NAME ^

Devel::IntelliPerl - Auto-completion for Perl

VERSION ^

version 0.04

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Devel::IntelliPerl;

    my $source = <<'SOURCE';
    package Foo;

    use Moose;

    has foobar => ( isa => 'Str', is => 'rw' );
    has foo => ( isa => 'Foo', is => 'rw' );

    sub bar {
        my ($self, $c) = @_;
        # $c isa Catalyst
        $self->
    }

    1;
    SOURCE


    my $ip = Devel::IntelliPerl->new(source => $source, line_number => 10, column => 12);
    
    my @methods = $ip->methods;

@methods contains bar, foo, and foobar amongst others. Method completion for $c works as well. Using the comment # $c isa Catalyst you can specify the variable $c as an object of the Catalyst class. This comment can be located anywhere in the current file.

Even though the example uses Moose, this module works also with non Moose classes.

See "SCREENCASTS" for usage examples.

ATTRIBUTES ^

line_number (Int $line_number)

Required

Line number of the cursor. Starts at 1.

column (Int $column)

Required

Position of the cursor. Starts at 1.

source (Str $source)

Required

Source code.

filename

Optional

Store the filename of the current file. If this value is set @INC is extended by all lib directories found in any parent directory. This is useful if you want to have access to modules which are not in @INC but in your local lib folder. This method sets "inc".

This value is NOT used to retrive the source code! Use source instead.

inc (ArrayRef[Str] $inc)

Optional

All directories specified will be prepended to @INC.

METHODS ^

error (Str $error)

If an error occurs it is accessible via this method.

line (Str $line)

Sets or gets the current line.

keyword

This represents the current keyword.

Examples (_ stands for the cursor position):

  my $foo = MyClass->_ # keyword is MyClass
  my $foo->_           # keyword is $foo
  my $foo->bar->_      # keyword is $foo->bar

prefix

Part of a method which has been typed already.

Examples (_ stands for the cursor position):

  my $foo = MyClass->foo_ # keyword is MyClass, prefix is foo
  my $foo->bar_           # keyword is $foo,    prefix is bar

methods

Returns all methods which were found for "keyword" and "prefix".

trimmed_methods

Returns "methods" truncated from the beginning by the length of "prefix".

INTERNAL METHODS ^

guess_class (Str $keyword)

Given a keyword (e.g. $foo->bar->file) this method tries to find the class from which to load the methods.

handle_class

Loads the selected class.

handle_self

Loads the current class.

handle_method

This method tries to resove the class of the returned value of a given method. It supports Moose attributes as well as MooseX::Method::Signatures.

Example for an instrospectable class:

    package Signatures;

    use Moose;
    use Path::Class::File;
    use MooseX::Method::Signatures;
    use Moose::Util::TypeConstraints;
    
    has dir => ( isa => 'Path::Class::Dir', is => 'rw' );

    BEGIN { class_type 'PathClassFile', { class => 'Path::Class::File' }; }

    method file returns (PathClassFile) {
        return new Path::Class::File;
    }

    1;

Given this class, Devel::IntelliPerl provides the following features:

  my $sig = new Signatures;
  $sig->_        # will suggest "dir" and "file" amongst others
  $sig->file->_  # will suggest all methods from Path::Class::File

handle_variable

Tries to find the variable's class using regexes. Supported syntaxes:

  $variable = MyClass->new
  $variable = MyClass->new(...)
  $variable = new MyClass
  # $variable isa MyClass

inject_statement (Str $statement)

Injects $statement at the current position.

update_inc

Trigger called by "filename".
