EXPORTS

Exports nothing on default.


DESCRIPTION

This package provides a validation class for ``things'' in Games::3D. It defines what the valid keys are, and what their data should look like, and also how this data should be transformed into strings and back to internal data (for instance when saving/loading data).


METHODS

new()

        my $template = Games::3D::Template->new();

Creates a new, empty template.

class()

        $template->class();

Return the class of objects this template describes. For instance, 'Games::3D::Foo::Bar'.

validate()

        $template->validate($thingy);

Validate the entire object $thingy, e.g see if it still confirms to the template.

Returns undef for ok, otherwise error message.

validate_key()

        $template->validate_key($thingy, $key);

id()
Return the templates' unique id. They are independant from all other IDs.

create_thing()

        my $fresh = $template->create_thing();
