NAME ^

App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID - Information about the OSSP UUID library

SYNOPSIS ^

  use App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID;

  my $uuid = App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID->new;

  if ($uuid->installed) {
      print "App name: ", $uuid->name, "\n";
      print "Version:  ", $uuid->version, "\n";
      print "Bin dir:  ", $uuid->bin_dir, "\n";
  } else {
      print "Expat is not installed. :-(\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID supplies information about the OSSP UUID library installed on the local system. It implements all of the methods defined by App::Info::Lib. Methods that trigger events will trigger them only the first time they're called (See App::Info for documentation on handling events). To start over (after, say, someone has installed the OSSP UUID library) construct a new App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID object to aggregate new meta data.

Some of the methods trigger the same events. This is due to cross-calling of shared subroutines. However, any one event should be triggered no more than once. For example, although the info event "Executing `uuid-config --version`" is documented for the methods name() version(), major_version(), minor_version(), and patch_version(), rest assured that it will only be triggered once, by whichever of those four methods is called first.

INTERFACE ^

Constructor

new

  my $expat = App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID->new(@params);

Returns an App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID object. See App::Info for a complete description of argument parameters.

When called, new() searches all of the paths returned by the search_lib_dirs() method for one of the files returned by the search_lib_names() method. If any of is found, then the OSSP UUID library is assumed to be installed. Otherwise, most of the object methods will return undef.

Events:

info

Looking for uuid-config

confirm

Path to uuid-config?

unknown

Path to uuid-config?

Class Method

key_name

  my $key_name = App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID->key_name;

Returns the unique key name that describes this class. The value returned is the string "OSSP UUID".

Object Methods

installed

  print "UUID is ", ($uuid->installed ? '' : 'not '), "installed.\n";

Returns true if the OSSP UUID library is installed, and false if it is not. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID determines whether the library is installed based on the presence or absence on the file system of the uuid-config application, searched for when new() constructed the object. If the OSSP UUID library does not appear to be installed, then most of the other object methods will return empty values.

name

  my $name = $uuid->name;

Returns the name of the library. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID parses the name from the system call `uuid-config --version`.

Events:

version

  my $version = $uuid->version;

Returns the OSSP UUID version number. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID parses the version number from the system call `uuid-config --version`.

Events:

major version

  my $major_version = $uuid->major_version;

Returns the OSSP UUID library major version number. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID parses the major version number from the system call `uuid-config --version`. For example, if version() returns "1.3.0", then this method returns "1".

Events:

info

minor version

  my $minor_version = $uuid->minor_version;

Returns the OSSP UUID library minor version number. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID parses the minor version number from the system call `uuid-config --version`. For example, if version() returns "1.3.0", then this method returns "3".

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --version`

error

Failed to find OSSP UUID version with `uuid-config --version`

Unable to parse name from string

patch version

  my $patch_version = $uuid->patch_version;

Returns the OSSP UUID library patch version number. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID parses the patch version number from the system call `uuid-config --version`. For example, if version() returns "1.3.0", then this method returns "0".

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --version`

error

Failed to find OSSP UUID version with `uuid-config --version`

Unable to parse name from string

Unable to parse version from string

Failed to parse OSSP UUID version parts from string

unknown

executable

  my $exe = $uuid->executable;

Returns the full path to the OSSP UUID executable, which is named uuid. This method does not use the executable names returned by search_exe_names(); those executable names are used to search for uuid-config only (in new()).

When it called, executable() checks for an executable named uuid in the directory returned by bin_dir().

Note that executable() is simply an alias for uuid().

Events:

info

Looking for uuid executable

confirm

Path to uuid executable?

unknown

Path to uuid executable?

bin_dir

  my $bin_dir = $uuid->bin_dir;

Returns the OSSP UUID binary directory path. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID gathers the path from the system call `uuid-config --bindir`.

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --bindir`

error

Cannot find bin directory

unknown

Enter a valid OSSP UUID bin directory

inc_dir

  my $inc_dir = $uuid->inc_dir;

Returns the OSSP UUID include directory path. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID gathers the path from the system call `uuid-config --includedir`.

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --includedir`

error

Cannot find include directory

unknown

Enter a valid OSSP UUID include directory

lib_dir

  my $lib_dir = $uuid->lib_dir;

Returns the OSSP UUID library directory path. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID gathers the path from the system call `uuid-config --libdir`.

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --libdir`

error

Cannot find library directory

unknown

Enter a valid OSSP UUID library directory

so_lib_dir

  my $so_lib_dir = $uuid->so_lib_dir;

Returns the OSSP UUID shared object library directory path. This is actually just an alias for lib_dir().

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --libdir`

error

Cannot find library directory

unknown

Enter a valid OSSP UUID library directory

cflags

  my $configure = $uuid->cflags;

Returns the C flags used when compiling the OSSP UUID library. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID gathers the configure data from the system call `uuid-config --cflags`.

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --configure`

error

Cannot find configure information

unknown

Enter OSSP UUID configuration options

ldflags

  my $configure = $uuid->ldflags;

Returns the LD flags used when compiling the OSSP UUID library. App::Info::Lib::OSSPUUID gathers the configure data from the system call `uuid-config --ldflags`.

Events:

info

Executing `uuid-config --configure`

error

Cannot find configure information

unknown

Enter OSSP UUID configuration options

perl_module

  my $bool = $uuid->perl_module;

Return true if OSSP::uuid is installed and can be loaded, and false if not. OSSP::uuid must be able to be loaded by the currently running instance of the Perl interpreter.

Events:

info

Loading OSSP::uuid

home_url

  my $home_url = $uuid->home_url;

Returns the OSSP UUID home page URL.

download_url

  my $download_url = $uuid->download_url;

Returns the OSSP UUID download URL.

search_exe_names

  my @search_exe_names = $app->search_exe_names;

Returns a list of possible names for uuid-config executable. By default, only uuid-config is returned (or uuid-config.exe on Win32).

Note that this method is not used to search for the OSSP UUID server executable, only uuid-config.

search_bin_dirs

  my @search_bin_dirs = $app->search_bin_dirs;

Returns a list of possible directories in which to search an executable. Used by the new() constructor to find an executable to execute and collect application info. The found directory will also be returned by the bin_dir method.

The list of directories by default consists of the path as defined by File::Spec->path, as well as the following directories:

/usr/local/bin
/usr/local/sbin
/usr/bin
/usr/sbin
/bin
C:\Program Files\uid\bin

Other Executable Methods

These methods function just like the executable() method, except that they return different executables. OSSP UUID comes with a fair number of them; we provide these methods to provide a path to a subset of them. Each method, when called, checks for an executable in the directory returned by bin_dir(). The name of the executable must be one of the names returned by the corresponding search_*_names method.

The available executable methods are:

uuid
uuid_config

And the corresponding search names methods are:

search_postgres_names
search_createdb_names

Events:

info

Looking for executable

confirm

Path to executable?

unknown

Path to executable?
