User::Identity::Archive - base class for archiving user information
User::Identity::Archive is a User::Identity::Item User::Identity::Archive is extended by User::Identity::Archive::Plain
use User::Identity::Archive::Plain; my $friends = User::Identity::Archive::Plain->new('friends'); $friends->from(\*FH); $friends->from('.friends');
An archive stores collections. It depends on the type of archive how and where that is done. Some archivers may limit the kinds of selections which can be stored.
Option --Defined in --Default description User::Identity::Item undef from undef name User::Identity::Item <required> parent User::Identity::Item undef
. description => STRING
. from => FILEHANDLE|FILENAME
. name => STRING
. parent => OBJECT
$obj->addCollection(OBJECT | ([TYPE], OPTIONS))
Read definitions from the specified SOURCE, which usually can be a filehandle or filename. The syntax used in the information SOURCE is archiver dependent.
Not all archivers implement
from(), so you may want to check with
example:use User::Identity::Archive::Some; my $a = User::Identity::Archive::Some->new('xyz'); $a->from(\*STDIN) if $a->can('from');
Error: $object is not a collection.
The first argument is an object, but not of a class which extends User::Identity::Collection.
Error: Cannot load collection module for $type ($class).
Either the specified $type does not exist, or that module named $class returns compilation errors. If the type as specified in the warning is not the name of a package, you specified a nickname which was not defined. Maybe you forgot the 'require' the package which defines the nickname.
Error: Creation of a collection via $class failed.
The $class did compile, but it was not possible to create an object of that class using the options you specified.
Error: Don't know what type of collection you want to add.
If you add a collection, it must either by a collection object or a list of options which can be used to create a collection object. In the latter case, the type of collection must be specified.
Warning: No collection $name
The collection with $name does not exist and can not be created.
