NAME

Object::Boolean::YesNo - Boolean objects which stringify to "Yes" or "No"

SYNOPSIS

    use Object::Boolean::YesNo 
        True  => { -as => 'Yes'},  # optional
        False => { -as => 'No' };  # optional

    # The constructor will create a false object with a Perl 
    # false value or the word 'No'.
    my $a = Object::Boolean::YesNo->new(0);
    my $b = Object::Boolean::YesNo->new('No');

    # Anything else will be true :
    my $c = Object::Boolean::YesNo->new(1);
    my $d = Object::Boolean::YesNo->new('hippopotamus');

    # These objects stringify to 'Yes' and 'No'.
    print $a;  # No
    print !$a; # Yes (negating produces another object)
    print $c;  # Yes
    print $d;  # Yes

DESCRIPTION

Boolean objects that stringify to 'Yes' and 'No', but behave like booleans in boolean context. The constants (functions) True and False can be imported as Yes and No as shown above.

NOTES

If you are using Class::DBI, and you have columns which represent booleans as enum('Yes','No'), then doing this :

    __PACKAGE__->has_a(column_name => 'Object::Boolean::YesNo')

will make column_name inflate and deflate into Object::Boolean::YesNo objects.
