NAME

       Type::Tie - tie a variable to a type constraint

SYNOPSIS

       Type::Tie is a response to this sort of problem...

          use strict;
          use warnings;

          {
             package Local::Testing;
             use Moose;
             has numbers => ( is => "ro", isa => "ArrayRef[Num]" );
          }

          # Nice list of numbers.
          my @N = ( 1, 2, 3, 3.14159 );

          # Create an object with a reference to that list.
          my $object = Local::Testing->new(numbers => \@N);

          # Everything OK so far...

          # Now watch this!
          push @N, "Monkey!";
          print $object->dump;

          # Houston, we have a problem!

       Just declare @N like this:

          use Type::Tie;
          use Types::Standard qw( Num );

          ttie my @N, Num, ( 1, 2, 3, 3.14159 );

       Now any attempt to add a non-numeric value to @N will die.

DESCRIPTION

       This module exports a single function: "ttie". "ttie" ties a variable to a type
       constraint, ensuring that whatever values stored in the variable will conform to the type
       constraint. If the type constraint has coercions, these will be used if necessary to
       ensure values assigned to the variable conform.

          use Type::Tie;
          use Types::Standard qw( Int Num );

          ttie my $count, Int->plus_coercions(Num, 'int $_'), 0;

          $count++;            # ok
          $count = 2;          # ok
          $count = 3.14159;    # ok, coerced to 3
          $count = "Monkey!";  # dies

       While the examples in documentation (and the test suite) show type constraints from
       Types::Standard, but any type constraint objects supporting the Type::API interfaces
       should work. This includes:

       ·   Moose::Meta::TypeConstraint / MooseX::Types

       ·   Mouse::Meta::TypeConstraint / MouseX::Types

       ·   Specio

       ·   Type::Tiny
