Data::Sah::Compiler::perl - Compile Sah schema to Perl code


version 0.22


 # see Data::Sah


Derived from Data::Sah::Compiler::Prog.


new() => OBJ

Compilation data

This subclass adds the following compilation data ($cd).

Keys which contain compilation result:

  • module_statements => HASH

    This hash, keyed by module name, lets the Perl compiler differentiate on the different statements to use when loading modules, e.g.:

         "Foo"      => undef,    # or does not exist
         "Bar::Baz" => ['use'],
         "Qux"      => ['use', []],
         "Quux"     => ['use', ["'a'", 123]],
         "warnings" => ['no'],

    will lead to these codes (in the order specified by $cd->{modules}, BTW) being generated:

     require Foo;
     use Bar::Baz;
     use Qux ();
     use Quux ('a', 123);
     no warnings;

$c->comment($cd, @args) => STR

Generate a comment. For example, in perl compiler:

 $c->comment($cd, "123"); # -> "# 123\n"

Will return an empty string if compile argument comment is set to false.

$c->compile(%args) => RESULT

Aside from Prog's arguments, this class supports these arguments:

$c->add_use($cd, $module, \@imports)

This is like add_module(), but indicate that $module needs to be use-d in the generated code (for example, Perl pragmas). Normally if add_module() is used, the generated code will use require.

If you use $c->add_use($cd, 'foo'), this code will be generated:

 use foo;

If you use $c->add_use($cd, 'foo', ["'a'", "'b'", "123"]), this code will be generated:

 use foo ('a', 'b', 123);

If you use $c->add_use($cd, 'foo', []), this code will be generated:

 use foo ();

The generated statement will be added at the top (top-level lexical scope) and duplicates are ignored. To generate multiple and lexically-scoped use and no statements, e.g. like below, currently you can generate them manually:

 if (blah) {
     no warnings;

$c->add_no($cd, $module)

This is the counterpart of add_use(), to generate <no foo> statement.

See also: add_use().


Equivalent to:

 $c->add_use($cd, 'experimental', ["'smartmatch'"]);


To generate expression code that says "all subexpression must be true", you can do:

 !defined(List::Util::first(sub { blah($_) }, "value", ...))

This is a bit harder to read than:

 !grep { !blah($_) } "value", ...

but has the advantage of the ability to shortcut on the first item that fails.

Similarly, to say "at least one subexpression must be true":

 defined(List::Util::first(sub { blah($_) }, "value", ...))

which can shortcut in contrast to:

 grep { blah($_) } "value", ...
