DBIx::Class::Helper::ResultSet::Me - Define predefined searches more nicely


 # note that this is normally a component for a ResultSet
 package MySchema::ResultSet::Bar;
 use strict;
 use warnings;
 use parent 'DBIx::Class::ResultSet';
 use constant CANDY => 1;
 sub candy {
    $_[0]->search({ $_[0]->me.'type' => CANDY })
 sub cake {
    $_[0]->search({ $_[0]->me('type') => CAKE })
 # in code using resultset:
 my $candy_bars = $schema->resultset('Bar')->candy;
 my $cake_bars  = $schema->resultset('Bar')->cake;


This component allows slightly nicer predefined search definition. See "NOTE" in DBIx::Class::Helper::ResultSet for a nice way to apply it to your entire schema.
It defines a single method that is shorter and (to most) clearer than "current_source_alias" in DBIx::Class::ResultSet, which is what it uses for the "me" method.



Merely returns the SQL namespace for the current search with a "." at the end, allowing internal resultset methods to be defined with "$self->me" instead of "$self->current_source_alias . q(.)". Also, if you pass it a single argument it will append that to the returned string.
