NAME

BSON::String - String data for BSON

VERSION

version 0.12

SYNOPSIS

    use BSON 'encode';

    my $str1 = BSON::String->new('Jack Reacher');
    my $str2 = BSON::String->new('55');
    my $str3 = BSON::String->new('-1234.7654');

    my $bson = encode( { a => $str1, b => $str2, c => $str3 } );

DESCRIPTION

Since Perl does not distinguish between numbers and strings, this module is provides an explicit string type for BSON's string element. It's very simple and does not implement any operator overloading other than "".

METHODS

new

Main constructor which takes a single parameter - the string.

    my $string = BSON::String->new('Hello, there!');
    print "$string\n";    # Prints 'Hello, there!'
    if ( "$string" gt "abcde" ) {

        # This will work
        ...;
    }

value

Returns the value of the string.

OVERLOAD

Only the "" operator is overloaded. You won't be able to perform string comparison on a BSON::String instance.
