NAME

ARGV::OrDATA - Let the diamond operator read from DATA if there's no ARGV

VERSION

Version 0.004

SYNOPSIS

    use ARGV::OrDATA;

    while (<>) {
        print;
    }

    __DATA__
    You'll see this if you don't redirect something to the script's
    STDIN or you don't specify a filename on the command line.

DESCRIPTION

Tell your script it should use the DATA section if there's no input coming from STDIN and there are no arguments.

You can also specify which package's DATA should be read instead of the caller's:

    use My::Module;
    use ARGV::OrDATA 'My::Module';

    while (<>) {  # This reads from My/Module.pm's DATA section.

To restore the old behaviour, you can call the unimport method.

    use ARGV::OrDATA;

    my $from_data = <>;

    @ARGV = 'file1.txt';  # Ignored.

    'ARGV::OrDATA'->unimport;

    @ARGV = 'file2.txt';  # Works.

    my $from_file2 = <>;

Calling import after unimport would restore the DATA handle, but wouldn't rewind it, i.e. it would continue from where you stopped (see t/04-unimport.t).

Why?

I use this technique when solving programming contests. The sample input is usually small and I don't want to waste time by saving it into a file.

EXPORT

Nothing.
