Jifty::DBI::Filter::Truncate - Filter used to enforce max_length column trait


You do not need to use this filter explicitly. This filter is used internally to enforce the "max_length" in Jifty::DBI::Schema restrictions on columns:

  column name =>
      type is 'text',
      max_length is 10;

In this case, the filter would be automatically added to the column named name and any value put into the column longer than 10 characters would be truncated to 10 characters.



This method performs the work of performing truncation, when necessary.
