NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::Setenv - Allows you to set up the environment from Catalyst's config file.

VERSION

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS

In your application:

    use Catalyst qw/Setenv/;

In your config file:

    environment:
      FOO: bar
      BAR: baz

When your app starts, $ENV{FOO} will be "bar", and $ENV{BAR} will be "baz".

You can also append and prepend to existing environment variables. For example, if $PATH is /bin:/usr/bin, you can append /myapp/bin by writing:

   environment:
     PATH: "::/myapp/bin"

After that, $PATH will be set to /bin:/usr/bin:/myapp/bin. You can prepend, too:

   environment:
     PATH: "/myapp/bin::"

which yields /myapp/bin:/bin:/usr/bin.

If you want a literal colon at the beginning or end of the environment variable, escape it with a \, like \:foo or foo\:. Note that slashes aren't meaningful elsewhere, they're inserted verbatim into the relevant environment variable.

EXPORT

A list of functions that can be exported. You can delete this section if you don't export anything, such as for a purely object-oriented module.

FUNCTIONS

setup

Calls the other setup methods, and then sets the environment variables.

BUGS

Escaping

Things like "\:foo" can't be literally inserted into an environment variable, due to my simplistic escaping scheme. Patches to fix this (but not interpert \s anywhere else) are welcome.
