=head1 NAME
C4::Context - Maintain and manipulate the context of a Koha script
use C4::Context;
use C4::Context("/path/to/koha-conf.xml");
$config_value = C4::Context->config("config_variable");
$koha_preference = C4::Context->preference("preference");
$db_handle = C4::Context->dbh;
$Zconn = C4::Context->Zconn;
$stopwordhash = C4::Context->stopwords;
When a Koha script runs, it makes use of a certain number of things:
configuration settings in F</etc/koha/koha-conf.xml>, a connection to the Koha
databases, and so forth. These things make up the I<context> in which
the script runs.
This module takes care of setting up the context for a script:
figuring out which configuration file to load, and loading it, opening
a connection to the right database, and so forth.
Most scripts will only use one context. They can simply have
use C4::Context;
at the top.
Other scripts may need to use several contexts. For instance, if a
library has two databases, one for a certain collection, and the other
for everything else, it might be necessary for a script to use two
different contexts to search both databases. Such scripts should use
the C<&set_context> and C<&restore_context> functions, below.
By default, C4::Context reads the configuration from
F</etc/koha/koha-conf.xml>. This may be overridden by setting the C<$KOHA_CONF>
environment variable to the pathname of a configuration file to use.
=head1 METHODS

# In addition to what is said in the POD above, a Context object is a
# reference-to-hash with the following fields:
# config
# A reference-to-hash whose keys and values are the
# configuration variables and values specified in the config
# file (/etc/koha/koha-conf.xml).
# dbh
# A handle to the appropriate database for this context.
# dbh_stack
# Used by &set_dbh and &restore_dbh to hold other database
# handles for this context.
# Zconn
# A connection object for the Zebra server
# Koha's main configuration file koha-conf.xml
# is searched for according to this priority list:
# 1. Path supplied via use C4::Context '/path/to/koha-conf.xml'
# 2. Path supplied in KOHA_CONF environment variable.
# 3. Path supplied in INSTALLED_CONFIG_FNAME, as long
# as value has changed from its default of
# '__KOHA_CONF_DIR__/koha-conf.xml', as happens
# when Koha is installed in 'standard' or 'single'
# mode.
# 4. Path supplied in CONFIG_FNAME.
# The first entry that refers to a readable file is used.

=over 4
Reads the specified Koha config file.
Returns an object containing the configuration variables. The object's
structure is a bit complex to the uninitiated ... take a look at the
koha-conf.xml file as well as the XML::Simple documentation for details. Or,
here are a few examples that may give you what you need:
The simple elements nested within the <config> element:
my $pass = $koha->{'config'}->{'pass'};
The <listen> elements:
my $listen = $koha->{'listen'}->{'biblioserver'}->{'content'};
The elements nested within the <server> element:
my $ccl2rpn = $koha->{'server'}->{'biblioserver'}->{'cql2rpn'};
Returns undef in case of error.

In some cases, it might be necessary for a script to use multiple
contexts. C<&set_context> saves the current context on a stack, then
sets the context to C<$context>, which will be used in future
operations. To restore the previous context, use C<&restore_context>.

Looks up the value of the given system preference in the

creates one, and connects to the database.
This database handle is cached for future use: if you call

Creates a new connection to the Koha database for the current context,

# circulation cleaning continued: bufixing
# Revision 1.54 2007/03/29 16:45:53 tipaul
# Code cleaning of (continued)
# All subs have be cleaned :
# - removed useless
# - merged some
# - reordering completly
# - using only naming conventions
# Seems to have broken nothing, but it still has to be heavily tested.
# Note that is now much more efficient than previously & probably more reliable as well.
# Revision 1.53 2007/03/29 13:30:31 tipaul
# Code cleaning :
# == cleaning (useless) ==
# * some sub declaration dropped
# * removed modbiblio sub
# * removed moditem sub
# * removed newitems. It was used only in finishrecieve. Replaced by a TransformKohaToMarc+AddItem, that is better.
# * removed MARCkoha2marcItem
# * removed MARCdelsubfield declaration
# * removed MARCkoha2marcBiblio
# == cleaning (naming conventions) ==
# * MARCgettagslib renamed to GetMarcStructure
# * MARCgetitems renamed to GetMarcItem
# * MARCfind_frameworkcode renamed to GetFrameworkCode
# * MARCmarc2koha renamed to TransformMarcToKoha
# * MARChtml2marc renamed to TransformHtmlToMarc
# * MARChtml2xml renamed to TranformeHtmlToXml
# * zebraop renamed to ModZebra
# == MARC=OFF ==
# * removing MARC=OFF related scripts (in cataloguing directory)
# * removed checkitems (function related to MARC=off feature, that is completly broken in head. If someone want to reintroduce it, hard work coming...)
# * removed getitemsbybiblioitem (used only by MARC=OFF scripts, that is removed as well)

# Using my precrash CVS copy I did the following:
# cvs -z3 co -P koha
# find koha.precrash -type d -name "CVS" -exec rm -v {} \;
# cp -r koha.precrash/* koha/
# cd koha/
# cvs commit
# This should in theory put us right back where we were before the crash

# improving "insecure" management
# you told me that you had some libraries with insecure=ON (behind a firewall).
# In this commit, I created a "fake" user when insecure=ON. It has a fake branch. You may find better to have the 1st branch in branch table instead of a fake one.

