SVN::Access::Group - Object representing a SVN Access file group!


 use SVN::Access;
 my $acl = SVN::Access->new(acl_file => '/usr/local/svn/conf/badnews_svn_access.conf');

 # add a member to all groups.
 foreach my $group ($acl->groups) {


Object wrapper around the groups portion of the SVN access control file. Groups usually look like...

    [groups] everyone = harry, sally, joe, frank, sally, jane


new the constructor, takes anything you want in hash form but im looking for members (arrayref), and the name of the group. the meat and potatoes if you will.

Example: my $group = SVN::Access::Group->new( members => [qw/ray bob elle/], name => "Carpenters", );

members returns a list of the group's members.

Example: my @members = $group->members;

remove_member removes a member from the group.

Example: $group->remove_member("ray");

add_member adds a member to the group. returns an error string for some reason. this is inconsistent with the rest of the interface, so expect either other methods to start having this, or expect this functionality to go away.

Example: print $group->add_member("becky"); # should print "Member becky successfully added to Carpenters\n"

  print $group->add_member("janette"):
  # should print "Member janette already in group Carpenters\n"
member_exists returns true (the member's name) if the member exists.

Example: if ($group->member_exists("ray")) { print "i thought i fired him...\n"; $group->remove_member("ray"); # carpenters don't need SVN access anyway }

name light accessor method which returns the group's name.
