group_member","an_acyclic_group") ;

Warning - Calling this method with a cyclic group as argument gives a infinite recursion.

getOwnSinglesOf

Return the list of own singles of a group.

  @singles = $groups->getOwnSinglesOf("a_group") ;

getOwnGroupsOf

Return the list of own groups of a group.

  @groups = $groups->getOwnGroupsOf("a_group") ;

getSinglesOf

Return the list of (own or not) singles of an acyclic group.

  @singles = $groups->getSinglesOf("an_acyclic_group") ;

Warning - Calling this method with a cyclic group as argument gives a infinite recursion.

getGroupsOf

Return the list of (own or not) groups of an acyclic group.

  @groups = $groups->getGroupsOf("an_acyclic_group") ;

Warning - Calling this method with a cyclic group as argument gives a infinite recursion.

addGroupTo

Deprecated - Replaced by addOwnGroupTo.

addSingleTo

Deprecated - Replaced by addOwnSingleTo.

removeGroupFrom

Deprecated - Replaced by removeOwnGroupFrom.

removeSingleFrom

Deprecated - Replaced by removeOwnSingleFrom.

EXAMPLES ^

Suppose a group file like :

        admin:root,adm
        team:piotr,lioudmila,adam,annette,jacquelin
        true-users:james,sophie,@team,mohammed
        everybody:@admin,operator,@true-users
        daemon:apache,smmsp,named,daemon
        virtual:nobody,halt,@daemon
        all:@everybody,@virtual

where @name means group name, then the following code :

        use Set::Groups ;

        $groups = new Set::Groups ;
        while(<>)
        {
          ($group,$members) = /^(\S+):(.*)$/ ;
          @members = split(/,/,$members) ;
          for $member (@members)
          {
            if ($member=~/^@/)
            {
              $member=~s/^@// ;
              $groups->addOwnGroupTo($member,$group) ;
            }
            else
            {
              $groups->addOwnSingleTo($member,$group) ;
            }
          }
        }
        die "some groups are cyclic" if scalar($groups->getCyclicGroups())>0 ;
        print "singles: ",join(', ',$groups->getSinglesOf("all")),"\n" ;
        print "groups: ",join(', ',$groups->getGroupsOf("all")),"\n" ;

gives :

        singles: apache, sophie, jacquelin, lioudmila, mohammed, smmsp, nobody, adm, annette, operator, james, named, adam, halt, root, daemon, piotr
        groups: admin, everybody, team, daemon, true-users, virtual
