HTML::Mason::ComponentSource - represents information about an component
my $info = $resolver->get_info($comp_path);
Mason uses the ComponentSource class to store information about a source
component, one that has yet to be compiled.
- This method takes the following arguments:
The component's component path.
This is the last modification time for the component, in Unix time (seconds
since the epoch).
This is a unique id for the component used to distinguish two components
with the same name in different component roots.
If your resolver does not support multiple component roots, this can simply
be the same as the "comp_path" key or it can be any other id you
This value will be used when constructing filesystem paths so it needs to be
something that works on different filesystems. If it contains forward
slashes, these will be converted to the appropriate filesystem-specific
In fact, we encourage you to make sure that your component ids have some
forward slashes in them or also all of your generated object files
will end up in a single directory, which could affect performance.
The component class into which this particular component should be blessed
when it is created. This must be a subclass of
"HTML::Mason::Component", which is the default.
This is used when displaying error messages related to the component, like
parsing errors. This should be something that will help whoever sees the
message identify the component. For example, for component stored on the
filesystem, this should be the absolute path to the component.
This is a subroutine reference which, when called, returns the component
The reasoning behind using this parameter is that it helps avoid a profusion
of tiny little "HTML::Mason::ComponentSource" subclasses that
don't do very much.
This optional parameter should be a hash reference. It is used to pass
information from the resolver to the component class.
This is needed since a "HTML::Mason::Resolver" subclass and a
"HTML::Mason::Component" subclass can be rather tightly coupled,
but they must communicate with each through the interpreter (this may
change in the future).
- These are all simple accessors that return the value given to the
