NAME

MooseX::Types::Path::Class::MoreCoercions - More powerful coercion than MooseX::Types::Path::Class

VERSION

version 0.003

SYNOPSIS

  ### specification of type constraint with coercion

  package Foo;

  use Moose;
  use MooseX::Types::Path::Class::MoreCoercions qw/File AbsDir/;

  has filename => (
    is => 'ro',
    isa => File,
    coerce => 1,
  );

  has directory => (
    is => 'ro',
    isa => AbsDir,
    coerce => 1,
  );

  ### usage in code

  my $tmp = File::Temp->new;

  Foo->new( filename => $tmp ); # coerced to Path::Class::File
  Foo->new( directory => '.' ); # coerced to dir('.')->absolute

DESCRIPTION

This module extends MooseX::Types::Path::Class with more powerful coercions, including:

  • coercing objects with overloaded stringification
  • coercing to absolute paths

SUBTYPES

This module uses MooseX::Types to define the following subtypes.

Dir

Dir is a subtype of MooseX::Types::Path::Class::Dir. Objects with overloaded stringification are coerced as strings if coercion is enabled.

AbsDir

AbsDir is a subtype of Dir (above). Objects are also coerced to an absolute path.

File

File is a subtype of MooseX::Types::Path::Class::File. Objects with overloaded stringification are coerced as strings if coercion is enabled.

AbsFile

AbsFile is a subtype of File (above). Objects are also coerced to an absolute path.

CAVEATS

Usage with File::Temp

Because an argument is stringified and then coerced into a Path::Class object, no reference to the original File::Temp argument is held. Be sure to hold an external reference to it to avoid immediate cleanup of the object at the end of the enclosing scope.
