NAME

SPOPSx::Tool::HashField - A SPOPS extension for the storage of complex objects

SYNOPSIS

  %conf = (
      table_alias => {
          # ...
          yaml_fields => [ qw/ arguments locals results / ],
          # ...
      }
  );

DESCRIPTION

This allows for the storage of Perl aggregate types in a database field. This uses YAML to perform the marshalling and unmarshalling. This is handy because you can use third-party tools to update the stored data with relative ease and the data is readable even in other languages that have a YAML model. The data structure can be arbritraily deep.

INSTALLATION

Just the typical install tricks will do:

  perl Build.PL
  ./Build
  ./Build test
  ./Build install

or:

  perl Makefile.PL
  make
  make test
  make install

Take your pick.
