XML::Pastor::Builtin::boolean - Class for the W3C builtin type boolean.
This module is used internally by XML::Pastor. You do not normally know much about this module to actually use XML::Pastor. It is documented here for completeness and for XML::Pastor developers. Do not count on the interface of this module. It may change in any of the subsequent releases. You have been warned.
This class descends from XML::Pastor::Builtin::Scalar.
This class inherits many methods from its ancestors. Please see XML::Pastor::Builtin::Scalar for more methods.
The boolify() method is used for overloading the 'bool' operation in XML::Pastor::SimpleType. Normally the string 'false' will have a TRUE(1) value in Perl (since it is a non-null string). This method will make sure that the 'false' literal value will pass as a FALSE(0) value while the overload is in use. Other values behave normally, that is :
0 => FALSE
1 => TRUE
'true' => TRUE
'false' => FALSE
any other numeric or non-null string => TRUE
There no known bugs at this time, but this doesn't mean there are aren't any. Note that, although some testing was done prior to releasing the module, this should still be considered alpha code. So use it at your own risk.
Note that there may be other bugs or limitations that the author is not aware of.
