NAME

       Types::Path::Tiny - Path::Tiny types and coercions for Moose and Moo

VERSION

       version 0.006

SYNOPSIS

       Example with Moose:

         ### specification of type constraint with coercion

         package Foo;

         use Moose;
         use Types::Path::Tiny qw/Path AbsPath/;

         has filename => (
           is => 'ro',
           isa => Path,
           coerce => 1,
         );

         has directory => (
           is => 'ro',
           isa => AbsPath,
           coerce => 1,
         );

         ### usage in code

         Foo->new( filename => 'foo.txt' ); # coerced to Path::Tiny
         Foo->new( directory => '.' ); # coerced to path('.')->absolute

       Example with Moo:

           ### specification of type constraint with coercion

           package Foo;

           use Moo;
           use Types::Path::Tiny qw/Path AbsPath/;

           has 'directory' => (
               is       => 'rw',
               isa      => AbsPath,
               required => 1,
               coerce   => AbsPath->coercion,
           );

           ### usage in code

           Foo->new( directory => '.' ); # coerced to path('.')->absolute

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides Path::Tiny types for Moose, Moo, etc.

       It handles two important types of coercion:

       ·   coercing objects with overloaded stringification

       ·   coercing to absolute paths

       It also can check to ensure that files or directories exist.

SUBTYPES

       This module uses Type::Tiny to define the following subtypes.

   Path
       "Path" ensures an attribute is a Path::Tiny object.  Strings and objects with overloaded
       stringification may be coerced.

   AbsPath
       "AbsPath" is a subtype of "Path" (above), but coerces to an absolute path.

   File, AbsFile
       These are just like "Path" and "AbsPath", except they check "-f" to ensure the file
       actually exists on the filesystem.

   Dir, AbsDir
       These are just like "Path" and "AbsPath", except they check "-d" to ensure the directory
       actually exists on the filesystem.

CAVEATS

   Path vs File vs Dir
       "Path" just ensures you have a Path::Tiny object.

       "File" and "Dir" check the filesystem.  Don't use them unless that's really what you want.

   Usage with File::Temp
       Be careful if you pass in a File::Temp object. Because the argument is stringified during
       coercion into a Path::Tiny object, no reference to the original File::Temp argument is
       held.  Be sure to hold an external reference to it to avoid immediate cleanup of the
       temporary file or directory at the end of the enclosing scope.

       A better approach is to use Path::Tiny's own "tempfile" or "tempdir" constructors, which
       hold the reference for you.

           Foo->new( filename => Path::Tiny->tempfile );
