SVN::Base - Base class for importing symbols for svn modules
# Load the svn_ra_* functions into the SVN::Ra namespace.
use SVN::Base qw(Ra svn_ra_);
# Load svn_config_t structure accessors in the magic namcespace
# provided by swig, so we could use it returned by other functions
use SVN::Base qw(Core svn_config_);
SVN::Base is a module importing the subversion perl bindings raw
symbols created by swig, into proper namespace and make them easier to
It will also find the accessors for members of a C struct, create an
simpler accessor function like "$data->field()" and
Once you understand the convention of subversion functions in perl
bindings, you could look at the subversion api and write them in perl.
The API is available in the source header files or online at
The perl bindings of swig wraps raw functions into different perl
modules, for example, SVN::_Core, SVN::_Repos. Upon import, SVN::Base
bootstrap the requested module if it's not yet loaded, and iterate over
the symbols provided in that module, it them puts the function with
prefix trimmed in the namespace of the caller for this import.
The 3rd through the last parameter is a list of symbol endings that you
wish for SVN::Base not to import into your namespace. This is useful
for cases where you may want to import certaion symbols differently
SVN::Base consider a function as structure member accessor if it is
postfixed ``_get'' or ``_set''. Real functions with this postfixes will
need extra handling.
