Lire::ExtendedSchema(3) Adds fields to each DLF records of a base schema


my $schema = Lire::DlfSchema::load_schema( 'www-robot' );
my $ext_fields = $schema->extended_fields();


A Lire::ExtendedSchema defines a DlfSchema which adds fields to each records of a base DlfSchema. The values of the extended fields are usually computed from values based on the values of the fields in the base Dlf record. These values aren't written by Lire::DlfConverters, but by Lire::DlfAnalysers (or usually a Lire::DlfCategoriser).


Returns the Lire::DlfSchema object for which this schema's records are an extension.

can_join_schema( $schema )

Returns true if $schema can be joined with this schema. For an ExtendedSchema, this will be true only when $schema is an ExtendedSchema which shares the same same than this schema.
