Exacct::Object::Item(3PERL)

Name

Exacct::Object::Item - exacct item manipulation

Synopsis

use Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object;
my $ea_item = Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object::Item->new(
    &EXT_UINT64 | &EXC_DEFAULT | &EXD_PROC_PID, $$);

Description

This module is used for manipulating libexacct(3LIB) data Items. A libexacct Item is represented as an opaque reference blessed into the Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object::Item class, which is a subclass of the Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object class. The underlying libexacct data types are mapped onto Perl types as follows:

libexacct type
Perl internal type
EXT_UINT8
IV (integer)
EXT_UINT16
IV (integer)
EXT_UINT32
IV (integer)
EXT_UINT64
IV (integer)
EXT_DOUBLE
NV (double)
EXT_STRING
PV (string)
EXT_RAW
PV (string)
EXT_EXACCT_OBJECT
Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object subclass

Constants

None.

Functions

None.

Class methods

Class methods include those inherited from the Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object base class, plus the following:

new($catalog, $value)

This method creates and returns a new Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object::Item. The catalog tag can be either an integer or a Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Catalog. This catalog tag controls the conversion of the Perl value to the corresponding Perl exacct data type as described in the table above. If the catalog tag has a type field of EXT_EXACCT_OBJECT, the value must be a reference to either an Item or a Group object and the passed object is recursively copied and stored inside the new Item. Because the returned Item is constant, it is impossible, for example, to create an Item representing CPU seconds and subsequently modify its value or change its catalog value. This behavior is intended to prevent mismatches between the catalog tag and the data value.

Object methods

Object methods are those inherited from the Sun::Solaris::Exacct::Object.

Exports

None.
