Catalyst::DispatchType - DispatchType Base Class
This is an abstract base class for Dispatch Types.
From a code perspective, dispatch types are used to find which actions to call for a given request URL. Website authors will typically work with them via subroutine names attributes; a description of dispatch at the attribute/URL level is given in Catalyst::Manual::Intro.
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Called to display info in debug log.
$self->match( $c, $path )
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Returns true if the dispatch type matches the given path
$self->register( $c, $action )
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Takes a context object and a Catalyst::Action object.
Should return true if it registers something, or false otherwise.
$self->uri_for_action( $action, \@captures )
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Takes a Catalyst::Action object and an arrayref of captures, and should return either a URI part which if placed in $c->req->path would cause $self->match to match this action and set $c->req->captures to the supplied arrayref, or undef if unable to do so.
Default fallback, returns nothing. See Catalyst::Dispatcher for more info about expand_action.
