CPAN::Plugin::Specfile - Proof of concept implementation of a trivial CPAN::Plugin
# once in the cpan shell o conf plugin_list push CPAN::Plugin::Specfile # make permanent o conf commit # any time in the cpan shell to write a spec file test Acme::Meta # disable o conf plugin_list pop
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.
The target directory to store the spec files in can be set using
dir as in
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.
