Gnome2::GConf::Value(3User Contributed Perl DocumentatiGnome2::GConf::Value(3)

NAME
       Gnome2::GConf::Value -  Opaque datatype for generic values

SYNOPSIS
	 $client = Gnome2::GConf::Client->get_default;
	 $client->set($config_key,
	     {
	       type  =>	'string',
	       value =>	'Hello,	World',
	     });
	 print "The Meaning of Life." if ($client->get($another_key)->{value} == 42);

DESCRIPTION
       "GConfValue" is a dynamic type similar to "GValue",  and	represents a
       value that can be obtained from or stored in the	configuration
       database; it contains the value bound to	a key, and its type.

       In perl,	it's an	hashref	containing these keys:

       type
	   The type of the data.  Fundamental types are	'string', 'int',
	   'float' and 'bool'.	Lists are handled by passing an	arrayref as
	   the payload of the "value" key:

		   $client->set($key, {	type =>	'string', value	=> 'some string' });
		   $client->set($key, {	type =>	'float',  value	=> 0.5		 });
		   $client->set($key, {	type =>	'bool',	  value	=> FALSE	 });
		   $client->set($key, {	type =>	'int',	  value	=> [0..15]	 });

	   Pairs are handled by	using the special type 'pair', and passing, in
	   place of the	"value"	key, the "car" and the "cdr" keys, each
	   containing an hashref representing a	GConfValue:

		   $client->set($key, {
				   type	=> 'pair',
				   car	=> { type => 'string', value =>	'some string' },
				   cdr	=> { type => 'int',    value =>	42	      },
			   });

	   This	is needed since	pairs might have different types; lists,
	   instead, are	of the same type.

       value
	   The payload,	containing the value of	type "type".  It is used only
	   for fundamental types (scalars or lists).

       car, cdr
	   Special keys, that must be used only	when working with the 'pair'
	   type.
