NAME

Acme::Marvel::CinematicUniverse::Characters - example of distributing instance data on CPAN

SYNOPSIS

  use Acme::Marvel::CinematicUniverse::Characters;
  
  say for Acme::Marvel::CinematicUniverse::Characters->find('tony');

DESCRIPTION

This module is primarily intended as an example of how to distribute instances of objects on CPAN.

It uses characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999) rather than the comic book universe, though power grid data is taken from the Marvel wiki, and mostly based on the comic books. It currently only includes the six core characters from Marvel's The Avengers (1992), also known as Avengers Assemble in the UK and Ireland.

Methods

characters

Returns a list of all known characters. In scalar context, returns the count of characters.

Characters are Acme::Marvel::CinematicUniverse::Character objects.

find($needle)

Given a string or regexp to search for, searches for a character by name, returning all the results as a list. In scalar context, returns the first match, which may or may not be the "best" match.

Strings given as search terms are treated case-insensitively. Regexps are used as-is, so may or may not be case-sensitive.

Characters are Acme::Marvel::CinematicUniverse::Character objects.

instance_modules

Returns a list of modules that have been used to find character data.

load_character($character)

Used by instance modules to load characters.
