NAME ^

CPAN::Testers::Common::Utils - Utility functions for CPAN Testers modules

VERSION ^

version 0.003

SYNOPSIS ^

    use CPAN::Testers::Common::Utils ':all';

    # NNTP ID <=> GUID mapping
    $guid    = nntp_to_guid( $nntp_id );
    $nntp_id = guid_to_nntp( $guid    );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module contains common utility functions for use by other CPAN Testers modules

USAGE ^

Mapping NNTP IDs to GUIDs

Legacy CPAN Testers reports were sent via email and made available via an NNTP group, perl.cpan.testers. Reports were 'indexed' by their NNTP ID. The next generation of CPAN Testers uses a GUID URN to identify reports.

Old reports with an NNTP ID are mapped to GUIDs by replacing the first 8 hex characters of a common 'base GUID' with a zero-padded decimal representation of the NNTP ID.

  XXXXXXXX-b19f-3f77-b713-d32bba55d77f

Such GUID URNs are visually distinctive and have the nice feature of sorting earlier than second-generated report GUIDs based on a timestamp.

Two translation functions are provided for convenience.

nntp_to_guid

    $guid    = nntp_to_guid( $nntp_id );

Given a numeric NNTP ID, returns a standard string-form GUID. (No range checking is done.) Examples:

  nntp_to_guid( 51432   );  # 00051432-b19f-3f77-b713-d32bba55d77f
  nntp_to_guid( 6171265 );  # 06171265-b19f-3f77-b713-d32bba55d77f

guid_to_nntp

    $guid    = nntp_to_guid( $nntp_id );

Given a GUID string of the form described above, returns the decimal number in the first 8 characters. Examples:

  guid_to_nntp( '00051432-b19f-3f77-b713-d32bba55d77f' ); # 51432
  guid_to_nntp( '06171265-b19f-3f77-b713-d32bba55d77f' ); # 6171265

If the GUID string is not derived from the base GUID, this function returns undef.
