Map a virtual path to an actual one
NAME Path::Mapper - Map a virtual path to an actual one VERSION version 0.012 SYNOPSIS my $mapper = Path::Mapper->new( base => '../' ) $mapper->map( a/b => /apple ) $mapper->dir( /a/b/xyzzy/ ) # /apple/xyzzy $mapper->dir( /a/bxyzzy/ ) # ../a/bxyzzy DESCRIPTION Path::Mapper will map a virtual path to an actual one, doing a substitution based on the deepest common directory Think of it as doing something like symbolic link resolution (though not exactly) USAGE Path::Mapper->new( [ base => <base> ] ) Create a new "Path::Mapper" object using <base> as the 'root' directory (by default, everything is mapped to be under that directory) $mapper->base( <base> ) Change the base directory for $mapper to <base> $mapper->map( <virtual> => <actual> ) Set up a map from <virtual> and anything under (e.g. <virtual>/*) to map to the <actual> prefix instead of the usual base $mapper->map( <path> ) Return a 2-element list containing the actual base for this path and the path remainder. You probably don't want/need to use this method $mapper->dir( <path> ) Map the virtual <path> to an actual one and return the result as a Path::Class::Dir object $mapper->file( <path> ) Map the virtual <path> to an actual one and return the result as a Path::Class::File object $mapper->path( <path> ) Map the virtual <path> to an actual one and return the result as a Path::Abstract object AUTHOR Robert Krimen <email@example.com> COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE This software is copyright (c) 2010 by Robert Krimen.
