Module::CPANfile

NAME

Module::CPANfile − Parse cpanfile

SYNOPSIS

  use Module::CPANfile;
  my $file = Module::CPANfile−>load("cpanfile");
  my $prereqs = $file−>prereqs; # CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object
  my @features = $file−>features; # CPAN::Meta::Feature objects
  my $merged_prereqs = $file−>prereqs_with(@identifiers); # CPAN::Meta::Prereqs
  $file−>merge_meta('MYMETA.json');

DESCRIPTION

Module::CPANfile is a tool to handle cpanfile format to load application specific dependencies, not just for CPAN distributions.

METHODS

load

  $file = Module::CPANfile−>load;
  $file = Module::CPANfile−>load('cpanfile');

Load and parse a cpanfile. By default it tries to load "cpanfile" in the current directory, unless you pass the path to its argument.

from_prereqs

  $file = Module::CPANfile−>from_prereqs({
    runtime => { requires => { DBI => '1.000' } },
  });

Creates a new Module::CPANfile object from prereqs hash you can get via CPAN::Meta’s "prereqs", or CPAN::Meta::Prereqs’ "as_string_hash".

  # read MYMETA, then feed the prereqs to create Module::CPANfile
  my $meta = CPAN::Meta−>load_file('MYMETA.json');
  my $file = Module::CPANfile−>from_prereqs($meta−>prereqs);
  # load cpanfile, then recreate it with round−trip
  my $file = Module::CPANfile−>load('cpanfile');
  $file = Module::CPANfile−>from_prereqs($file−>prereq_specs);
                                    # or $file−>prereqs−>as_string_hash

prereqs

Returns CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object out of the parsed cpanfile.

prereq_specs

Returns a hash reference that should be passed to "CPAN::Meta::Prereqs−>new".

features

Returns a list of features available in the cpanfile as CPAN::Meta::Feature.

prereqs_with(@identifiers), effective_prereqs(\@identifiers)

Returns CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object, with merged prereqs for features identified with the @identifiers.

to_string($include_empty)

  $file−>to_string;
  $file−>to_string(1);

Returns a canonical string (code) representation for cpanfile. Useful if you want to convert CPAN::Meta::Prereqs to a new cpanfile.

  # read MYMETA's prereqs and print cpanfile representation of it
  my $meta = CPAN::Meta−>load_file('MYMETA.json');
  my $file = Module::CPANfile−>from_prereqs($meta−>prereqs);
  print $file−>to_string;

By default, it omits the phase where there’re no modules registered. If you pass the argument of a true value, it will print them as well.

save

  $file−>save('cpanfile');

Saves the currently loaded prereqs as a new "cpanfile" by calling "to_string". Beware this method will overwrite the existing cpanfile without any warning or backup. Taking a backup or giving warnings to users is a caller’s responsibility.

  # Read MYMETA.json and creates a new cpanfile
  my $meta = CPAN::Meta−>load_file('MYMETA.json');
  my $file = Module::CPANfile−>from_prereqs($meta−>prereqs);
  $file−>save('cpanfile');

merge_meta

  $file−>merge_meta('META.yml');
  $file−>merge_meta('MYMETA.json', '2.0');

Merge the effective prereqs with Meta specification loaded from the given META file, using CPAN::Meta. You can specify the META spec version in the second argument, which defaults to 1.4 in case the given file is YAML, and 2 if it is JSON.
