MooseX::Types::Path::Class::MoreCoercions - More powerful coercion than MooseX::Types::Path::Class
### 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
This module extends MooseX::Types::Path::Class with more powerful coercions, including:
coercing objects with overloaded stringification
coercing to absolute paths
This module uses MooseX::Types to define the following subtypes.
Dir is a subtype of
MooseX::Types::Path::Class::Dir. Objects with overloaded stringification are coerced as strings if coercion is enabled.
AbsDir is a subtype of
Dir (above). Objects are also coerced to an absolute path.
File is a subtype of
MooseX::Types::Path::Class::File. Objects with overloaded stringification are coerced as strings if coercion is enabled.
AbsFile is a subtype of
File (above). Objects are also coerced to an absolute path.
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.
