SYNOPSIS

 $value->eval_function('index');

DESCRIPTION

Role used to let a value object get the index or the element name of $self or of a node above.

METHODS

eval_function

Retrieve the index or the element name. Parameters are

 ( function_name , [ up  ])
function_name

element or index

up

Optional parameter to indicate how many level to go up before retrieving the index or element name. Each - is equivalent to a call to parent|Config::Model::Node/parent. Can be repeated dashes ("-", "- -", ...) or a dash with a multiplier ("-", "-2", ...). White spaces are ignored.

compute_string

Perform a similar function as eval_function using a string where function names are extracted.

E.g. compute_string('&element(-)') calls eval_function('element','-')
