NAME

Data::Object::Regexp

ABSTRACT

Regexp Class for Perl 5

SYNOPSIS

  package main;

  use Data::Object::Regexp;

  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr(\w+));

DESCRIPTION

This package provides methods for manipulating regexp data.

INHERITS

This package inherits behaviors from:

Data::Object::Kind

INTEGRATES

This package integrates behaviors from:

Data::Object::Role::Dumpable

Data::Object::Role::Proxyable

Data::Object::Role::Throwable

LIBRARIES

This package uses type constraints from:

Data::Object::Types

METHODS

This package implements the following methods:

defined

  defined() : Num

The defined method returns true if the object represents a value that meets the criteria for being defined, otherwise it returns false.

defined example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new;

  $re->defined; # 1

eq

  eq(Any $arg1) : Any

The eq method will throw an exception if called.

eq example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr//);

  $re->eq(qr//);

ge

  ge(Any $arg1) : Any

The ge method will throw an exception if called.

ge example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr//);

  $re->ge(qr//);

gt

  gt(Any $arg1) : Any

The gt method will throw an exception if called.

gt example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr//);

  $re->gt(qr//);

le

  le(Any $arg1) : Any

The le method will throw an exception if called.

le example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr//);

  $re->le(qr//);

lt

  lt(Any $arg1) : Any

The lt method will throw an exception if called.

lt example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr//);

  $re->lt(qr//);

ne

  ne(Any $arg1) : Any

The ne method will throw an exception if called.

ne example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr//);

  $re->ne(qr//);

replace

  replace(Str $arg1, Str $arg2) : ReplaceObject

The replace method performs a regular expression substitution on the given string. The first argument is the string to match against. The second argument is the replacement string. The optional third argument might be a string representing flags to append to the s///x operator, such as 'g' or 'e'. This method will always return a Data::Object::Replace object which can be used to introspect the result of the operation.

replace example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr/test/);

  $re->replace('this is a test', 'drill');
replace example #2
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr/test/);

  $re->replace('test 1 test 2 test 3', 'drill', 'gi');
  search(Str $arg1) : SearchObject

The search method performs a regular expression match against the given string, this method will always return a Data::Object::Search object which can be used to introspect the result of the operation.

search example #1
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr/test/);

  $re->search('this is a test');
search example #2
  my $re = Data::Object::Regexp->new(qr/test/);

  $re->search('this does not match', 'gi');
