NAME

CSS::SAC::LexicalUnit - SAC units

SYNOPSIS

  use CSS::SAC::LexicalUnit qw(:constants);
  foo if $lu->is_type(LU_TYPE_CONSTANT);

DESCRIPTION

In the SAC spec, LexicalUnit is a linked list, that is, you only ever hold one LexicalUnit, and you ask for the next of for the previous one when you want to move on.

Such a model seems awkward, though I'm sure it makes sense somehow in Java, likely for a Java-specific reason.

In the Perl implementation, I have changed this. A LexicalUnit is an object that stands on it's own and has no next/previous objects. Instead, the $handler->property callback gets called with a LexicalUnitList, which is in fact just an array ref of LexicalUnits.

We also don't differentiate between IntegerValue, FloatValue, and StringValue, it's always Value in Perl. This also applies to Parameters and SubValues. Both are called as Value and return an array ref of LexicalUnits.

I added the is_type() method, see CSS::SAC::Condition for advantages of that approach.

METHODS

  • CSS::SAC::LexicalUnit->new($type,$text,$value) or $lu->new($type,$text,$value)

    Creates a new unit. The $type must be one of the type constants, the text depends on the type of unit (unit text, func name, etc...), and the value is the content of the lu.

  • $lu->DimensionUnitText([$dut]) or getDimensionUnitText

    get/set the text of the dimension unit (eg cm, px, etc...)

  • $lu->FunctionName([$fn]) or getFunctionName

    get/set the name of the function (eg attr, uri, etc...)

  • $lu->Value([$value]) or getValue

    get/set the value of the lu (which may be another lu, or a lu list)

  • $lu->LexicalUnitType([$type]) or getLexicalUnitType

    get/set the type of the lu

  • $lu->is_type($lu_constant)

    returns true is this lu is of type $lu_constant
