CPANPLUS::Dist

NAME

CPANPLUS::Dist

SYNOPSIS

  1. my $dist = CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE->new(
  2. module => $modobj,
  3. );

DESCRIPTION

CPANPLUS::Dist is a base class for CPANPLUS::Dist::MM and CPANPLUS::Dist::Build . Developers of other CPANPLUS::Dist::* plugins should look at CPANPLUS::Dist::Base .

ACCESSORS

  • parent()

    Returns the CPANPLUS::Module object that parented this object.

  • status()

    Returns the Object::Accessor object that keeps the status for this module.

STATUS ACCESSORS

All accessors can be accessed as follows: $deb->status->ACCESSOR

  • created()

    Boolean indicating whether the dist was created successfully. Explicitly set to 0 when failed, so a value of undef may be interpreted as not yet attempted .

  • installed()

    Boolean indicating whether the dist was installed successfully. Explicitly set to 0 when failed, so a value of undef may be interpreted as not yet attempted .

  • uninstalled()

    Boolean indicating whether the dist was uninstalled successfully. Explicitly set to 0 when failed, so a value of undef may be interpreted as not yet attempted .

  • dist()

    The location of the final distribution. This may be a file or directory, depending on how your distribution plug in of choice works. This will be set upon a successful create.

$dist = CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE->new( module => MODOBJ );

Create a new CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE object based on the provided MODOBJ .

*** DEPRECATED *** The optional argument format is used to indicate what type of dist you would like to create (like CPANPLUS::Dist::MM or CPANPLUS::Dist::Build and so on ).

CPANPLUS::Dist->new is exlusively meant as a method to be inherited by CPANPLUS::Dist::MM|Build .

Returns a CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE object on success and false on failure.

@dists = CPANPLUS::Dist->dist_types;

Returns a list of the CPANPLUS::Dist::* classes available

$bool = CPANPLUS::Dist->rescan_dist_types;

Rescans @INC for available dist types. Useful if you've installed new CPANPLUS::Dist::* classes and want to make them available to the current process.

$bool = CPANPLUS::Dist->has_dist_type( $type )

Returns true if distribution type $type is loaded/supported.

$bool = $dist->prereq_satisfied( modobj => $modobj, version => $version_spec )

Returns true if this prereq is satisfied. Returns false if it's not. Also issues an error if it seems "unsatisfiable," i.e. if it can't be found on CPAN or the latest CPAN version doesn't satisfy it.

$configure_requires = $dist->find_configure_requires( [file => /path/to/META.yml] )

Reads the configure_requires for this distribution from the META.yml file in the root directory and returns a hashref with module names and versions required.

$bool = $dist->_resolve_prereqs( ... )

Makes sure prerequisites are resolved

  1. format The dist class to use to make the prereqs
  2. (ie. CPANPLUS::Dist::MM)
  3. prereqs Hash of the prerequisite modules and their versions
  4. target What to do with the prereqs.
  5. create => Just build them
  6. install => Install them
  7. ignore => Ignore them
  8. prereq_build If true, always build the prereqs even if already
  9. resolved
  10. verbose Be verbose
  11. force Force the prereq to be built, even if already resolved
