=head1 DESCRIPTION

This module provides an object that holds a configuration tree.

=head1 CONSTRUCTOR

An instance object is created by calling L<instance
method|Config::Model/"Configuration instance"> on an existing
model. This model can be specified by its application name:

 my $inst = $model->instance (
   # run 'cme list' to get list of applications
   application => 'foo',
   # optional
   instance_name => 'test1'
 );

 my $inst = $model->instance (
   root_class_name => 'SomeRootClass',
   instance_name => 'test1'
 );

The directory (or directories) holding configuration files is
specified within the configuration model. For test purpose you can
change the "root" directory with C<root_dir> parameter.

Constructor parameters are:

=over

=item root_dir

Pseudo root directory where to read I<and> write configuration
files (L<Path::Tiny> object or string). Configuration directory
specified in model or with C<config_dir> option is appended to this
root directory

=item root_path

L<Path::Tiny> object created with C<root_dir> value or with current
directory if C<root_dir> is empty.

=item config_dir

Directory to read or write configuration file. This parameter must be
supplied if not provided by the configuration model. (string)

=item backend

Specify which backend to use. See L</write_back> for details

=item backend_arg

Specify a backend argument that may be retrieved by some
backend. Instance is used as a relay and does not use this data.

=item check

Specify whether to check value while reading config files. Either:

=over

=item yes

Check value and throws an error for bad values.

=item skip

Check value and skip bad value.

=item no

Do not check.

=back

=item canonical

When true: write config data back using model order. By default, write
items back using the order found in the configuration file. This
feature is experimental and not supported by all backends.

=item on_change_cb

Call back this function whenever C<notify_change> is called. Called with
arguments: C<< name => <root node element name>, index => <index_value> >>

=item on_message_cb

Call back this function when L<show_message> is called. By default,
messages are displayed on STDOUT.

=item error_paths

Returns a list of tree items that currently have an error.

=item error_messages

Returns a list of error messages from the tree content.

=back

Note that the root directory specified within the configuration model
is overridden by C<root_dir> parameter.

If you need to load configuration data that are not correct, you can
use C<< force_load => 1 >>. Then, wrong data are discarded (equivalent to
C<< check => 'no' >> ).

=head1 METHODS

=head2 Manage configuration data

=head2 modify

Calls L</"load"> and then L</save>.

Takes the same parameter as C<load> plus C<force_write> to force
saving configuration file even if no value was modified (default is 0)

=head2 load

Load configuration tree with configuration data. See
L<Config::Model::Loader/"load"> for parameters.
Returns <$self>.

=head2 save

Save the content of the configuration tree to
configuration files. (See L</write_back> for more details)

Use C<< force => 1 >> option to force saving configuration data.

=head2 config_root

Returns the L<root object|Config::Model::Node> of the configuration tree.

=head2 apply_fixes

Scan the tree and apply fixes that are attached to warning specifications. 
See C<warn_if_match> or C<warn_unless_match> in L<Config::Model::Value/>.

=head2 deep_check

Scan the tree and deep check on all elements that support this. Currently only hash or
list element have this feature.

=head2 needs_save

Returns 1 (or more) if the instance contains data that needs to be
saved. I.e some change were done in the tree that needs to be saved.

=head2 list_changes

In list context, returns a array ref of strings describing the changes. 
In scalar context, returns a big string. Useful to print.

=head2 say_changes

Print all changes on STDOUT and return the list of changes.

=head2 clear_changes

Clear list of changes. Note that changes pending in the configuration
tree is not affected. This clears only the list shown to user. Use
only for tests.

=head2 has_warning

Returns the number of warning found in the elements of this configuration instance.

=head2 update

Parameters: C<< ( quiet => (0|1), %args ) >>

Try to run update command on all nodes of the configuration tree. Node
without C<update> method are ignored. C<update> prints a message
otherwise (unless C<quiet> is true).

=head2 grab

Use the steps parameter to retrieve and returns an object from the
configuration tree.  Forwarded to L<Config::Model::Role::Grab/grab>

=head2 grab_value

Use the steps parameter to retrieve and returns the value of a leaf
object from the configuration tree.  Forwarded to
L<Config::Model::Role::Grab/grab_value>

=head2 searcher

Returns an object dedicated to search an element in the configuration
model.

