NAME
Sub::Quote - efficient generation of subroutines via string eval SYNOPSIS
package Silly; use Sub::Quote qw(quote_sub unquote_sub quoted_from_sub); quote_sub 'Silly::kitty', q{ print "meow" }; quote_sub 'Silly::doggy', q{ print "woof" }; my $sound = 0; quote_sub 'Silly::dagron', q{ print ++$sound % 2 ? 'burninate' : 'roar' }, { '$sound' => $sound }; And elsewhere: Silly->kitty; # meow Silly->doggy; # woof Silly->dagron; # burninate Silly->dagron; # roar Silly->dagron; # burninate DESCRIPTION
This package provides performant ways to generate subroutines from strings. SUBROUTINES
quote_sub my $coderef = quote_sub 'Foo::bar', q{ print $x++ . " " }, { '$x' => }; Arguments: ?$name, $code, ?\%captures, ?\%options $name is the subroutine where the coderef will be installed. $code is a string that will be turned into code. "\%captures" is a hashref of variables that will be made available to the code. See the "SYNOPSIS"'s "Silly::dagron" for an example using captures. options o no_install Boolean. Set this option to not install the generated coderef into the passed subroutine name on undefer. unquote_sub my $coderef = unquote_sub $sub; Forcibly replace subroutine with actual code. Note that for performance reasons all quoted subs declared so far will be globally unquoted/parsed in a single eval. This means that if you have a syntax error in one of your quoted subs you may find out when some other sub is unquoted. If $sub is not a quoted sub, this is a no-op. quoted_from_sub my $data = quoted_from_sub $sub; my ($name, $code, $captures, $compiled_sub) = @$data; Returns original arguments to quote_sub, plus the compiled version if this sub has already been unquoted. Note that $sub can be either the original quoted version or the compiled version for convenience. inlinify my $prelude = capture_unroll { '$x' => 1, '$y' => 2, }; my $inlined_code = inlinify q{ my ($x, $y) = @_; print $x + $y . " "; }, '$x, $y', $prelude; Takes a string of code, a string of arguments, a string of code which acts as a "prelude", and a Boolean representing whether or not to localize the arguments. capture_unroll my $prelude = capture_unroll { '$x' => 1, '$y' => 2, }; Generates a snippet of code which is suitable to be used as a prelude for "inlinify". The keys are the names of the variables and the values are (duh) the values. Note that references work as values. CAVEATS
Much of this is just string-based code-generation, and as a result, a few caveats apply. return Calling "return" from a quote_sub'ed sub will not likely do what you intend. Instead of returning from the code you defined in "quote_sub", it will return from the overall function it is composited into. So when you pass in: quote_sub q{ return 1 if $condition; $morecode } It might turn up in the intended context as follows: sub foo { <important code a> do { return 1 if $condition; $morecode }; <important code b> } Which will obviously return from foo, when all you meant to do was return from the code context in quote_sub and proceed with running important code b. perl v5.16.2 2012-07-04 Sub::Quote(3)

"\%captures" is a hashref of variables that will be made available to the code. The keys should be the full name of the variable to be made available, including the sigil. The values should be references to the values. The variables will contain copies of the values. See the "SYNOPSIS"'s "Silly::dagron" for an example using captures. options o no_install Boolean.

The keys of %captures are the names of the variables and the values are ignored. $indent is the number of spaces to indent the result by. CAVEATS

This includes the package, strict, warnings, and any other lexical pragmas. This is done by prefixing the code with a block that sets up a matching environment. When inlining "Sub::Quote" subs, care should be taken that user pragmas won't effect the rest of the code. SUPPORT
