NAME ^

Perl::Metrics2 - Perl metrics storage and processing engine

DESCRIPTION ^

THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL MODULE AND MAY CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE

Perl::Metrics2 is a 2nd-generation implementation of the Perl Code Metrics System.

The Perl Code Metrics System is a module which provides a Perl document metrics processing engine, and a database in which to store the resulting metrics data.

The intent is to be able to take a large collection of Perl documents, and relatively easily parse the files and run a series of processes on the documents.

The resulting data can then be stored, and later used to generate useful information about the documents.

General Structure

Perl::Metrics2 consists of two primary elements. Firstly, an ORLite database that stores the metrics informationg.

See Perl::Metrics2::FileMetrics for the data class stored in the database.

The second element is a plugin structure for creating metrics packages, so that the metrics capture can be done independant of the underlying mechanisms used for parsing, storage and analysis.

See Perl::Metrics2::Plugin for more information.

Getting Started

Perl::Metrics2 comes with on default plugin, Perl::Metrics2::Plugin::Core, which provides a sampling of metrics.

To get started load the module, providing the database location as a param (it will create it if needed). Then call the process_directory method, providing it with an absolute path to a directory of Perl code on the local filesystem.

Perl::Metrics will work on the files in the directory, and when it finishes you will have a nice database full of metrics data about your files.

Of course, how you actually USE that data is up to you, but you can query Perl::Metrics2::FileMetric just like any other ORLite database once you have collected it all.
