NAME

       BSON::Bytes - BSON type wrapper for binary byte strings

VERSION

       version v1.10.2

SYNOPSIS

           use BSON::Types ':all';

           $bytes = bson_bytes( $bytestring );
           $bytes = bson_bytes( $bytestring, $subtype );

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides a BSON type wrapper for binary data represented as a string of bytes.

ATTRIBUTES

   data
       A scalar, interpreted as bytes.  (I.e. "character" data should be encoded to bytes.)  It
       defaults to the empty string.

   subtype
       A numeric BSON subtype between 0 and 255.  This defaults to 0 and generally should not be
       modified.  Subtypes 128 to 255 are "user-defined".

METHODS

   TO_JSON
       Returns Base64 encoded string equivalent to the data attribute.

       If the "BSON_EXTJSON" option is true, it will instead be compatible with MongoDB's
       extended JSON <https://github.com/mongodb/specifications/blob/master/source/extended-
       json.rst> format, which represents it as a document as follows:

           {"$binary" : { "base64": "<base64 data>", "subType" : "<type>"} }

OVERLOADING

       The stringification operator ("") is overloaded to return the binary data and fallback
       overloading is enabled.
