NAME ^

Algorithm::Diff::Callback - Use callbacks on computed differences

VERSION ^

version 0.100

SYNOPSIS ^

Use callbacks in your diff process to get better control over what will happen.

    use Algorithm::Diff::Callback 'diff_arrays';

    diff_arrays(
        \@old_family_members,
        \@new_family_members,
        added   => sub { say 'Happy to hear about ', shift },
        deleted => sub { say 'Sorry to hear about ', shift },
    );

Or using hashes:

    use Algorithm::Diff::Callback 'diff_hashes';

    diff_hashes(
        \%old_details,
        \%new_details,
        added   => sub { say 'Gained ', shift },
        deleted => sub { say 'Lost ',   shift },
        changed => sub {
            my ( $key, $before, $after ) = @_;
            say "$key changed from $before to $after";
        },
    );

DESCRIPTION ^

One of the difficulties when using diff modules is that they assume they know what you want the information for. Some give you formatted output, some give you just the values that changes (but neglect to mention how each changed) and some (such as Algorithm::Diff) give you way too much information that you now have to skim over and write long complex loops for.

Algorithm::Diff::Callback let's you pick what you're going to diff (Arrays or Hashes) and set callbacks for the diff process.

EXPORT ^

You'll need to declare to explicitly export these functions.

diff_arrays

diff_hashes

    use Algorithm::Diff::Callback qw<diff_arrays diff_hashes>;

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

diff_arrays(\@old, \@new, %callbacks)

The first two parameters are array references to compare.

The rest of the parameters are keys for the type of callback you want and the corresponding callback. You can provide multiple callbacks. Supported keys are:

diff_hashes(\%old, \%new, %callbacks)

The first two parameters are hash references to compare.

The rest of the parameters are keys for the type of callback you want and the corresponding callback. You can provide multiple callbacks. Supported keys are:
