CHI::Cascade::Rule - a rule class

SYNOPSIS

    $cascade->rule(
        target  => qr/^target_(\d+)$/,
        depends => 'base_target',
        code    => sub {
            my ( $rule, $target, $dep_values ) = @_;

            # An execution of $cascade->run('target_12') will pass in code a $rule as:
            #
            # $rule->target     eq      $target
            # $rule->depends    ===     [ 'base_target' ]
            # $rule->qr_params  ===     ( 12 )
            # $rule->params     ==      [ 1, 2, 3 ]
        },
        params  => [ 1, 2, 3 ]
    );

    $cascade->run('target_12');

CONSTRUCTOR

An instance of this object is created by CHI::Cascade in "rule" in CHI::Cascade as a following:

    $rule = CHI::Cascade::Rule->new( %options )

The list of options please see in "rule( %options )" in CHI::Cascade method.

DESCRIPTION

The instance of this object is passed to "code" in CHI::Cascade, "coderef" in CHI::Cascade, "recomputed" in CHI::Cascade, "depends_catch" in CHI::Cascade by CHI::Cascade as first argument (The API of running this code was changed since v0.16). You can use it object as accessor to some parameters of your currect executed target.

METHODS

qr_params

returns a list. It is used for getting a result of =~ operation if target is described for rule through qr// operator.

depends

returns arrayref of dependencies (depends option of rule method) even if one scalar value is passed there (as one dependence). Always is defined even there no defined depends option for rule. If 'depends' is coderef you will get a returned value of one.

target

returns current target as plain text after matching.

params

returns any data of any type what were passed to "params" in CHI::Cascade

cascade

returns reference to CHI::Cascade instance object for this rule.

value_expires

Sets an CHI's cache expire value for the target marker of this value to be created by this rule in notation described in "DURATION EXPRESSIONS" in CHI. The default is 'never'. It can be coderef or string scalar format as "DURATION EXPRESSIONS" in CHI. A coderef should return value in same format. You can use this method inside "code" in CHI::Cascade and "recomputed" in CHI::Cascade your callbacks if you want to force recomputing of current target through minimum this time.
