Config::Model::Itself::BackendDetector(3) Detect available read/write backends usable by config models


version 2.005


# this class should be referenced in a configuration model and
# created only by Config::Model::Node
my $model = Config::Model->new() ;
$model ->create_config_class
name => "Test",
=> [
'backend' => { type => 'leaf',
class => 'Config::Model::Itself::BackendDetector' ,
value_type => 'enum',
# specify backends built in Config::Model
choice => [qw/cds_file perl_file ini_file custom/],
help => {
cds_file => "file ...",
ini_file => "Ini file ...",
perl_file => "file perl",
custom => "Custom format",
my $root = $model->instance(root_class_name => 'Test') -> config_root ;
my $backend = $root->fetch_element('backend') ;
my @choices = $backend->get_choice ;


This class is derived from Config::Model::Value. It is designed to be used in a 'enum' value where the choice (the available backends) are the backend built in Config::Model and all the plugin backends. The plugin backends are all the "Config::Model::Backend::*" classes.

This module will detect available plugin backend and query their pod documentation to provide a contextual help for config-model graphical editor.
