DESCRIPTION

This trait provides native delegation methods for array references.

DEFAULT TYPE

If you don't provide an isa value for your attribute, it will default to ArrayRef.

PROVIDED METHODS

  • count

    Returns the number of elements in the array.

      $stuff = Stuff->new;
      $stuff->options( [ "foo", "bar", "baz", "boo" ] );
    
      print $stuff->count_options; # prints 4

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • is_empty

    Returns a boolean value that is true when the array has no elements.

      $stuff->has_no_options ? die "No options!\n" : print "Good boy.\n";

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • elements

    Returns all of the elements of the array as an array (not an array reference).

      my @option = $stuff->all_options;
      print "@options\n";    # prints "foo bar baz boo"

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • get($index)

    Returns an element of the array by its index. You can also use negative index numbers, just as with Perl's core array handling.

      my $option = $stuff->get_option(1);
      print "$option\n";    # prints "bar"

    If the specified element does not exist, this will return undef.

    This method accepts just one argument.

  • pop

    Just like Perl's builtin pop.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • push($value1, $value2, value3 ...)

    Just like Perl's builtin push. Returns the number of elements in the new array.

    This method accepts any number of arguments.

  • shift

    Just like Perl's builtin shift.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • unshift($value1, $value2, value3 ...)

    Just like Perl's builtin unshift. Returns the number of elements in the new array.

    This method accepts any number of arguments.

  • splice($offset, $length, @values)

    Just like Perl's builtin splice. In scalar context, this returns the last element removed, or undef if no elements were removed. In list context, this returns all the elements removed from the array.

    This method requires at least one argument.

  • first( sub { ... } )

    This method returns the first matching item in the array, just like List::Util's first function. The matching is done with a subroutine reference you pass to this method. The subroutine will be called against each element in the array until one matches or all elements have been checked.

      my $found = $stuff->find_option( sub {/^b/} );
      print "$found\n";    # prints "bar"

    This method requires a single argument.

  • first_index( sub { ... } )

    This method returns the index of the first matching item in the array, just like List::MoreUtils's first_index function. The matching is done with a subroutine reference you pass to this method. The subroutine will be called against each element in the array until one matches or all elements have been checked.

    This method requires a single argument.

  • grep( sub { ... } )

    This method returns every element matching a given criteria, just like Perl's core grep function. This method requires a subroutine which implements the matching logic.

      my @found = $stuff->filter_options( sub {/^b/} );
      print "@found\n";    # prints "bar baz boo"

    This method requires a single argument.

  • map( sub { ... } )

    This method transforms every element in the array and returns a new array, just like Perl's core map function. This method requires a subroutine which implements the transformation.

      my @mod_options = $stuff->map_options( sub { $_ . "-tag" } );
      print "@mod_options\n";    # prints "foo-tag bar-tag baz-tag boo-tag"

    This method requires a single argument.

  • reduce( sub { ... } )

    This method turns an array into a single value, by passing a function the value so far and the next value in the array, just like List::Util's reduce function. The reducing is done with a subroutine reference you pass to this method.

      my $found = $stuff->reduce_options( sub { $_[0] . $_[1] } );
      print "$found\n";    # prints "foobarbazboo"

    This method requires a single argument.

  • sort

  • sort( sub { ... } )

    Returns the elements of the array in sorted order.

    You can provide an optional subroutine reference to sort with (as you can with Perl's core sort function). However, instead of using $a and $b in this subroutine, you will need to use $_[0] and $_[1].

      # ascending ASCIIbetical
      my @sorted = $stuff->sort_options();
    
      # Descending alphabetical order
      my @sorted_options = $stuff->sort_options( sub { lc $_[1] cmp lc $_[0] } );
      print "@sorted_options\n";    # prints "foo boo baz bar"

    This method accepts a single argument.

  • sort_in_place

  • sort_in_place( sub { ... } )

    Sorts the array in place, modifying the value of the attribute.

    You can provide an optional subroutine reference to sort with (as you can with Perl's core sort function). However, instead of using $a and $b, you will need to use $_[0] and $_[1] instead.

    This method does not define a return value.

    This method accepts a single argument.

  • shuffle

    Returns the elements of the array in random order, like shuffle from List::Util.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • uniq

    Returns the array with all duplicate elements removed, like uniq from List::MoreUtils.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • join($str)

    Joins every element of the array using the separator given as argument, just like Perl's core join function.

      my $joined = $stuff->join_options(':');
      print "$joined\n";    # prints "foo:bar:baz:boo"

    This method requires a single argument.

  • set($index, $value)

    Given an index and a value, sets the specified array element's value.

    This method returns the value at $index after the set.

    This method requires two arguments.

  • delete($index)

    Removes the element at the given index from the array.

    This method returns the deleted value. Note that if no value exists, it will return undef.

    This method requires one argument.

  • insert($index, $value)

    Inserts a new element into the array at the given index.

    This method returns the new value at $index.

    This method requires two arguments.

  • clear

    Empties the entire array, like @array = ().

    This method does not define a return value.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • accessor($index)

  • accessor($index, $value)

    This method provides a get/set accessor for the array, based on array indexes. If passed one argument, it returns the value at the specified index. If passed two arguments, it sets the value of the specified index.

    When called as a setter, this method returns the new value at $index.

    This method accepts one or two arguments.

  • natatime($n)

  • natatime($n, $code)

    This method returns an iterator which, on each call, returns $n more items from the array, in order, like natatime from List::MoreUtils.

    If you pass a coderef as the second argument, then this code ref will be called on each group of $n elements in the array until the array is exhausted.

    This method accepts one or two arguments.

  • shallow_clone

    This method returns a shallow clone of the array reference. The return value is a reference to a new array with the same elements. It is shallow because any elements that were references in the original will be the same references in the clone.
