NAME

HTML::Microformats::ObjectCache - cache for microformat objects

DESCRIPTION

Prevents microformats from being parsed twice within the same context.

This is not just for saving time. It also prevents the occasional infinite loop, and makes sure identifiers are used consistently.

Constructor

$cache = HTML::Microformats::ObjectCache->new

Creates a new, empty cache.

Public Methods

$cache->set($context, $package, $element, $object);

For a given context, package (e.g. 'HTML::Microformats::Format::hCard') and DOM element node, stores an object in the cache.

$object = $cache->get($context, $package, $element);

For a given context, package (e.g. 'HTML::Microformats::Format::hCard') and DOM element node, retrieves an object from the cache.

@objects = $cache->get_all($context, [$package]);

For a given context and package (e.g. 'HTML::Microformats::Format::hCard'), retrieves a list of objects from within the cache.
