NAME

Ace::Browser::SiteDefs - Access to AceBrowser configuration files

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Ace;
  use Ace::Browser::AceSubs;
  use CGI qw(:standard);

  my $configuration = Configuration;
  my $docroot  = $configuration->Docroot;
  my @pictures = @{$configuration->Pictures};
  my %displays = %{$configuration->Displays};
  my $coderef  = $configuration->Url_mapper;
  $coderef->($param1,$param2);



DESCRIPTION

Ace::Browser::SiteDefs evaluates an AceBrowser configuration file and returns a configuration object (config object for short). A config object is a bag of dynamically-generated methods, derived from the scalar variables, arrays, hashes and subroutines in the configuration file.

The config object methods are a canonicalized form of the configuration file variables, in which the first character of the method is uppercase, and subsequent characters are lower case. For example, if the configuration variable was $ROOT, the method will be $config_object->Root.

    Working with Configuration Objects

To fetch a configuration object, use the Ace::Browser::AceSubs Configuration() function. This will return a configuration object for the current database:



  $config_object = Configuration();



Thereafter, it’s just a matter of making the proper method calls.



   If the Configuration file is a....    The method call returns a...
   ----------------------------------    ----------------------------

   Scalar variable                       Scalar
   Array variable                        Array reference
   Hash variable                         Hash reference
   Subroutine                            Code reference



If a variable is not defined, the corresponding method will return undef.
