Perl::Dist::WiX::Asset::File - "Single File" asset for a Win32 Perl
This document describes Perl::Dist::WiX::Asset::File version 1.500002.
my $binary = Perl::Dist::Asset::File->new(
url => 'http://host/path/file',
install_to => 'perl/foo.txt',
Perl::Dist::Asset::File is a data class that provides encapsulation and error checking for a single file to be installed unmodified into a Perl::Dist::WiX-based Perl distribution.
It is normally created on the fly by the <Perl::Dist::WiX> install_file method (and other things that call it).
This asset exists to allow for cases where very small tweaks need to be done to distributions by dropping in specific single files.
The specification of the location to retrieve the package is done via the standard mechanism implemented in Perl::Dist::WiX::Role::Asset.
This class is a Perl::Dist::WiX::Role::Asset and shares its API.
The new constructor takes a series of parameters, validates then and returns a new Perl::Dist::WiX::Asset::File object.
It inherits all the parameters described in the Perl::Dist::WiX::Role::Asset->new method documentation, and adds an additional parameter described below.
The install_to parameter is the location that the file needs installed to, relative to the distribution's image directory.
The install method installs the file described by the Perl::Dist::WiX::Asset::File object and returns true or throws an exception.
