=head1 NAME

DBIx::Class::Helper::ResultSet::Me - Define predefined searches more nicely


 # note that this is normally a component for a ResultSet
 package MySchema::ResultSet::Bar;

 use strict;
 use warnings;

 use parent 'DBIx::Class::ResultSet';

 use constant CANDY => 1;


 sub candy {
    $_[0]->search({ $_[0]->me.'type' => CANDY })

 sub cake {
    $_[0]->search({ $_[0]->me('type') => CAKE })

 # in code using resultset:
 my $candy_bars = $schema->resultset('Bar')->candy;
 my $cake_bars  = $schema->resultset('Bar')->cake;


This component allows slightly nicer predefined search definition.  See
L<DBIx::Class::Helper::ResultSet/NOTE> for a nice way to apply it to your
entire schema.

It defines a single method that is shorter and (to most) clearer than
L<DBIx::Class::ResultSet/current_source_alias>, which is what it uses
for the L</me> method.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 me

Merely returns the SQL namespace for the current search with a C<.> at the end,
allowing internal resultset methods to be defined with C<< $self->me >> instead
of C<< $self->current_source_alias . q(.) >>.  Also, if you pass it a single
argument it will append that to the returned string.
