NAME

MooseX::Types::HTTPMethod - Type constraints for HTTP method names

VERSION

version 0.002

SYNOPSIS

    use Moose;
    use MooseX::Type::HTTPMethod qw(HTTPMethod11 HTTPMethod);

    has rest_query_type => (
        is => 'ro', isa => HTTPMethod11,
    );

    has request_type => (
        is => 'ro', isa => HTTPMethod,
    );

    print "GET is an HTTP/1.1 method: ", (is_HTTPMethod11('GET') : 1 : 0), "\n";
    # prints 1
    print "PATCH is an HTTP/1.1 method: ", (is_HTTPMethod11('FOO') : 1 : 0), "\n";
    # prints 0

    print "GET is an HTTP method: ", (is_HTTPMethod('GET') : 1 : 0), "\n";
    # prints 1
    print "PATCH is an HTTP method: ", (is_HTTPMethod('PATCH') : 1 : 0), "\n";
    # prints 1

DESCRIPTION

This module implements string types which validate against all HTTP method names currently defined by RFCs.

TYPES

Multiple types are available, encompassing various specifications:

HTTPMethod10

HTTP methods defined by HTTP 1.0: GET, POST, HEAD

HTTPMethod11

HTTP methods defined by HTTP 1.1: HTTP 1.0 plus OPTIONS, PUT, DELETE, TRACE and CONNECT

HTTPMethod

All HTTP methods currently defined by RFCs (HTTP 1.1 plus a whole lot more, mostly for WebDAV protocols)

IMPORTED FUNCTIONS

As with all MooseX::Types types, the inclusion of one type name 'Foo' in the use line will result in an import of these functions:

Foo

returns the type itself (an object implementing the Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint interface), and

is_Foo

a function returning a bool, checking if the passed value validates against the Foo type

SUPPORT

Bugs may be submitted through https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=MooseX-Types-HTTPMethod. I am also usually active on irc, as 'ether' at irc://irc.perl.org.
