NAME ^

Devel::Platform::Info - Unified framework for obtaining common platform metadata

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Devel::Platform::Info;
  my $info = Devel::Platform::Info->new();
  my $data = $info->get_info();

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a wrapper to the drivers which can determine platform metadata regarding the currently running operating system.

The intention of this distribution is to provide key identifying components regarding the platform currently being used, for the CPAN Testers test reports. Currently the reports do not often contain enough information to help authors understand specific failures, where the platform may be a factor.

However, it is hoped that this distribution will find more uses far beyond the usage for CPAN Testers.
