NAME

List::Filter::Storage::MEM - filter storage in memory

SYNOPSIS

   use List::Filter::Storage::MEM;
   my $ffpsm = List::Filter::Storage::MEM->new();

   # This is a plugin, not intended for direct use.
   # See: List:Filter:Storage

DESCRIPTION

List::Filter::Storage::MEM, is a Plug-in to use for "storing" List::Filter filters in memory, so that they can be recalled using the List::Filter::Storage interface that scans through multiple storage locations.

The filter_data structure may be passed in as the "connect_to" parameter, or one will be created internally if one has not been passed in. This may be added to with the "save" method. The entire structure can be extracted with the "filter_data" accessor, or (more typically) filter's may be looked up by name, using the "lookup" method.

METHODS

initialization code

new

Instantiates a new List::Filter::Profile object.

Takes an optional hashref as an argument, with named fields identical to the names of the object attributes.

With no arguments, the newly created filter will be empty.

init

Initialize object attributes and then lock them down to prevent accidental creation of new ones.

Note: there is no leading underscore on name "init", though it's arguably an "internal" routine (i.e. not likely to be of use to client code).

save

Given a filter "saves" it in memory.

Returns the ref to the filter object.

lookup
list_filters

Returns a list of all avaliable named filters.
