NAME

       Specio::Constraint::Structurable - A class which represents structurable constraints

VERSION

       version 0.44

SYNOPSIS

           my $tuple = t('Tuple');

           my $tuple_of_str_int = $tuple->parameterize( of => [ t('Str'), t('Int') ] );

DESCRIPTION

       This class implements the API for structurable types like "Dict", "Map"< and "Tuple".

API

       This class implements the same API as Specio::Constraint::Simple, with a few additions.

   Specio::Constraint::Structurable->new(...)
       This class's constructor accepts two additional parameters:

       ·   parameterization_args_builder

           This is a subroutine that takes the values passed to "of" and returns a hash of named
           arguments. These arguments will then be passed into the
           "structured_constraint_generator" or "structured_inline_generator".

           This should also do argument checking to make sure that the argument passed are valid.
           For example, the "Tuple" type turns the arrayref passed to "of" into a hash, along the
           way checking that the caller did not do things like interleave optional and required
           elements or mix optional and slurpy together in the definition.

           This parameter is required.

       ·   name_builder

           This is a subroutine that is called to generate a name for the structured type when it
           is created. This will be called as a method on the "Specio::Constraint::Structurable"
           object. It will be passed the hash of arguments returned by the
           "parameterization_args_builder".

           This parameter is required.

       ·   structured_constraint_generator

           This is a subroutine that generates a new constraint subroutine when the type is
           structured.

           It will be called as a method on the type and will be passed the hash of arguments
           returned by the "parameterization_args_builder".

           This parameter is mutually exclusive with the "structured_inline_generator" parameter.

           This parameter or the "structured_inline_generator" parameter is required.

       ·   structured_inline_generator

           This is a subroutine that generates a new inline generator subroutine when the type is
           structured.

           It will be called as a method on the Specio::Constraint::Structured object when that
           object needs to generate an inline constraint. It will receive the type parameter as
           the first argument and the variable name as a string as the second.

           The remaining arguments will be the parameter hash returned by the
           "parameterization_args_builder".

           This probably seems fairly confusing, so looking at the examples in the
           Specio::Library::Structured::* code may be helpful.

           This parameter is mutually exclusive with the "structured_constraint_generator"
           parameter.

           This parameter or the "structured_constraint_generator" parameter is required.

   $type->parameterize(...)
       This method takes two arguments. The "of" argument should be an object which does the
       Specio::Constraint::Role::Interface role, and is required.

       The other argument, "declared_at", is optional. If it is not given, then a new
       Specio::DeclaredAt object is creating using a call stack depth of 1.

       This method returns a new Specio::Constraint::Structured object.
