NAME

Moose::Cookbook::Snack::Types - Snippets of code for using Types and Type Constraints

VERSION

version 2.0205

SYNOPSIS

  package Point;
  use Moose;

  has 'x' => ( isa => 'Int', is => 'ro' );
  has 'y' => ( isa => 'Int', is => 'rw' );

  package main;
  use Try::Tiny;

  my $point = try {
      Point->new( x => 'fifty', y => 'forty' );
  }
  catch {
      print "Oops: $_";
  };

  my $point;
  my $xval             = 'forty-two';
  my $xattribute       = Point->meta->find_attribute_by_name('x');
  my $xtype_constraint = $xattribute->type_constraint;

  if ( $xtype_constraint->check($xval) ) {
      $point = Point->new( x => $xval, y => 0 );
  }
  else {
      print "Value: $xval is not an " . $xtype_constraint->name . "\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION

This is the Point example from Moose::Cookbook::Basics::Recipe1 with type checking added.

If we try to assign a string value to an attribute that is an Int, Moose will die with an explicit error message. The error will include the attribute name, as well as the type constraint name and the value which failed the constraint check.

We use Try::Tiny to catch this error message.

Later, we get the Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint object from a Moose::Meta::Attribute and use the Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint to check a value directly.