This method returns a L<Config::Model::Searcher> object. See
L<Config::Model::Searcher> for details on how to handle a search.

=head2 iterator 

This method returns a L<Config::Model::Iterator> object. See
L<Config::Model::Iterator> for details.

Arguments are explained in  L<Config::Model::Iterator>
L<constructor arguments|Config::Model::Iterator/"Creating an iterator">.

=head2 application

Returns the application name of the instance. (E.g C<popcon>, C<dpkg> ...)

=head2 wizard_helper

Deprecated. Call L</iterator> instead.

=head1 Internal methods

=head2 name

Returns the instance name.

=head2 read_check

Returns which kind of check is performed while reading configuration
files. (see C<check> parameter in L</CONSTRUCTOR> section)

=head2 show_message

Parameters: C<( string )>

Display the message on STDOUT unless a custom function was passed to
C<on_message_cb> parameter.

=head2 reset_config

Destroy current configuration tree (with data) and returns a new tree with
data (and annotations) loaded from disk.

=head2 config_model

Returns the model (L<Config::Model> object) of the configuration tree.

=head2 annotation_saver

Returns the object loading and saving annotations. See
L<Config::Model::Annotation> for details.

=head2 preset_start

All values stored in preset mode are shown to the user as default
values. This feature is useful to enter configuration data entered by
an automatic process (like hardware scan)

=head2 preset_stop

Stop preset mode

=head2 preset

Get preset mode

=head2 preset_clear

Clear all preset values stored.

=head2 layered_start

All values stored in layered mode are shown to the user as default
values. This feature is useful to enter configuration data entered by
an automatic process (like hardware scan)

=head2 layered_stop

Stop layered mode

=head2 layered

Get layered mode

=head2 layered_clear

Clear all layered values stored.

=head2 get_data_mode

Returns 'normal' or 'preset' or 'layered'. Does not take into account
initial_load.

=head2 initial_load_start

Start initial_load mode. This mode tracks the first modifications of
the tree done with data read from the configuration file.

Instance is built with initial_load as 1. Read backend clears this
value once the first read is done.

Other modifications, when initial_load is zero, are assumed to be user
modifications.

=head2 initial_load_stop

Stop initial_load mode. Instance is built with initial_load as 1. Read backend
clears this value once the first read is done.

=head2 initial_load

Get initial_load mode

=head2 data

This method provides a way to store some arbitrary data in the
instance object.

E.g:

  $instance->data(foo => 'bar');

Later:

  my $foo = $instance->data('foo'); # $foo contains 'bar'

=head1 Read and write backend features

Usually, a program based on config model must first create the
configuration model, then load all configuration data. 

This feature enables you to declare with the model a way to load
configuration data (and to write it back). See
L<Config::Model::BackendMgr> for details.

=head2 backend

Get the preferred backend method for this instance (as passed to the
constructor).

=head2 backend_arg

Get L<cme> command line argument that may be used by the backend to
get the configuration file. These method is typically used in the read
and write method of a backend to know where is the configuration file
to edit.

=head2 root_dir

Returns a L<Path::Tiny> object for the root directory where
configuration data is read from or written to.

=head2 root_path

Same as C<root_dir>

=head2 register_write_back

Parameters: C<( node_location )>

Register a node path that is called back with
C<write_back> method.

=head2 notify_change

Notify that some data has changed in the tree. See
L<Config::Model::AnyThing/notify_change> for more details.

=head2 write_back

In summary, save the content of the configuration tree to
configuration files.

In more details, C<write_back> trie to run all subroutines registered
with C<register_write_back> to write the configuration information.
(See L<Config::Model::BackendMgr> for details).

You can specify here another config directory to write configuration
data back with C<config_dir> parameter. This overrides the model
specifications.

C<write_back> croaks if no write call-back are known.

Use C<< force => 1 >> option to force saving configuration data. This
is useful to write back a file even no change are done at semantic
level, i.e. to reformat a file or remove unnecessary data.
