NAME

TAP::Parser::Iterator - Base class for TAP source iterators  

VERSION

Version 3.42  

SYNOPSIS

  # to subclass:
  use TAP::Parser::Iterator ();
  use base 'TAP::Parser::Iterator';
  sub _initialize {
    # see TAP::Object...
  }

  sub next_raw { ... }
  sub wait     { ... }
  sub exit     { ... }

 

DESCRIPTION

This is a simple iterator base class that defines TAP::Parser's iterator API. Iterators are typically created from TAP::Parser::SourceHandlers.  

METHODS

 

Class Methods

"new"

Create an iterator. Provided by TAP::Object.  

Instance Methods

"next"

 while ( my $item = $iter->next ) { ... }

Iterate through it, of course.

"next_raw"

Note: this method is abstract and should be overridden.

 while ( my $item = $iter->next_raw ) { ... }

Iterate raw input without applying any fixes for quirky input syntax.

"handle_unicode"

If necessary switch the input stream to handle unicode. This only has any effect for I/O handle based streams.

The default implementation does nothing.

"get_select_handles"

Return a list of filehandles that may be used upstream in a select() call to signal that this Iterator is ready. Iterators that are not handle-based should return an empty list.

The default implementation does nothing.

"wait"

Note: this method is abstract and should be overridden.

 my $wait_status = $iter->wait;

Return the "wait" status for this iterator.

"exit"

Note: this method is abstract and should be overridden.

 my $wait_status = $iter->exit;

Return the "exit" status for this iterator.  

SUBCLASSING

Please see ``SUBCLASSING'' in TAP::Parser for a subclassing overview.

You must override the abstract methods as noted above.  

Example

TAP::Parser::Iterator::Array is probably the easiest example to follow. There's not much point repeating it here.
