CPANPLUS::Internals

NAME

CPANPLUS::Internals

SYNOPSIS

  1. my $internals = CPANPLUS::Internals->_init( _conf => $conf );
  2. my $backend = CPANPLUS::Internals->_retrieve_id( $ID );

DESCRIPTION

This module is the guts of CPANPLUS -- it inherits from all other modules in the CPANPLUS::Internals::* namespace, thus defying normal rules of OO programming -- but if you're reading this, you already know what's going on ;)

Please read the CPANPLUS::Backend documentation for the normal API.

ACCESSORS

  • _conf

    Get/set the configure object

  • _id

    Get/set the id

METHODS

$internals = CPANPLUS::Internals->_init( _conf => CONFIG_OBJ )

_init creates a new CPANPLUS::Internals object.

You have to pass it a valid CPANPLUS::Configure object.

Returns the object on success, or dies on failure.

$bool = $internals->_flush( list => \@caches )

Flushes the designated caches from the CPANPLUS object.

Returns true on success, false if one or more caches could not be be flushed.

$bool = $internals->_register_callback( name => CALLBACK_NAME, code => CODEREF );

Registers a callback for later use by the internal libraries.

Here is a list of the currently used callbacks:

  • install_prerequisite

    Is called when the user wants to be asked about what to do with prerequisites. Should return a boolean indicating true to install the prerequisite and false to skip it.

  • send_test_report

    Is called when the user should be prompted if he wishes to send the test report. Should return a boolean indicating true to send the test report and false to skip it.

  • munge_test_report

    Is called when the test report message has been composed, giving the user a chance to programatically alter it. Should return the (munged) message to be sent.

  • edit_test_report

    Is called when the user should be prompted to edit test reports about to be sent out by Test::Reporter. Should return a boolean indicating true to edit the test report in an editor and false to skip it.

  • proceed_on_test_failure

    Is called when 'make test' or 'Build test' fails. Should return a boolean indicating whether the install should continue even if the test failed.

  • munge_dist_metafile

    Is called when the CPANPLUS::Dist::* metafile is created, like control for CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb , giving the user a chance to programatically alter it. Should return the (munged) text to be written to the metafile.

$bool = $internals->_add_to_includepath( directories => \@dirs )

Adds a list of directories to the include path. This means they get added to @INC as well as $ENV{PERL5LIB} .

Returns true on success, false on failure.

$id = CPANPLUS::Internals->_last_id

Return the id of the last object stored.

$id = CPANPLUS::Internals->_store_id( $internals )

Store this object; return its id.

$obj = CPANPLUS::Internals->_retrieve_id( $ID )

Retrieve an object based on its ID -- return false on error.

CPANPLUS::Internals->_remove_id( $ID )

Remove the object marked by $ID from storage.

@objs = CPANPLUS::Internals->_return_all_objects

Return all stored objects.
