Ace::Browser::SiteDefs - Access to AceBrowser configuration files


use Ace; use Ace::Browser::AceSubs; use CGI qw(:standard); my $configuration = Configuration; my $docroot = $configuration->Docroot; my @pictures = @{$configuration->Pictures}; my %displays = %{$configuration->Displays}; my $coderef = $configuration->Url_mapper; $coderef->($param1,$param2);


Ace::Browser::SiteDefs evaluates an AceBrowser configuration file and returns a configuration object ("config object" for short). A config object is a bag of dynamically-generated methods, derived from the scalar variables, arrays, hashes and subroutines in the configuration file. The config object methods are a canonicalized form of the configuration file variables, in which the first character of the method is uppercase, and subsequent characters are lower case. For example, if the configuration variable was $ROOT, the method will be $config_object->Root. Working with Configuration Objects To fetch a configuration object, use the Ace::Browser::AceSubs Configuration() function. This will return a configuration object for the current database: $config_object = Configuration(); Thereafter, it's just a matter of making the proper method calls. If the Configuration file is a.... The method call returns a... ---------------------------------- ---------------------------- Scalar variable Scalar Array variable Array reference Hash variable Hash reference Subroutine Code reference If a variable is not defined, the corresponding method will return undef.
