Module Version: 1.01   Source   Latest Release: Module-Extract-VERSION-1.10_01

NAME ^

Module::Extract::VERSION - Extract a module version without running code

SYNOPSIS ^

        use Module::Extract::VERSION;

        my $version   # just the version
                = Module::Extract::VERSION->parse_version_safely( $file );

        my @version_info # extra info
                = Module::Extract::VERSION->parse_version_safely( $file );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module lets you pull out of module source code the version number for the module. It assumes that there is only one $VERSION in the file.

Class methods

$class->parse_version_safely( FILE );

Given a module file, return the module version. This works just like mldistwatch in PAUSE. It looks for the single line that has the $VERSION statement, extracts it, evals it, and returns the result.

In scalar context, it returns just the version as a string. In list context, it returns the list of:

        sigil
        fully-qualified variable name
        version value
        file name
        line number of $VERSION

SOURCE AVAILABILITY ^

I stole the some of this code from mldistwatch in the PAUSE code by Andreas König, but I've moved most of it around.
