NAME

HTML::Mason::Commands - Old Mason command reference

DESCRIPTION

This was the documentation for the mc_ command set. In Mason 0.8 and beyond, mc_ commands have been replaced by the new HTML::Mason::Request API. e.g.

   mc_comp becomes $m->comp
   mc_file becomes $m->file
   etc.

Below is a description of how to convert your mc_ commands to $m methods. There is also a utility provided with the distribution, bin/convert0.8.pl, that performs these conversions for you. For backwards compatibility mc_ commands still work for a limited time but will eventually go away.

  • mc_abort becomes $m->abort

  • mc_auto_comp becomes $m->fetch_next->path

  • mc_auto_next becomes $m->call_next

  • mc_cache becomes $m->cache

  • mc_cache_self becomes $m->cache_self

  • mc_caller becomes $m->callers(1)->path

  • mc_call_self becomes $m->call_self

  • mc_comp becomes $m->comp

  • mc_comp_exists becomes $m->comp_exists

  • mc_comp_source() becomes $m->current_comp->source_file

  • mc_comp_source(path) becomes $m->fetch_comp(path)->source_file. This no longer works with nonexistent components as it used to.

  • mc_comp_stack becomes map($_->title,$m->callers)

  • mc_date goes away, this was a legacy function. Replace by calling the date formatting function of your choice on $m->time.

  • mc_dhandler_arg becomes $m->dhandler_arg

  • mc_file becomes $m->file

  • mc_file_root becomes $m->file_root

  • mc_out becomes $m->out

  • mc_time becomes $m->time

  • mc_suppress_http_header (with or without argument) no longer has any effect and can simply be removed. See Devel/Sending HTTP Headers for more information.
