NAME

Catmandu::Fix::lookup_in_store - change the value of a HASH key or ARRAY index by looking up its value in a store

SYNOPSIS

   # Lookup in an SQLLite database
   lookup_in_store(foo.bar, DBI, data_source: "dbi:SQLite:path/data.sqlite")

   # Lookup in a MongoDB database
   lookup_in_store(foo.bar, MongoDB, database_name: lookups, bag: mydata)

   # Lookup in a MongoDB database, using the default bag and a default value when nothing found
   lookup_in_store(foo.bar, MongoDB, database_name: lookups, default: 'default value')

   # Lookup in a MongoDB database, using the default bag and delete the foo.bar field when nothing found
   lookup_in_store(foo.bar, MongoDB, database_name: lookups, delete: 1)

DESCRIPTION

lookup_in_store(PATH,STORE[,store_param: store_val, ...][,bag: bag_name][,delete:1][,default:value])

Use the lookup_in_store fix to match a field in a record to the "_id" field in a Catmandu::Store of choice. For instance, if a Catmandu::Store contains these records:

    ---
    _id: water
    fr: l'eau
    de: wasser
    en: water
    nl: water
    ---
    _id: tree
    fr: arbre
    de: baum
    en: tree
    nl: boom

And you data contains these fields:

    ---
    _id: 001
    tag: tree
    ---
    _id: 002
    tag: water

Then, the fix below will lookup a tag in the Catmandu::Store and replace it with the database value:

    lookup_in_store(tag, DBI, data_source: "dbi:SQLite:path/data.sqlite")

The resulting data will contain:

    ---
    _id: 001
    tag:
      _id: tree
      fr: arbre
      de: baum
      en: tree
      nl: boom
    ---
    _id: 002
    tag:
      _id: water
      fr: l'eau
      de: wasser
      en: water
      nl: water
