CPAN::Plugin::Specfile

NAME

CPAN::Plugin::Specfile - Proof of concept implementation of a trivial CPAN::Plugin

SYNOPSIS

  1. # once in the cpan shell
  2. o conf plugin_list push CPAN::Plugin::Specfile
  3. # make permanent
  4. o conf commit
  5. # any time in the cpan shell to write a spec file
  6. test Acme::Meta
  7. # disable
  8. o conf plugin_list pop

DESCRIPTION

Implemented as a post-test hook, this plugin writes a specfile after every successful test run. The content is also written to the terminal.

As a side effect, the timestamps of the written specfiles reflect the linear order of all dependencies.

WARNING: This code is just a small demo how to use the plugin system of the CPAN shell, not a full fledged spec file writer. Do not expect new features in this plugin.

OPTIONS

The target directory to store the spec files in can be set using dir as in

  1. o conf plugin_list push CPAN::Plugin::Specfile=dir,/tmp/specfiles-000042

The default directory for this is the plugins/CPAN::Plugin::Specfile directory in the cpan_home directory.
