DateTime::Format::Builder::Parser::Dispatch

NAME

DateTime::Format::Builder::Parser::Dispatch − Dispatch parsers by group

SYNOPSIS

package SampleDispatch;
use DateTime::Format::Builder
(
parsers => {
parse_datetime => [
{
Dispatch => sub {
return 'fnerk';
}
}
]
},
groups => {
fnerk => [
{
regex => qr/^(\d{4})(\d\d)(\d\d)$/,
params => [qw( year month day )],
},
]
}
);

DESCRIPTION

"Dispatch" adds another parser type to "Builder" permitting dispatch of parsing according to group names.

SPECIFICATION

"Dispatch" has just one key: "Dispatch". The value should be a reference to a subroutine that returns one of:

"undef", meaning no groups could be found.

An empty list, meaning no groups could be found.

A single string, meaning: use this group

A list of strings, meaning: use these groups in this order.

Groups are specified much like the example in the SYNOPSIS . They follow the same format as when you specify them for methods.

SIDEEFFECTS

Your group parser can also be a Dispatch parser. Thus you could potentially end up with an infinitely recursive parser.

THANKS
