AnyEvent::CallbackStack - Convert nested callback into easy-to-read-write-and-maintain serial/procedural coding style by using Callback Stack.

SYNOPSIS

Use AnyEvent::CallbackStack with the following style.

    use feature 'say';
    use AnyEvent::CallbackStack;

    my $cs = AnyEvent::CallbackStack->new();
    $cs->start( %foo );
    $cs->add( sub {
            do_something;
            $cs->next( $bar, $yohoo );
    });
    
    $cv = $cs->last;
    return $cv;
    
    # or
    
    http_get http://BlueT.org => sub { $cs->start($_[0]) };
    $cs->add( sub { say $_[0]->recv } );
    
    # or
    
    $cs->add( sub { say 'I got the ball'; $cs->next( $_[0]->recv ); } )
    print 'Your name please?: ';
    chomp(my $in = <STDIN>);
    $cs->start($in);
    $cs->add( sub { say "Lucky you, $_[0]->recv" } );

METHODS

new

No paramater needed.

        my $cs = new AnyEvent::CallbackStack;

start

Start and walk through the Callback Stack from step 0.

        $cs->start( 'foo' );

add

Add (append) callback into the Callback Stack.

        $cs->add( $code_ref );

next

Check out from the current step and pass value to the next callback in callback stack.

        $cs->next( @result );

IMPORTANT: Remember that only if you call this method, the next callback in stack will be triggered.

step

Experimental.

Start the callback flow from the specified step.

        $cs->step( 3, @data );

last

Get the very last AnyEvent::CondVar object.

Usually it's called when you are writing a module and need to return it to your caller.

        my $cv = $cs->last;
        # or
        return $cs->last;
