NAME

Bio::Graphics::ConfiguratorI - A sectioned map of configuration options (a map of maps), with a default section. Intended to augment existing tag->value semantics (ie. of Bio::AnnotationCollectionI) for object-representation information (eg. foreground color), and for general interface preferences (eg. image width in gbrowse).

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    # get a ConfiguratorI somehow
    my $fg_color = $configurator->get(fgcolor);



DESCRIPTION

This object contains various configuration parameters. It is divided up into sections and tags. This is essentially a multi-level map (section->tag->value). There is also the concept of a default section which is referenced when no section is passed to the ConfiguratorI methods.

APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

    get_sections



 Title   : get_sections
 Usage   : my @values = $configurator->get_sections();
 Function: Returns a list of the valid sections except
           the default or undef.
 Returns : A list of the sections which can be queried.
 Args    : (optional section as string, tag as string)



    get_tags



 Title   : get_tags
 Usage   : my @values = $configurator->get_tags();
           or
           my @values = $configurator->get_tags(dna);
 Function: Returns a list of tags for a given section
           or only the default tags section if no section
           is given.
 Returns : A scalar list of tags
 Args    :



    get



 Title   : get
 Usage   : my $value = $configurator->get(height);
           or
           my $value = $configurator->get(dna,height);
 Function: Returns a tag value from a configurator from the
           either the default "_general" section or from
           a specified section or undef.
 Returns : A scalar value for the tag
 Args    : (optional section as string, tag as string)



    set



 Title   : set
 Usage   : $configurator->set(fgcolor,chartreuse);
           or
           $configurator->set(EST,fgcolor,chartreuse);
 Function: Set a value for a tag
 Returns : The old value of the tag
 Args    : (optional section as string, tag as string, value as scalar)



    get_and_eval



 Title   : get_and_eval
 Usage   : my $value = $configurator->get_and_eval(height);
           or
           my $value = $configurator->get_and_eval(dna,height);
 Function: This works like get() except that it is
           also able to evaluate code references.  These are
           options whose values begin with the characters
           "sub {".  In this case the value will be passed to
           an eval() and the resulting codereference returned.
 Returns : A value of the tag or undef.
 Args    : (optional section as string, tag as string)
