DESCRIPTION

This package modifies the consuming package and provides a mechanism for assembling complex pattern matching operations.

METHODS

This package provides the following methods:

match

  match(string | coderef $method, any @args) (Venus::Match)

The match method returns a Venus::Match object having the match value set to the invocant or the result of a dispatch. This method supports dispatching, i.e. providing a method name and arguments whose return value will be acted on by this method.

Since 0.04

match example 1
  package main;

  my $example = Example->new;

  my $match = $example->match;

  # bless({..., value => bless(..., 'Example')}, 'Venus::Match')
match example 2
  package main;

  my $example = Example->new;

  my $match = $example->match('active');

  # bless({..., value => undef}, 'Venus::Match')
match example 3
  package main;

  my $example = Example->new(active => 1);

  my $match = $example->match('active');

  # bless({..., value => 1}, 'Venus::Match')
