NAME ^

App::DualLivedDiff - Diff between the perl core and dual-lived modules' CPAN distributions

SYNOPSIS ^

Example: Filter::Simple.

Given a simple YAML file .dualLivedDiffConfig in the current working directory or the Filter::Simple CPAN distribution:

  ---
  exclude-regexes:
    - ^(?:\./)?MANIFEST$
    - ^(?:\./)?META.yml$
  files:
    lib/Filter/Simple.pm: lib/Filter/Simple.pm
    Changes: lib/Filter/Simple/Changes
  dirs-flat:
    t/: lib/Filter/Simple/t/
  dirs-recursive:
    t/lib/Filter/Simple/: t/lib/Filter/Simple/

By running the following command, you can get the diff between your blead perl checkout and the CPAN distribution:

  dualLivedDiff --dual http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/S/SM/SMUELLER/Filter-Simple-0.84.tar.gz --blead $HOME/perl-ssh

Or this if you have CPAN.pm configured:

  dualLivedDiff --dual SMUELLER/Filter-Simple-0.84.tar.gz --blead $HOME/perl-ssh

Or this if you want to search for a given module name:

  dualLivedDiff --dual Filter::Simple --blead $HOME/perl-ssh

You can use the base-path-in-blead option in the YAML config file to set a base path within the blead-perl checkout. Example of the configuration for the Attribute::Handlers dual-lived module/distribution which lives entirely within ext/Attribute-Handlers:

  ---
  base-path-in-blead: ext/Attribute-Handlers
  files:
    Changes: Changes
    README: README
  dirs-recursive:
    lib/: lib/
    t/: t/
    demo/: demo/

Run the "dualLivedDiff" program to get an overview of the command line options.

DESCRIPTION ^

Very early version of a tool to automatically generate diffs/patches between CPAN distributions of dual lived Perl modules and the perl core. The code isn't beautiful. It's a hack.
