NAME

MooseX::Types::Path::Class - A Path::Class type library for Moose

VERSION

version 0.08

SYNOPSIS

  package MyClass;
  use Moose;
  use MooseX::Types::Path::Class;
  with 'MooseX::Getopt';  # optional

  has 'dir' => (
      is       => 'ro',
      isa      => 'Path::Class::Dir',
      required => 1,
      coerce   => 1,
  );

  has 'file' => (
      is       => 'ro',
      isa      => 'Path::Class::File',
      required => 1,
      coerce   => 1,
  );

  # these attributes are coerced to the
  # appropriate Path::Class objects
  MyClass->new( dir => '/some/directory/', file => '/some/file' );

DESCRIPTION

MooseX::Types::Path::Class creates common Moose types, coercions and option specifications useful for dealing with Path::Class objects as Moose attributes.

Coercions (see Moose::Util::TypeConstraints) are made from both Str and ArrayRef to both Path::Class::Dir and Path::Class::File objects. If you have MooseX::Getopt installed, the Getopt option type ("=s") will be added for both Path::Class::Dir and Path::Class::File.

EXPORTS

None of these are exported by default. They are provided via MooseX::Types.

Dir, File

These exports can be used instead of the full class names. Example:

  package MyClass;
  use Moose;
  use MooseX::Types::Path::Class qw(Dir File);

  has 'dir' => (
      is       => 'ro',
      isa      => Dir,
      required => 1,
      coerce   => 1,
  );

  has 'file' => (
      is       => 'ro',
      isa      => File,
      required => 1,
      coerce   => 1,
  );

Note that there are no quotes around Dir or File.

is_Dir($value), is_File($value)

Returns true or false based on whether $value is a valid Dir or File.

to_Dir($value), to_File($value)

Attempts to coerce $value to a Dir or File. Returns the coerced value or false if the coercion failed.
