Type::Tiny::Union

union type constraints

Status

This module is covered by the Type-Tiny stability policy.

Description

Union type constraints.

This package inherits from Type::Tiny; see that for most documentation. Major differences are listed below:

Attributes

type_constraints

Arrayref of type constraints.

When passed to the constructor, if any of the type constraints in the union is itself a union type constraint, this is "exploded" into the new union.

constraint

Unlike Type::Tiny, you cannot pass a constraint coderef to the constructor. Instead rely on the default.

inlined

Unlike Type::Tiny, you cannot pass an inlining coderef to the constructor. Instead rely on the default.

parent

Unlike Type::Tiny, you cannot pass an inlining coderef to the constructor. A parent will instead be automatically calculated.

coercion

You probably do not pass this to the constructor. (It's not currently disallowed, as there may be a use for it that I haven't thought of.)

The auto-generated default will be a Type::Coercion::Union object.

Methods

find_type_for($value)

Returns the first individual type constraint in the union which $value passes.

stringifies_to($constraint)

See Type::Tiny::ConstrainedObject.

numifies_to($constraint)

See Type::Tiny::ConstrainedObject.

with_attribute_values($attr1 => $constraint1, ...)

See Type::Tiny::ConstrainedObject.

Overloading

  • Arrayrefification calls type_constraints.
