Perl::Dist::WiX::Role::Asset - Role for assets.
This document describes Perl::Dist::WiX::Role::Asset version 1.500002.
# Since this is a role, it is composed into classes that use it.
# It is not used independently.
Perl::Dist::WiX::Role::Asset is a role that provides methods, attributes, and error checking for assets to be installed in a Perl::Dist::WiX-based Perl distribution.
Attributes of this role also become parameters to the new() constructor for classes that use this role.
This is the Perl::Dist::WiX object that uses an asset object that uses this role. The Perl::Dist::WiX object handles a number of private methods for the asset object.
It is required, and has no default, so an error will be thrown if it is not given.
This attribute is the location on the Internet of the thing the asset installs.
Either the 'url' or 'file' parameters are required.
This attribute is the location of the file the asset installs. This could be an archive containing multiple files to install.
Some distributions create their packlist in an odd location (one not specified by the main module in the distribution.)
This optional parameter specifies the directory the packlist is in as a relative directory to image_dir() . "/install location/lib/author".
This role requires that classes that use it implement an install method that installs the asset.
It does not provide the method itself, but makes classes that use the role implement the method based on their needs.
The remove_path method is for the convienence of assets that need it.
It removes the path specified, and can take any object (e.g., a Path::Class::Dir) that stringifies to a name of a directory to remove.
