NAME

Test2::Compare::Custom - Custom field check for comparisons.

DESCRIPTION

Sometimes you want to do something complicated or unusual when validating a field nested inside a deep data structure. You could pull it out of the structure and test it separately, or you can use this to embed the check. This provides a way for you to write custom checks for fields in deep comparisons.

SYNOPSIS

    my $cus = Test2::Compare::Custom->new(
        name => 'IsRef',
        operator => 'ref(...)',
        code => sub {
            my %args = @_;
            return $args{got} ? 1 : 0;
        },
    );

    # Pass
    is(
        { a => 1, ref => {},   b => 2 },
        { a => 1, ref => $cus, b => 2 },
        "This will pass"
    );

    # Fail
    is(
        {a => 1, ref => 'notref', b => 2},
        {a => 1, ref => $cus,     b => 2},
        "This will fail"
    );

ARGUMENTS

Your custom sub will be passed 4 arguments in a hash:

    code => sub {
        my %args = @_;
        # provides got, exists, operator, name
        return ref($args{got}) ? 1 : 0;
    },

$_ is also localized to got to make it easier for those who need to use regexes.

got
$_

The value to be checked.

exists

This will be a boolean. This will be true if got exists at all. If exists is false then it means got is not simply undef, but doesn't exist at all (think checking the value of a hash key that does not exist).

operator

The operator specified at construction.

name

The name provided at construction.

METHODS

$code = $cus->code

Returns the coderef provided at construction.

$name = $cus->name

Returns the name provided at construction.

$op = $cus->operator

Returns the operator provided at construction.

$bool = $cus->verify(got => $got, exists => $bool)
