NAME

HTML::Mason::Resolver::File - Component path resolver for file-based components

SYNOPSIS

  my $resolver = HTML::Mason::Resolver::File->new( comp_root => '/var/www/mason' );

  my $info = $resolver->get_info('/some/comp.html');
  my $comp_root = $resolver->comp_root;

DESCRIPTION

This HTML::Mason::Resolver subclass is used when components are stored on the filesystem, which is the norm for most Mason-based applications.

PARAMETERS TO THE new() CONSTRUCTOR

The new method takes a single mandatory parameter, comp_root.

comp_root

The component root marks the top of your component hierarchy and defines how component paths are translated into real file paths. For example, if your component root is /usr/local/httpd/docs, a component path of /products/index.html translates to the file /usr/local/httpd/docs/products/index.html.

Under Apache and CGI, comp_root defaults to the server's document root. In standalone mode comp_root defaults to the current working directory.

This parameter may be either a scalar or an array reference. If it is a scalar, it should be a filesystem path indicating the component root. If it is an array reference, it should be of the following form:

 [ [ key1 => '/path/to/root' ],
   [ key2 => '/path/to/other/root' ] ]

The "keys" for each path must be unique names and their "values" must be filesystem paths. These paths will be searched in the provided order whenever a component path must be resolved to a filesystem path.

ADDITIONAL METHODS

comp_root

This method returns the component root, which will either be a scalar or an array reference, as documented here.

comp_root_array

Returns the component root as an array of name/path pairs. Can be used like the following:

  foreach my $pair ($self->comp_root_array) {
    my ($name, $path) = @$pair;
    ...
  }
