NAME

Perinci::Examples::SubMeta - Test argument submetadata

VERSION

This document describes version 0.813 of Perinci::Examples::SubMeta (from Perl distribution Perinci-Examples), released on 2019-06-29.

DESCRIPTION

Argument submetadata is introduced in Rinci 1.1.55, mainly to support (complex) form. With this, you can submit a complex form (one that has subforms) to a function. The function will receive the form submission as a nested data structure.

To add an argument submetadata, you specify a hash argument with a meta property, or an array argument with element_meta property. The value of the property is another Rinci function metadata.

FUNCTIONS

register_donors

Usage:

 register_donors(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Register donor(s).

This example function registers one or more blood donors. For each donor, you need to specify at least the name, gender, age, and blood type.

In the command-line, you can specify them as follow:

 % register-donors --date 2014-10-11 \
     --donor-name Ujang --donor-age 31 --donor-male --donor-t A \
     --donor-name Ita   --donor-age 25 --donor-F    --donor-t O \
       --donor-note Tentative \
     --donor-name Eep   --donor-age 37 --donor-male --donor-t B

Actually, this function just returns its arguments. This function demonstrates argument element submetadata.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • date* => date

    Planned donation date.

  • donor* => array

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

register_student

Usage:

 register_student(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Register a student to a class.

This example function registers a student to a class. You specify the student's name, gender, and age, as well as the desired class to register to. You can only register one student at a time.

Actually, this function just returns its arguments.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):
