NAME

       Type::Nano - simple type constraint library for testing

SYNOPSIS

         use Type::Nano qw(Int);

         Int->check("42");  # true

RATIONALE

       This is a really basic implementation of Type::API::Constraint for testing modules that
       make use of type constraints, such as Type::Tie.

       I'll stress that this module is only intended for use in testing. It was created to
       eliminate Type::Tie's testing dependency on Types::Standard.  If your code supports
       Type::Nano, then your code should also automatically support Type::Tiny, Specio,
       MooseX::Types, and MouseX::Types with no extra effort. (Of course, some of those libraries
       do have some more features you may want to make extra effort to use! Inlining, for
       example.)

       Type::Nano is not recommended for use in regular application code.  Type::Tiny while
       bigger than Type::Nano, will be much faster at runtime, and offers better integration with
       Moo, Moose, Mouse, and a wide variety of other tools. Use that instead.

       All that having been said, Type::Nano is compatible with: Type::Tie, Moo, Type::Tiny (e.g.
       you can use Type::Tiny's implementation of "ArrayRef" and Type::Nano's implementation of
       "Int", and combine them as "ArrayRef[Int]"), Class::XSConstructor, and
       Variable::Declaration.

DESCRIPTION

   Object-Oriented Interface
       Constructor

       "Type::Nano->new(%parameters)"
           The constructor supports named parameters called "name" (a string), "constraint" (a
           coderef expected to return a boolean), and "parent" (a blessed Type::Nano object). Any
           other parameters passed to the constructor will be stored in the blessed hashred
           returned, but are ignored by Type::Nano.

       Methods

       Types support the following methods:

       "$type->check($value)"
           Checks the value against the constraint; returns a boolean.

       "$type->get_message($failing_value)"
           Returns an error message. Does not check the value.

       Types overload "&{}" to do something like:

         $type->check($value) or croak($type->get_message($value))

   Exports
       This module optionally exports the following type constraints:

       ·   Any

       ·   Defined

       ·   Undef

       ·   Ref

       ·   ArrayRef

       ·   HashRef

       ·   CodeRef

       ·   Object

       ·   Str

       ·   Bool

       ·   Num

       ·   Int

       It also optionally exports the following functions for creating new type constraints:

       ·   "type $name, $coderef" or "type $coderef"

       ·   "class_type $class"

       ·   "role_type $role"

       ·   "duck_type $name, \@methods" or "duck_type \@methods"

       ·   "enum $name, \@values" or "enum \@values"

       ·   "union $name, \@types" or "union \@types"

       ·   "intersection $name, \@types" or "intersection \@types"
