Manual Reference Pages - TEXT::RECORDPARSER::OBJECT (3)
Text::RecordParser::Object - read delimited text files as objects
my $o = $p->fetchrow_object;
my $name = $o->name;
Just call fetchrow_object on a Text::RecordParser object to instantiate
This module extends the idea of how you interact with delimited text
files, allowing you to enforce field names and identify field aliases
easily. That is, if you are using the fetchrow_hashref method to
read each line, you may misspell the hash key and introduce a bug in
your code. With this module, Perl will throw an error if you attempt
to read a field not defined in the files headers. Additionally, any
defined field aliases will be created as additional accessor methods.
As much as I like the full encapsulation of inside-out objects (e.g.,
as described in _Perl Best Practies_ by Damian Conway and provided by
Class::Std), I couldnt figure out a way to dynamically create the
class at runtime. Besides, I figure this interface is only for those
who want to use the overhead of objects to enforce policy. If you use
this module and still access the hash underneath the object, I cant
really help you.
