NAME

Config::Objective::String - string data type class for Config::Objective

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use Config::Objective;
  use Config::Objective::String;

  my $conf = Config::Objective->new(filename, {
                        stringobj     => Config::Objective::String->new()
                });



DESCRIPTION

The <B>Config::Objective::StringB> module provides a class that represents a string value in an object so that it can be used with <B>Config::ObjectiveB>. Its methods can be used to manipulate the encapsulated string value from the config file.

The <B>Config::Objective::StringB> class is derived from the <B>Config::Objective::DataTypeB> class, but it defines/overrides the following methods:
set() Sets the object’s value to its argument. The value must be a scalar.

If the object was created with the value_abspath attribute enabled, the value must be an absolute path string.

If the object was created with the value_optional attribute enabled, the argument is optional; if missing, an empty string will be used instead.

append() Appends its argument to the object’s value using string concatenation.
prepend() Prepends its argument to the object’s value using string concatenation.
gsub() For each substring matching the first argument in the object’s value, substitutes the second argument.
equals() Returns true if the argument equals the object’s value. The comparison is done using the perl eq operator.
match() Returns true if the object’s value matches the argument. The comparison is done using the argument as a case-insensitive regular expression.
