( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

One way to reduce the amount of repetition is to take a more OO approach and give each action a type or base action (class) that contains the common parameters. Then to look up a parameter, first check the action and if it does not exists then check the base action. This will make it much easier to add new actions and prevent a lot of cut & paste. Each new action then only need contain the relevant information, not the boring boilerplate stuff.

e.g. something along these lines :-

[ {id => 'test_build', workdir =>'build/t', type => 'default_test'}, {id => 'test_output', workdir => 'output/t', type => 'default_test'} +, ... {id => 'default_test', command => 'prove', logfile => 'test.out', te +e => 1, prompt => 0, run => 1}, ... ]

My personal preference is to use json for this type of thing, but it is just that: a personal preference. Use whatever you and your users will find most comfortable.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
