NAME

App::Followme::ConfiguredObject - Base class for App::Followme classes

SYNOPSIS

    use App::Followme::ConfiguredObject;
    my $obj = App::Followme::ConfiguredObjects->new($configuration);

DESCRIPTION

This class creates a new configured object. All classes in App::Followme are subclassed from it. The new method creates a new object and initializes the parameters from the configuration file.

$obj = ConfiguredObject->new($configuration);

Create a new object from the configuration. The configuration is a reference to a hash containing fields with the same names as the object parameters. Fields in the configuration whose name does not match an object parameter are ignored. If a configuration field ends in "_pkg", its value is assumed to be the name of a subpackage, which is is created and stored in a field whose name is stripped of the "_pkg" suffix.

%parameters = $self->parameters();

Returns a hash of the default values of the object's parameters.

$self->setup(%configuration);

Sets those parameters of the object which are computed when the object is initialized.

CONFIGURATION

The following fields in the configuration file are used in this class and every class based on it:

base_directory

case_sensitvity

Boolean flag that indicates if filenames on this operating system are case sensitive. The default value is false.

quick_mode

A flag indicating application is run in quick mode.

top_directory

The top directory of the website. The default value is the current directory.
