OpenFrame::AppKit::Segment::DispatchOnURI - pipeline segments that dispatch only on certain uris

OpenFrame::AppKit::Segment::DispatchOnURI is a base class for all pipeline segments that want to dispatch only at a certain uri. To subclass it you can simply define the dispatch_on_uri method in your package and call the uri() method, which by default is a get/set for the regular expression that will match the path of your uri. If you wish to set a hard value you can override the uri() method to return a regular expression.
