SYNOPSIS



 package Config::Model::Backend::Foo ;

 extends Config::Model::Backend::Any;

 # optional
 sub suffix {
   return .foo;
 }

 # mandatory
 sub read {
    my $self = shift ;
    my %args = @_ ;

    # args are:
    # root       => ./my_test,  # fake root directory, userd for tests
    # config_dir => /etc/foo,    # absolute path
    # file       => foo.conf,   # file name
    # file_path  => ./my_test/etc/foo/foo.conf
    # io_handle  => $io           # IO::File object
    # check      => yes|no|skip

DESCRIPTION

This Mouse class is to be inherited by other backend plugin classes

See read callback in Config::Model::BackendMgr and write callback in Config::Model::BackendMgr for more details on the method that must be provided by any backend classes.

CONSTRUCTOR

new ( node => CW$node_obj, name => backend_name )

The constructor should be used only by Config::Model::Node.

Methods to override

    annotation

Whether the backend supports reading and writing annotation (a.k.a comments). Default is 0. Override this method to return 1 if your backend supports annotations.

    suffix

Suffix of the configuration file. This method returns undef

    read

Read the configuration file. This method must be overridden.

    write

Write the configuration file. This method must be overridden.

Methods

    node

Return the node (a Config::Model::Node) holding this backend.

    instance

Return the instance (a Config::Model::Instance) holding this configuration.

    show_message( string )

Show a message to STDOUT (unless overridden). Delegated to show_message( string ) in Config::Model::Instance.

    read_global_comments( lines , comment_char)

Read the global comments (i.e. the first block of comments until the first blank or non comment line) and store them as root node annotation. The first parameter (lines)
is an array ref containing file lines.

    associates_comments_with_data ( lines , comment_char)

This method will extract comments from the passed lines and associate them with actual data found in the file lines. Data is associated with comments preceding or on the same line as the data. Returns a list of [ data, comment ] .

Example:



  # Foo comments
  foo= 1
  Baz = 0 # Baz comments



will return



  ( [  foo= 1, Foo comments  ] , [ Baz = 0 , Baz comments ] )



    write_global_comments( io_handle , comment_char)

Write global comments from configuration root annotation into the io_handle (if defined). Returns the string written to the io_handle.

    write_data_and_comments( io_handle , comment_char , data1, comment1, data2, comment2 ...)

Write data and comments in the io_handle (if defined). Comments are written before the data. Returns the string written to the io_handle. If a data is undef, the comment will be written on its own line.