# BUG FIXING : using database name in Zconn if defined and not hard coded value
# Revision 2006/10/06 13:47:28 toins
# Synch with dev_week.
# /!\ WARNING :: Please now use the new version of koha.xml.
# Revision 2006/09/24 15:24:06 kados
# remove Zebraauth routine, fold the functionality into Zconn
# Zconn can now take several arguments ... this will probably
# change soon as I'm not completely happy with the readability
# of the current format ... see the POD for details.
# cleaning up, removing unnecessary routines.
# DeleteBiblio - used to delete a biblio from zebra and koha tables
# -- checks to make sure there are no existing issues
# -- saves backups of biblio,biblioitems,items in deleted* tables
# -- does commit operation
# getRecord - used to retrieve one record from zebra in piggyback mode using biblionumber
# brought back z3950_extended_services routine
# Lots of modifications to, you can now store user and pass info for
# multiple servers (for federated searching) using the <serverinfo> element.
# I'll commit my koha.xml to demonstrate this or you can refer to the POD in
# (which I also expanded on).
# Revision 2006/08/10 02:10:21 kados
# Turned warnings on, and running a search turned up lots of warnings.
# Cleaned up those ...
# removed getitemtypes from (one in looks newer)
# removed itemcount from
# made some local subs local with a _ prefix (as they were redefined
# elsewhere)
# Add two new search subs to the start of a new search API
# that's a bit more scalable
# Revision 2006/07/21 17:50:51 kados
# moving the *.properties files to intranetdir/etc dir
# Revision 2006/07/17 08:05:20 tipaul
# there was a hardcoded link to /koha/etc/ I replaced it with intranetdir config value

# adding ccl and cql files ... Tumer, if you want to fit these into the
# config file by all means do.
# Revision 2006/06/04 22:50:33 tgarip1957
# We do not hard code cql2rpn conversion file in our koha.xml configuration file already describes the path for this file.
# At cql searching we use method CQL not CQL2RPN as the cql2rpn conversion file is defined at server level
# Revision 2006/06/02 23:11:24 kados
# Committing my working dev_week. It's been tested only with
# searching, and there's quite a lot of config stuff to set up
# beforehand. As things get closer to a release, we'll be making
# some scripts to do it for us
# Revision 2006/05/28 18:49:12 tgarip1957
# This is an unusual commit. The main purpose is a working model of Zebra on a modified rel2_2.
# Any questions regarding these commits should be asked to Joshua Ferraro unless you are Joshua whom I'll report to
# Revision 1.36 2006/05/09 13:28:08 tipaul
# adding the branchname and the librarian name in every page :
# - modified userenv to add branchname
# - modifier to have the librarian name & userenv displayed on every page. they are in a librarian_information div.
# Revision 1.35 2006/04/13 08:40:11 plg
# bug fixed: typo on Zconnauth name
# Revision 1.34 2006/04/10 21:40:23 tgarip1957
# A new handler defined for zebra Zconnauth with read/write permission. Zconnauth should only be called in where write operations are. Use of this handler will break things unless koha.conf contains new variables:
# zebradb=localhost
# zebraport=<your port>
# zebrauser=<username>
# zebrapass=<password>
# The zebra.cfg file should read:
# perm.anonymous:r
# perm.username:rw
# passw.c:<yourpasswordfile>
# Password file should be prepared with Apaches htpasswd utility in encrypted mode and should exist in a folder zebra.cfg can read
# Revision 1.33 2006/03/15 11:21:56 plg
# bug fixed: utf-8 data where not displayed correctly in screens. Supposing
# your data are truely utf-8 encoded in your database, they should be
# correctly displayed. "set names 'UTF8'" on mysql connection (C4/
# is mandatory and "binmode" to utf8 (C4/Interface/CGI/ seemed to
# converted data twice, so it was removed.
# Revision 1.32 2006/03/03 17:25:01 hdl
# Bug fixing : a line missed a comment sign.
# Revision 1.31 2006/03/03 16:45:36 kados
# Remove the search that tests the Zconn -- warning, still no fault
# tollerance
# Revision 1.30 2006/02/22 00:56:59 kados
# First go at a connection object for Zebra. You can now get a
# connection object by doing:
# my $Zconn = C4::Context->Zconn;
# My initial tests indicate that as soon as your funcion ends
# (ie, when you're done doing something) the connection will be
# closed automatically. There may be some other way to make the
# connection more stateful, I'm not sure...
