NAME

       HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType - A Media Type

VERSION

       version 0.09

SYNOPSIS

         use HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType;

         # normal constructor
         my $mt = HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType->new(
             'application/xml' => (
                 'q'       => 0.5,
                 'charset' => 'UTF-8'
             )
         );

         # construct from string
         my $mt = HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType->new_from_string(
             'application/xml; q=0.5; charset=UTF-8'
         );

DESCRIPTION

       This is an object which represents an HTTP media type definition. This is most often found
       as a member of a HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaTypeList object.

METHODS

       "type"
           Accessor for the type.

       "major"
           The major portion of the media type name.

       "minor"
           The minor portion of the media type name.

       "matches_all"
           A media type matched all if the type is "*/*" and if it has no parameters.

       "equals ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
           This will attempt to determine if the $media_type is exactly the same as itself. If
           given a $media_type_string it will parse it into an object.

           In order for two type to be equal, the types must match exactly and the parameters
           much match exactly.

       "exact_match ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
           This will attempt to determine if the $media_type is a match with itself using the
           "type_matches" method below.  If given a $media_type_string it will parse it into an
           object.

           In order for an exact match to occur it the types must be compatible and the
           parameters much match exactly.

       "match ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
           This will attempt to determine if the $media_type is a match with itself using the
           "type_matches" method and "params_match" method below. If given a $media_type_string
           it will parse it into an object.

           In order for an exact match to occur it the types must be compatible and the
           parameters must be a subset.

       "type_matches ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
           This will determine type compatibility, properly handling the "*" types and major and
           minor elements of the type.

       "params_match ( $parameters )"
           This determines if the $parameters are a subset of the invocants parameters.
