=head1 NAME

Perinci::Sub::XCompletion::comma_sep - Generate completion for completing a comma-separated list of other completion

=head1 VERSION

This document describes version 0.104 of Perinci::Sub::XCompletion::comma_sep (from Perl distribution Perinci-Sub-XCompletion), released on 2023-03-01.


In L<argument specification|Rinci::function/"args (function property)"> of your
L<Rinci> L<function metadata|Rinci::function>:

 # complete a comma-separated list of unix users
 'x.completion' => [comma_sep => {xcompletion => 'unix_user'}],

 # complete an argument in the form of FILENAME,UNIX_USER,WORDLIST_MODULE_NAME
 'x.completion' => [comma_sep => {xcompletions => ['filename', 'unix_user', [perl_modname => {ns_prefix=>"WordList"}]]}],


This completion lets you string several completions together in a
comma-separated list.


=head2 xcompletion

The C<Perinci::Sub::XCompletion::*> module name, without the prefix, to generate
completion for all the items ih the comma-separated list. Or, a 2-element array
containing module name and hash of parameters for the module.


 xcompletion => 'unix_user',
 xcompletion => [perl_modname => {ns_prefix=>"WordList"}],

Either this parameter or L</xcompletions> must be specified.

=head2 xcompletions

An array containing list of completions to generate for each corresponding item
in the comma-separated list. Each element of the C<xcompletions> list should be
the C<Perinci::Sub::XCompletion::*> module name without the prefix, or a
2-element array containing module name and hash of parameters for the module.


 xcompletions => ['filename', 'unix_user', [perl_modname => {ns_prefix=>"WordList"}]],

Either this parameter or L</xcompletion> must be specified.


=head2 gen_completion


 gen_completion() -> [$status_code, $reason, $payload, \%result_meta]

This function is not exported.

No arguments.

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element ($status_code) is an integer containing HTTP-like status code
(200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element
($reason) is a string containing error message, or something like "OK" if status is
200. Third element ($payload) is the actual result, but usually not present when enveloped result is an error response ($status_code is not 2xx). Fourth
element (%result_meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash
that contains extra information, much like how HTTP response headers provide additional metadata.

Return value:  (any)

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

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 L<Dist::Zilla>,
L<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.
