NAME

Path::IsDev::Result - Result container

VERSION

version 1.001002

SYNOPSIS

    use Path::IsDev::Result;

    my $result = Path::IsDev::Result->new( path => '/some/path/that/exists' ):

    if ( $heuristcset->matches( $result ) ) {
        print Dumper($result);
    }

DESCRIPTION

This is a reasonably new internal component for Path::IsDev.

Its purpose is to communicate state between internal things, and give some sort of introspectable context for why things happened in various places without resorting to spamming debug everywhere.

Now instead of turning on debug, as long as you can get a result, you can inspect and dump that result at the point you need it.

METHODS

BUILD

add_reason

Call this method from a heuristic to record checking of the heuristic and the relevant meta-data.

    $result->add_reason( $heuristic, $matchvalue, $reason_summary, \%contextinfo );

For example:

    sub Foo::matches  {
        my ( $self , $result_object ) = @_;
        if ( $result_object->path->child('bar')->exists ) {
            $result_object->add_reason( $self, 1, "child 'bar' exists" , {
                child => 'bar',
                'exists?' => 1,
                child_path => $result_object->path->child('bar')
            });
            $result_object->result(1);
            return 1;
        }
        return;
    }

Note that here, $matchvalue should be the result of the relevant matching logic, not the global impact.

For instance, excludes compositions should still add reasons of $matchvalue == 1, but they should not set $result_object->result(1). ( In fact, setting result is the job of the individual heuristic, not the matches that are folded into it )
