NAME

Property::Lookup::File - File-based property lookup layer

VERSION

version 1.101400

SYNOPSIS

    use Property::Lookup;

    my %opt;
    GetOptions(\%opt, '...');

    my $config = Property::Lookup->new;
    $config->add_layer(file => 'conf.yaml');
    $config->add_layer(getopt => \%opt);
    $config->default_layer({
        foo => 23,
    });

    my $foo = $config->foo;

    # ...

    use Property::Lookup::Local;
    local %Property::Lookup::Local::opt = (bar => 'baz');

DESCRIPTION

This class implements a file-based property lookup layer. It subclasses Property::Lookup::Hash but implements a custom init method - see its documentation.

METHODS

init

    my $layer = Property::Lookup::File->new(filename => 'conf.yaml');

If a filename has been set, it uses YAML to read that file. Before parsing it, certain substitutions are performed:

The word SELF is replaced by the path to the configuration file. This way file names relative to the configuration file can be specified.

A dollar sign, followed by an identifier - one or more word characters - is replaced by its equivalent value from the %ENV hash.

Normally you will use this layer via the add_layer() method from Property::Lookup.

INSTALLATION
