NAME ^

Run::Parts::Perl - Pure Perl implementation of Debian's run-parts tool

VERSION ^

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS ^

Pure Perl reimplementation of basic functionality of Debian's run-parts tool.

run-parts runs all the executable files named within constraints described below, found in the given directory. Other files and directories are silently ignored.

Additionally it can just print the names of the all matching files (not limited to executables, but ignores blacklisted files like e.g. backup files), but don't actually run them.

This is useful when functionality or configuration is split over multiple files in one directory.

This module is not thought to be used directly and its interface may change. See Run::Parts for a stable user interface.

FILE NAME CONSTRAINTS ^

On unix-ish operating systems, the file name (but not the path) must match ^[-A-Za-z0-9_]+$, i.e. may not contain a dot.

On dos-ish operating systems, the file name without suffix must match ^[-A-Za-z0-9_]+$, i.e. may not contain a dot. The suffix may contain alphanumeric characters and is not mandatory. The full regular expression the file name including the suffix must match is ^[-A-Za-z0-9_]+(\.[A-Za-z0-9]+)?$.

Debian's run-parts tool also offers to use alternative regular expressions as file name constraints. This is not yet implemented in Run::Parts::Perl.

METHODS ^
