NAME

Perinci::Class::Base - Base class for your Rinci-metadata-containing classes

VERSION

This document describes version 0.001 of Perinci::Class::Base (from Perl distribution Perinci-Class-Base), released on 2020-02-14.

SYNOPSIS

In My/Animal.pm:

 package My::Animal;
 use parent 'Perinci::Class::Base';
 
 our %SPEC;
 
 $SPEC{speak} = {
     v => 1.1,
     is_meth => 1,
 };
 sub speak {
     die "Please override me!";
 }
 
 sub new {
     my ($package, %args) = @_;
     bless \%args, $package;
 }
 
 1;

In My/Dog.pm:

 package My::Dog;
 use parent 'My::Animal';
 
 our %SPEC;
 
 # speak's metadata will "inherit" (use metadata from the base class), since we
 # don't have additionl/modified/removed arguments, etc.
 
 sub speak {
     print "woof\n";
     [200];
 }
 
 $SPEC{play_dead} = {
     v => 1.1,
     is_meth => 1,
     args => {
         seconds => {schema=>'uint*', default=>5},
     },
 };
 sub play_dead {
     my ($self, %args) = @_;
     sleep $;
     [200];
 }
 
 1;

in My/Parrot.pm:

 package My::Parrot;
 use parent 'My::Animal';
 
 our %SPEC;
 
 # we are modifying 'speak' metadata as we add an argument.
 $SPEC{speak} = {
     v => 1.,
     is_meth => 1,
     args => {
         word => {schema=>'str*'},
     },
 };
 sub speak {
     my ($self, $word) = @_;
     print "squawk! $word!\n";
     [200];
 }
 
 1;

To get Rinci metadata for a method:

 use My::Dog;
 my $meta = My::Dog->get_rinci_meta_for('speak');

A more convenient syntax to define modified method metadata in My/Dog.pm (the second argument will be merged using Data::ModeMerge):

 __PACKAGE__->modify_rinci_meta_for(speak => {
     args => {
         word => {schema=>'str*'},
     },,
  });
