Object helper for Object::Permission using unix groups.


	use Object::Permission::Group; # $*AUTH-USER is derived from $*USER

   # Or:

   Use Object::Permission::Group;

	# Set $*AUTH-USER to one for a specified user
   $*AUTH-USER = Object::Permission::Group.new(user => 'wibble');


This provides a simple implementation of Object::Permission::User to be used with Object::Permission which derives the permissions for the $*AUTH-USER from the users unix group membership.

By default $*AUTH-USER is initialised based on the value of $*USER (i.e. the effective user,) but it can be set manually with the permissions of an arbitrary user (as in the second example above.)


Assuming you have a working Rakudo Perl 6 installation you should be able to install this with panda :

# From the source directory

panda install .

# Remote installation

panda install Object::Permission::Group

There is no reason to believe this shouldn't work with zef as well.
