Sah::Schema::perl::tabledata::modnames_with_optional_args - Array of Perl TableData::* module names without the prefix, with optional args, e.g. ["Locale::US::State", "WordList=wordlist,EN::Enable"]


This document describes version 0.001 of Sah::Schema::perl::tabledata::modnames_with_optional_args (from Perl distribution Sah-Schemas-TableData), released on 2021-06-11.


To check data against this schema (requires Data::Sah):

 use Data::Sah qw(gen_validator);
 my $validator = gen_validator("perl::tabledata::modnames_with_optional_args*");
 say $validator->($data) ? "valid" : "INVALID!";

 # Data::Sah can also create validator that returns nice error message string
 # and/or coerced value. Data::Sah can even create validator that targets other
 # language, like JavaScript. All from the same schema. See its documentation
 # for more details.

To validate function parameters against this schema (requires Params::Sah):

 use Params::Sah qw(gen_validator);

 sub myfunc {
     my @args = @_;
     state $validator = gen_validator("perl::tabledata::modnames_with_optional_args*");

To specify schema in Rinci function metadata and use the metadata with Perinci::CmdLine to create a CLI:

 # in lib/
 package MyApp;
 our %SPEC;
 $SPEC{myfunc} = {
     v => 1.1,
     summary => 'Routine to do blah ...',
     args => {
         arg1 => {
             summary => 'The blah blah argument',
             schema => ['perl::tabledata::modnames_with_optional_args*'],
 sub myfunc {
     my %args = @_;

 # in
 package main;
 use Perinci::CmdLine::Any;

 # in command-line
 % ./ --help
 myapp - Routine to do blah ...

 % ./ --version

 % ./ --arg1 ...


Array of Perl TableData::* module names without the prefix and optional args. Each element is of perl::tabledata::modname schema, e.g. Locale::US::State, WordList=wordlist,EN::Enable.

Contains coercion rule that expands wildcard, so you can specify:


and it will be expanded to e.g.:

 ["Locale::US::State", "Locale::US::City"]

The wildcard syntax supports jokers (?, *, **), brackets ([abc]), and braces ({one,two}). See Module::List::Wildcard for more details.
