 my $web = EntityModel::Web->new;
 my $req = EntityModel::Web::Request->new;
 my $site = $web->find_site('');
 my $page = $site->find_page('');
 my $response = $page->handle_request($req);


The site maintains a path map for string and regex paths:

 string => {
  index.html                    => {},
  documentation/index.html      => {},
 regex => [
  tutorial/([^/]+)/perl.html    => {}

When parsing a new page entry, the "full_path" method is used to identify the entry to use for the path map.

The / delimiter is added automatically unless the pathseparator parameter is given, in which case this value will be used instead (can be used for cases such as page_(one|two|three).html.

Any path that matches a string path exactly (via hash lookup) will return that page without further checks. If this match fails, the string is compared against the regex entries. Normally top-level pages should be anchored to the start of the string.

Using a prefix substring match may help for performance, although this would need to limit to non-metachars only and only applies to the start-anchored regex entries.



In list context, returns the captured regex elements if we had any.
