Config::MVP::Reader::Findable::ByExtension - a Findable Reader that looks for files by extension


version 2.200013


This module should work on any version of perl still receiving updates from the Perl 5 Porters. This means it should work on any version of perl released in the last two to three years. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.



This method, which must be composed by classes including this role, returns the default extension used by files in the format this reader can read.

When the Finder tries to find configuration, it have a directory root and a basename. Each (Findable) reader that it tries in turn will look for a file basename.extension in the root directory. If exactly one file is found, that file is read.


This role provides a default implementation of the refined_location method required by Config::MVP::Reader. It will return a filename based on the original location, if a file exists matching that location plus the reader's default_extension.
