Catalyst::DispatchType - DispatchType Base Class
This is an abstract base class for Dispatch Types.
From a code perspective, dispatch types are used to find which actions to call for a given request URL. Website authors will typically work with them via subroutine names attributes; a description of dispatch at the attribute/URL level is given in Catalyst::Manual::Intro.
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Called to display info in debug log.
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Returns true if the dispatch type matches the given path
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Takes a context object and a Catalyst::Action object.
Should return true if it registers something, or false otherwise.
abstract method, to be implemented by dispatchtypes. Takes a Catalyst::Action object and an arrayref of captures, and should return either a URI part which if placed in $c->req->path would cause $self->match to match this action and set $c->req->captures to the supplied arrayref, or undef if unable to do so.
Default fallback, returns nothing. See Catalyst::Dispatcher for more info about expand_action.
