NAME ^

DataFlow::Types - Type definitions for DataFlow

VERSION ^

version 1.121830

SYNOPSIS ^

When defining a Moose attribute. Example:

       has 'direction' => (
           is  => 'ro',
           isa => 'ConversionDirection',
       );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module contains only type definitions. Most of the time there will be no need to work or mess with this code, unless there is a bug in DataFlow and/or you are developing a new feature which requires a new type or an adjustment to an existing one.

SUBTYPES ^

Processor

A DataFlow::Proc object, with coercions.

Coercions

from Str

Named processors. If it contains the substring '::', DataFlow will try to create an object of that type. If it does not, then DataFlow will attempt to create an object of the type DataFlow::Proc::<STRING>. The string 'Proc' is reserved for creating an object of the type <DataFlow::Proc>.

from ArrayRef

Named processor with parameters. The first element of the array must be a text string, subject to the rules used in the previous item. The rest of the array is passed as-is for the constructor of the object.

from CodeRef

Code reference, a.k.a. a sub. A processor object will be created:

    DataFlow::Proc->new( p => CODE )

from DataFlow::Role::Processor

An object that can process something. Objects from both DataFlow and DataFlow::Proc classes will consume that role, so will all its descendants. If the element is blessed and ->does('DataFlow::Role::Processor'), a processor object will be created wrapping it:

    DataFlow::Proc->new( p => sub { PROCESSOR->process($_) } )

ProcessorList

An ArrayRef of DataFlow::Role::Processor objects, with at least one element.

Coercions

from ArrayRef

Attempts to make DataFlow::Role::Processor objects out of different things provided in an ArrayRef. It currently works for:

using the same rules as in the subtype Processor described above. Anything else will trigger an error.

from Str

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping a named processor, as described in the coercion section of the Processor subtype above.

from CodeRef

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping a processor, as described in the coercion section of the Processor subtype above.

from DataFlow::Role::Processor

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping the processor, as described in the coercion section of the Processor subtype above.

WrappedProcList

An ArrayRef of DataFlow::ProcWrapper objects, with at least one element.

Coercions

from ArrayRef

Attempts to make DataFlow::ProcWrapper objects out of different things provided in an ArrayRef. It currently works for:

using the same rules as in the subtype Processor described above and wrapping the resulting Processor in a DataFlow::ProcWrapper object. Anything else will trigger an error.

from Str

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping a named processor, as described in the coercion section of the Processor subtype above and wrapping the resulting Processor in a DataFlow::ProcWrapper object.

from CodeRef

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping a processor, as described in the coercion section of the Processor subtype above and wrapping the resulting Processor in a DataFlow::ProcWrapper object.

from DataFlow::Role::Processor

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping the processor, as described in the coercion section of the Processor subtype above and wrapping the resulting Processor in a DataFlow::ProcWrapper object.

ProcessorSub

A CodeRef, with coercions.

Coercions

from DataFlow::Role::Processor

An ArrayRef will be created wrapping the processor. The rules used above for DataFlow::Role::Processor elements in the ArrayRef apply.

ConversionDirection

An enumeration used by type DataFlow::Proc::Converter, containing two elements:

See DataFlow::Proc::Converter for more information.

ConversionSubs

A HashRef[CodeRef] also used by DataFlow::Proc::Converter. It must have two keys only, 'CONVERT_TO' and 'CONVERT_FROM', holding a code reference (sub) for each of those.

See DataFlow::Proc::Converter for more information.

Decoder

A CodeRef used by DataFlow::Proc::Encoding. It will be used to decode strings from some particular character encoding to Perl's internal representation.

Coercions

from Str

It will automagically create a sub that uses function decode() from module Encode to decode from a named encoding.

Encoder

A CodeRef used by DataFlow::Proc::Encoding. It will be used to encode strings from Perl's internal representation to some particular character encoding.

Coercions

from Str

It will automagically create a sub that uses function encode() from module Encode to encode to a named encoding.
