Don't try this at home kids...

[ #30798 ]
I'm a trained shaved monkey. Take a look at FormValidator::Simple::ProfileManager::YAML. It allows one to load FVS profiles from YAML. That's a nice compliment to FormValidator::Simples ability to load error messages form a yaml file. But apparently, some things can't be easy. Using the [REGEX, qr//] validator is one of those things. With a little tinkering, the answer appears; assuming the various perl YAML parsers can grok it...YAML can at least.

  - name
  - [ [NOT_BLANK], [LENGTH, 1, 50] ]
  - id
      - REGEX
      - !perl/regexp:
        REGEXP: '^[a-f0-9]{8}-([a-f0-9]{4}-){3}[a-f0-9]{12}$'
        MODIFIERS: i

That's one for the record books.

  • It sounds like you might want to get a different serialization for that regexp object than what your YAML library gave you. If you feed that into some non-perl YAML library doesn't that mean they're either obligated to create a perl object, bail, or die or something?

    Either that or maybe go through your data and demote your regexps to strings before letting YAML see it.
  • I'm working within the constraints of what FV::S::ProfileManager::YAML does; mainly load profiles from yaml and feed them directly into FV::S.

    As for non-Perl YAML parsers, who cares. I'm working within the confines of perl modules (FV::S), in a perl application (Catalyst). IF it were a more general type of config, then I agree.
