Object::Permission::Group cpan:JSTOWE last updated on 2019-01-15



Object helper for Object::Permission using unix groups.


use Object::Permission::Group; # $*AUTH-USER is derived from $*USER

  # Or:

  Use Object::Permission::Group;

# Set $*AUTH-USER to one for a specified user
  $*AUTH-USER = => 'wibble');


This provides a simple implementation of Object::Permission::User to be used with Object::Permission which derives the permissions for the $*AUTH-USER from the users unix group membership.

By default $*AUTH-USER is initialised based on the value of $*USER (i.e. the effective user,) but it can be set manually with the permissions of an arbitrary user (as in the second example above.)


Assuming you have a working Rakudo Perl 6 installation you should be able to install this with zef :

# From the source directory

zef install .

# Remote installation

zef install Object::Permission::Group
