UI::Dialog::Backend::Nautilus is simply an OOPerl wrapper around the data provided by the nautilus(1) file manager's scripts feature.
nautilus(1) is a GNOME file manager that has a "right-click" menu for user made scripts (found in the user's ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ directory). This is an OOPerl interface to the environment variables provided to the scripts during runtime by nautilus. When you use any of the UI::Dialog meta classes (UI::Dialog, UI::Dialog::GNOME, etc.) access to this backend is provided via the $d->nautilus method. ie: replace $nautilus with $d->nautilus in the synopsis example (provided you made $d with something like my $d = new UI::Dialog...). Also, UI::Dialog and friends only load this module when you first use the $d->nautilus method (this may silently fail, but you can test by ref() for success).
my $nautilus = new UI::Dialog::Backend::Nautilus ();
This is the Class Constructor method. It accepts a list of key => value pairs and uses them as the defaults when interacting with the various widgets.
A blessed object reference of the UI::Dialog::Backend::Nautilus class.
my $path = $nautilus->path();
This method examines the NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI string uri unescapes and strips it of any prefixing protocol indicators (file://) then returns the modified string.
my @paths = $nautilus->paths();
This method splits the NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS multiline string and returns the ARRAY of selections in the order provided by nautilus.
my $uri = $nautilus->uri();
This simply returns the NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI string.
my @uris = $nautilus->uris();
This method splits the NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS multiline string and returns the ARRAY of selections in the order provided by nautilus. This does not uri escape or unescape the string.
my ($h,$w,$x,$y) = $nautilus->geometry();
This method splits the NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_WINDOW_GEOMETRY string and returns and ARRAY of the geometry details provided by nautilus. The array returned contains the following (in order):height width X-coordinate Y-coordinate
my $path = $nautilus->uri_unescape( "file:///path/to/somewhere" ); my @paths = $nautilus->uri_unescape( "file:///path/to/somewhere", "file:///yet/another/path" );
This is the method used to unescape the NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI in the path() method. This method is derived from the URI::Escape module which is not included in the Perl core modules yet is vitally necessary for the path() method to function in a usefull manor.
an ARRAY or a SCALAR depending on the calling arguments.
