NAME

       Config::Model::Backend::PerlFile - Read and write config as a Perl data structure

VERSION

       version 2.133

SYNOPSIS

        use Config::Model ;
        use Data::Dumper ;

        # define configuration tree object
        my $model = Config::Model->new ;
        $model ->create_config_class (
           name => "MyClass",
           element => [
               [qw/foo bar/] => {
                   type => 'leaf',
                   value_type => 'string'
               },
               baz => {
                   type => 'hash',
                   index_type => 'string' ,
                   cargo => {
                       type => 'leaf',
                       value_type => 'string',
                   },
               },
           ],
         rw_config  => {
            backend => 'perl_file' ,
            config_dir => '/tmp',
            file  => 'foo.pl',
            auto_create => 1,
         },
        ) ;

        my $inst = $model->instance(root_class_name => 'MyClass' );

        my $root = $inst->config_root ;

        my $steps = 'foo=yada bar="bla bla" baz:en=hello
                    baz:fr=bonjour baz:hr="dobar dan"';
        $root->load( steps => $steps ) ;
        $inst->write_back ;

       Now, "/tmp/foo.pl" contains:

        {
          bar => 'bla bla',
          baz => {
            en => 'hello',
            fr => 'bonjour',
            hr => 'dobar dan'
          },
          foo => 'yada'
        }

DESCRIPTION

       This module is used directly by Config::Model to read or write the content of a
       configuration tree written with Perl syntax in "Config::Model" configuration tree.

       Note:

       ·   Undefined values are skipped for list element. I.e. if a list element contains
           "('a',undef,'b')", the data structure contains 'a','b'.

       ·   Perl file is not created (and may be deleted) when no data is to be written.

backend parameter

   config_dir
       Mandoatory parameter to specify where is the Perl configuration file.

CONSTRUCTOR

   new
       Inherited from Config::Model::Backend::Any. The constructor is called by
       Config::Model::BackendMgr.

   read
       Of all parameters passed to this read call-back, only "ifile_path" is used. This parameter
       must be IO::File object already opened for read.

       It can also be undef. In which case "read" returns 0.

       When a file is read, "read" returns 1.

   write
       Of all parameters passed to this write call-back, only "file_path" is used. This parameter
       must be a Path::Tiny object.

       "write" returns 1.
