MooseX::Types::Path::Class::MoreCoercions - Coerce stringable objects to work with MooseX::Types::Path::Class
### specification of type constraint with coercion package Foo; use Moose; use MooseX::Types::Path::Class::MoreCoercions qw/File/; has filename => ( is => 'ro', isa => 'File', coerce => 1, ); ### usage in code my $tmp = File::Temp->new; Foo->new( filename => $tmp ); # coerced to Path::Class::File
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.
File is a subtype of
MooseX::Types::Path::Class::File. Objects with overloaded stringification are coerced as strings if coercion is enabled.
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.
