Whoops, on the way down to Old Street suddenly realised that were some
useful File::Find::Rule extensions that I wanted and knew how to
I was after a quiet time, but instead I have all these modules to
(which will have to grow a corresponding
maybe it'll cross the streams with
FFR::CVS to become
Class::DBI:AutoBase to Class::DBI::BaseDSN, and released
the sucker to CPAN.
Speaking of File::Find::Rule, did a bit of documentation hacking on
it on the way home which split the documentation of the procedural
interface out. This is because people seem to get confused between
when to use anonymous lists.
For the straight object interface, you can easily pass multiple
values, as the calls are clearly marked out:
File::Find::Rule->name( '*.pm', 'foo.*' );
But for the procedure call you have to pass lists as arrayrefs, so we
know where to stop:
rule( name => [ '*.pm', 'foo.*' ] );
Which (understandably) leads to people trying this, which much to
their surprise doesn't work:
File::Find::Rule->name( [ '*.pm', 'foo.*' ] );
Hopefully by splitting them out people won't see both at the same
time, and so won't get confused. Hopefully.
