DESCRIPTION

FUNCTIONS

args_by_tag

Usage:

 my %args = args_by_tag($meta, \%args0, $tag);

Will select only keypairs from %args0 arguments which have tag $tag. Examples:

 my %args = args_by_tag($SPEC{myfunc1}, {foo=>1, bar=>2, baz=>3, qux=>4}, 't2'); # (foo=>1, bar=>2)

argnames_by_tag

Usage:

 my @arg_names = argnames_by_tag($meta, $tag);

Will select only argument names which have tag $tag.

func_args_by_tag

Usage:

 my %args = func_args_by_tag($func_name, \%args0, $tag);

Like "args_by_tag" except that instead of supplying Rinci function metadata, you supply a function name. Rinci metadata will be searched in %SPEC variable.

func_argnames_by_tag

Usage:

 my @argnames = func_argnames_by_tag($func_name, $tag);

Like "argnames_by_tag" except that instead of supplying Rinci function metadata, you supply a function name. Rinci metadata will be searched in %SPEC variable.

call_with_its_args

Usage:

 my $res = call_with_its_args($func_name, \%args);

Call function with arguments taken from %args. Only arguments which the function declares it accepts will be passed.
