NAME

JSON::Pointer - A Perl implementation of JSON Pointer (RFC6901)

CONTENTS

VERSION

This document describes JSON::Pointer version 0.07.

SYNOPSIS



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $obj = {
    foo => 1,
    bar => [ { qux => "hello" }, 3 ],
    baz => { boo => [ 1, 3, 5, 7 ] }
  };

  JSON::Pointer->get($obj, "/foo");       ### $obj->{foo}
  JSON::Pointer->get($obj, "/bar/0");     ### $obj->{bar}[0]
  JSON::Pointer->get($obj, "/bar/0/qux"); ### $obj->{bar}[0]{qux}
  JSON::Pointer->get($obj, "/bar/1");     ### $obj->{bar}[1]
  JSON::Pointer->get($obj, "/baz/boo/2"); ### $obj->{baz}{boo}[2]



DESCRIPTION

This library is implemented JSON Pointer (<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6901>) and some useful operator from JSON Patch (<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6902>).

JSON Pointer is available to identify a specified value in JSON document, and it is simillar to XPath. Please read the both of specifications for details.

METHODS

get($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$pointer :Str, CW$strict :Int) :Scalar

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
$strict :Int Strict mode. When this value equals true value, this method may throw exception on error. When this value equals false value, this method return undef value on error.
Get specified value identified by $pointer from $document. For example,



  use JSON::Pointer;
  print JSON::Pointer->get({ foo => 1, bar => { "qux" => "hello" } }, "/bar/qux"); ### hello



get_relative($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$current_pointer :Str, CW$relative_pointer :Str, CW$strict :Int) :Scalar

This method is highly EXPERIMENTAL. Because this method depends on <http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-luff-relative-json-pointer-00> draft spec.
$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$current_pointer : Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified current position in the document.
$relative_pointer : Str JSON Relative Pointer string to identify specified value from current position in the document
$strict :Int Strict mode. When this value equals true value, this method may throw exception on error. When this value equals false value, this method return undef value on error.

contains($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$pointer :Str) :Int

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to present by JSON format.
$pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
Return which the target location identified by $pointer exists or not in the $document.



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = { foo => 1 };
  if (JSON::Pointer->contains($document, "/foo")) {
    print "/foo exists";
  }



add($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$pointer :Str, CW$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar) :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar The perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
Add specified $value on target location identified by $pointer in the $document. For example,



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = +{ foo => 1, };
  my $value = +{ qux => "hello" };

  my $patched_document = JSON::Pointer->add($document, "/bar", $value);
  print $patched_document->{bar}{qux}; ### hello



remove($document, CW$pointer) :Array/Scalar

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
Remove target location identified by $pointer in the $document.



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = { foo => 1 };
  my $patched_document = JSON::Pointer->remove($document, "/foo");
  unless (exists $patched_document->{foo}) {
    print "removed /foo";
  }



This method is contextial return value. When the return value of wantarray equals true, return $patched_document and $removed_value, or not return $patched_document only.

replace($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$pointer :Str, CW$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar) :Array/HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar The perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
Replace the value of target location specified by $pointer to the $value in the $document.



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = { foo => 1 };
  my $patched_document = JSON::Pointer->replace($document, "/foo", 2);
  print $patched_document->{foo}; ## 2



This method is contextial return value. When the return value of wantarray equals true, return $patched_document and $replaced_value, or not return $patched_document only.

set($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$pointer :Str, CW$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar) :Array/HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar

This method is alias of replace method.

copy($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$from_pointer :Str, CW$to_pointer :Str) :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$from_pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
$to_pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
Copy the value identified by $from_pointer to target location identified by $to_pointer. For example,



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = +{ foo => [ { qux => "hello" } ], bar => [ 1 ] };
  my $patched_document = JSON::Pointer->copy($document, "/foo/0/qux", "/bar/-");
  print $patched_document->{bar}[1]; ## hello



Note that - notation means next of last element in the array. In this example, - means 1.

move($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$from_pointer :Str, CW$to_pointer :Str) :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$from_pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
$to_pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
Move the value identified by $from_pointer to target location identified by $to_pointer. For example,



  use JSON;
  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = +{ foo => [ { qux => "hello" } ], bar => [ 1 ] };
  my $patched_document = JSON::Pointer->move($document, "/foo/0/qux", "/bar/-");
  print encode_json($patched_document); ## {"bar":[1,"hello"],"foo":[{}]}



test($document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar, CW$pointer :Str, CW$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar) :Int

$document :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar Target perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
$pointer :Str JSON Pointer string to identify specified value in the document.
$value :HashRef/ArrayRef/Scalar The perl data structure that is able to be presented by JSON format.
Return which the value identified by $pointer equals $value or not in the $document. This method distinguish type of each values.



  use JSON::Pointer;

  my $document = { foo => 1 };

  print JSON::Pointer->test($document, "/foo", 1); ### 1
  print JSON::Pointer->test($document, "/foo", "1"); ### 0



traverse($document, CW$pointer, CW$opts) : JSON::Pointer::Context

This method is used as internal implementation only.
