in reply to XPath-like method for searching/editing structures

There are a number of modules that offer XPath-like syntax for drilling down into nested Perl data structures. One is my own JSON::Path which implements the JsonPath specification which also has freely available PHP, Javascript and C# (.NET) implementations.

JSON::Path also has links to various other similar Perl modules that I found in its SEE ALSO section.

I do like that Data::Diver lvalue feature. I may have to steal that.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    This basically what I am looking for, except that it only does searching and not editing. If you end up "stealing" the lvalue feature, I'd love to know about it. I'm actually asking quite a bit ahead of time of my needing this functionality.

Eily thought about Neko Case first, something might be wrong with my brain's wiring
[virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
[ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
virtualsue waves back
[Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
[Corion]: I think I saw virtualsue more recently in person than online :-D
[virtualsue]: It's true that there was a bigger gap between the 2 yr old post and the one before it
[ambrus]: yes, I probably just didn't see you two years ago, because I'm not in perlmonks much
