NAME

Sah::Schema::perl::distname - Perl distribution name, e.g. Foo-Bar

VERSION

This document describes version 0.045 of Sah::Schema::perl::distname (from Perl distribution Sah-Schemas-Perl), released on 2022-09-11.

SYNOPSIS

Using with Data::Sah

To check data against this schema (requires Data::Sah):

 use Data::Sah qw(gen_validator);
 my $validator = gen_validator("perl::distname*");
 say $validator->($data) ? "valid" : "INVALID!";

The above schema returns a boolean result (true if data is valid, false if otherwise). To return an error message string instead (empty string if data is valid, a non-empty error message otherwise):

 my $validator = gen_validator("perl::distname", {return_type=>'str_errmsg'});
 my $errmsg = $validator->($data);

Often a schema has coercion rule or default value, so after validation the validated value is different. To return the validated (set-as-default, coerced, prefiltered) value:

 my $validator = gen_validator("perl::distname", {return_type=>'str_errmsg+val'});
 my $res = $validator->($data); # [$errmsg, $validated_val]

Data::Sah can also create validator that returns a hash of detailed error message. Data::Sah can even create validator that targets other language, like JavaScript, from the same schema. Other things Data::Sah can do: show source code for validator, generate a validator code with debug comments and/or log statements, generate human text from schema. See its documentation for more details.

Using with Params::Sah

To validate function parameters against this schema (requires Params::Sah):

 use Params::Sah qw(gen_validator);

 sub myfunc {
     my @args = @_;
     state $validator = gen_validator("perl::distname*");
     $validator->(\@args);
     ...
 }

Using with Perinci::CmdLine::Lite

To specify schema in Rinci function metadata and use the metadata with Perinci::CmdLine (Perinci::CmdLine::Lite) to create a CLI:

 # in lib/MyApp.pm
 package
   MyApp;
 our %SPEC;
 $SPEC{myfunc} = {
     v => 1.1,
     summary => 'Routine to do blah ...',
     args => {
         arg1 => {
             summary => 'The blah blah argument',
             schema => ['perl::distname*'],
         },
         ...
     },
 };
 sub myfunc {
     my %args = @_;
     ...
 }
 1;

 # in myapp.pl
 package
   main;
 use Perinci::CmdLine::Any;
 Perinci::CmdLine::Any->new(url=>'/MyApp/myfunc')->run;

 # in command-line
 % ./myapp.pl --help
 myapp - Routine to do blah ...
 ...

 % ./myapp.pl --version

 % ./myapp.pl --arg1 ...

DESCRIPTION

This is a schema you can use when you want to accept a Perl distribution name, e.g. WWW-Mechanize. It offers basic checking of syntax as well as a couple of conveniences. First, it offers completion from list of locally installed Perl distribution. Second, it contains coercion rule so you can also input Foo::Bar, Foo/Bar, Foo/Bar.pm, or even 'Foo.Bar' and it will be normalized into Foo-Bar.

To see this schema in action on the CLI, you can try e.g. the dist-has-deb script from App::DistUtils and activate its tab completion (see its manpage for more details). Then on the CLI try typing:

 % dist-has-deb WWW-<tab>
 % dist-has-deb dzp/<tab>

Note that this schema does not check that the Perl disribution exists on CPAN or is installed locally. To check that, use the perl::distname::installed schema. And there's also a perl::distname::not_installed schema.

CONTRIBUTING

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.

Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:

 % prove -l

If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
