NAME

HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType - A Media Type

VERSION

version 0.09

SYNOPSIS

  use HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType;

  # normal constructor
  my $mt = HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType->new(
      'application/xml' => (
          'q'       => 0.5,
          'charset' => 'UTF-8'
      )
  );

  # construct from string
  my $mt = HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaType->new_from_string(
      'application/xml; q=0.5; charset=UTF-8'
  );

DESCRIPTION

This is an object which represents an HTTP media type definition. This is most often found as a member of a HTTP::Headers::ActionPack::MediaTypeList object.

METHODS

"type"
Accessor for the type.
"major"
The major portion of the media type name.
"minor"
The minor portion of the media type name.
"matches_all"
A media type matched all if the type is "*/*" and if it has no parameters.
"equals ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
This will attempt to determine if the $media_type is exactly the same as itself. If given a $media_type_string it will parse it into an object.

In order for two type to be equal, the types must match exactly and the parameters much match exactly.

"exact_match ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
This will attempt to determine if the $media_type is a match with itself using the "type_matches" method below. If given a $media_type_string it will parse it into an object.

In order for an exact match to occur it the types must be compatible and the parameters much match exactly.

"match ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
This will attempt to determine if the $media_type is a match with itself using the "type_matches" method and "params_match" method below. If given a $media_type_string it will parse it into an object.

In order for an exact match to occur it the types must be compatible and the parameters must be a subset.

"type_matches ( $media_type | $media_type_string )"
This will determine type compatibility, properly handling the "*" types and major and minor elements of the type.
"params_match ( $parameters )"
This determines if the $parameters are a subset of the invocants parameters.
