NAME ^

Data::Hive::Store::Hash::Nested - store a hive in nested hashrefs

VERSION ^

version 1.011

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a simple store, primarily for testing, that will store hives in nested hashrefs. All hives are represented as hashrefs, and their values are stored in the entry for the empty string.

So, we could do this:

  my $href = {};

  my $hive = Data::Hive->NEW({
    store_class => 'Hash',
    store_args  => [ $href ],
  });

  $hive->foo->SET(1);
  $hive->foo->bar->baz->SET(2);

We would end up with $href containing:

  {
    foo => {
      ''  => 1,
      bar => {
        baz => {
          '' => 2,
        },
      },
    },
  }

Using empty keys results in a bigger, uglier dump, but allows a given hive to contain both a value and subhives. Please note that this is different behavior compared with earlier releases, in which empty keys were not used and it was not legal to have a value and a hive at a given path. It is possible, although fairly unlikely, that this format will change again. The Hash store should generally be used for testing things that use a hive, as opposed for building hashes that will be used for anything else.

METHODS ^

new

  my $store = Data::Hive::Store::Hash->new(\%hash);

The only argument expected for new is a hashref, which is the hashref in which hive entries are stored.

If no hashref is provided, a new, empty hashref will be used.

hash_store

This method returns the hashref in which things are being used. You should not alter its contents!

name

The name returned by the Hash store is a string, potentially suitable for eval-ing, describing a hash dereference of a variable called $STORE.

  "$STORE->{foo}->{bar}"

This is probably not very useful. It might be replaced with something else in the future.
