DESCRIPTION

This Mouse class is to be inherited by other backend plugin classes

See "read callback" in Config::Model::BackendMgr and "write callback" in Config::Model::BackendMgr for more details on the method that must be provided by any backend classes.

CONSTRUCTOR

new ( node => $node_obj, name => backend_name )

The constructor should be used only by Config::Model::Node.

Methods to override

annotation

Whether the backend supports to read and write annotation. Default is 0. Override if your backend supports annotations

Methods

read_global_comments( lines , comment_char)

Read the global comments (i.e. the first block of comments until the first blank or non comment line) and store them as root node annotation. The first parameter (lines) is an array ref containing file lines.

associates_comments_with_data ( lines , comment_char)

This method will extract comments from the passed lines and associate them with actual data found in the file lines. Data is associated with comments preceding or on the same line as the data. Returns a list of [ data, comment ] .

Example:

  # Foo comments
  foo= 1
  Baz = 0 # Baz comments

will return

  ( [  'foo= 1', 'Foo comments'  ] , [ 'Baz = 0' , 'Baz comments' ] )

write_global_comments( io_handle , comment_char)

Write global comments from configuration root annotation into the io_handle (if defined). Returns the string written to the io_handle.

write_data_and_comments( io_handle , comment_char , data1, comment1, data2, comment2 ...)

Write data and comments in the io_handle (if defined). Comments are written before the data. Returns the string written to the io_handle. If a data is undef, the comment will be written on its own line.
