NAME

Data::Object::Regexp::Result - Regexp Result Object for Perl 5

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.59

SYNOPSIS



    use Data::Object::Regexp::Result;

    my $result = Data::Object::Regexp::Result->new([
        $regexp,
        $altered_string,
        $count,
        $last_match_end,
        $last_match_start,
        $named_captures,
        $initial_string
    ]);



DESCRIPTION

Data::Object::Regexp::Result provides routines for introspecting the results of an operation involving a regular expressions. These methods work on data whose shape conforms to the tuple defined in the synopsis.

METHODS

    captures



    # given the expression qr/(.* test)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->captures; # [example test]



The captures method returns the capture groups from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    count



    # given the expression qr/.* test/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->count; # 1



The count method returns the number of match occurrences from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    initial



    # given the expression qr/.* test/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->replace($string, love, g);

    $result->string;  # love matching
    $result->initial; # example test matching



The initial method returns the unaltered string from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    last_match_end



    # given the expression qr/(.* test)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->last_match_end;



The last_match_end method returns an array of offset positions into the string where the capture(s) stopped matching from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    last_match_start



    # given the expression qr/(.* test)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->last_match_start;



The last_match_start method returns an array of offset positions into the string where the capture(s) matched from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    matched



    # given the expression qr/.* test/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->matched; # "example test"



The matched method returns the portion of the string that matched from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    named_captures



    # given the expression qr/(?<stuff>.* test)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->named_captures; # { stuff => "example test" }



The named_captures method returns a hash containing the requested named regular expressions and captured string pairs from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    postmatched



    # given the expression qr/(.* test)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->postmatched; # " matching"



The postmatched method returns the portion of the string after the regular expression matched from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    prematched



    # given the expression qr/(test .*)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->prematched; # "example "



The prematched method returns the portion of the string before the regular expression matched from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    regexp



    # given the expression qr/.* test/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->regexp; # qr/.* test/



The regexp method returns the regular expression used to perform the match from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.

    string



    # given the expression qr/(.* test)/
    # given the string "example test matching"

    $result->string; # "example test matching"



The string method returns the string matched against the regular expression from the result object which contains information about the results of the regular expression operation.
