NAME

Moose::Meta::Attribute::Native::Trait::String - Helper trait for Str attributes

VERSION

version 2.1202

SYNOPSIS

  package MyHomePage;
  use Moose;

  has 'text' => (
      traits  => ['String'],
      is      => 'rw',
      isa     => 'Str',
      default => q{},
      handles => {
          add_text     => 'append',
          replace_text => 'replace',
      },
  );

  my $page = MyHomePage->new();
  $page->add_text("foo");    # same as $page->text($page->text . "foo");

DESCRIPTION

This trait provides native delegation methods for strings.

DEFAULT TYPE

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

PROVIDED METHODS

  • inc

    Increments the value stored in this slot using the magical string autoincrement operator. Note that Perl doesn't provide analogous behavior in --, so dec is not available. This method returns the new value.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • append($string)

    Appends to the string, like .=, and returns the new value.

    This method requires a single argument.

  • prepend($string)

    Prepends to the string and returns the new value.

    This method requires a single argument.

  • replace($pattern, $replacement)

    Performs a regexp substitution ("s" in perlop). There is no way to provide the g flag, but code references will be accepted for the replacement, causing the regex to be modified with a single e. /smxi can be applied using the qr operator. This method returns the new value.

    This method requires two arguments.

  • match($pattern)

    Runs the regex against the string and returns the matching value(s).

    This method requires a single argument.

  • chop

    Just like "chop" in perlfunc. This method returns the chopped character.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • chomp

    Just like "chomp" in perlfunc. This method returns the number of characters removed.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • clear

    Sets the string to the empty string (not the value passed to default).

    This method does not have a defined return value.

    This method does not accept any arguments.

  • length

    Just like "length" in perlfunc, returns the length of the string.

  • substr

    This acts just like "substr" in perlfunc. When called as a writer, it returns the substring that was replaced, just like the Perl builtin.

    This method requires at least one argument, and accepts no more than three.
