Specio::Constraint::Structurable - A class which represents structurable constraints
my $tuple = t('Tuple'); my $tuple_of_str_int = $tuple->parameterize( of => [ t('Str'), t('Int') ] );
This class implements the API for structurable types like "Dict", "Map"< and "Tuple".
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.
