DESCRIPTION ^

new_from_file($filename, collect_pod => 1)

Construct a ModuleInfo object given the path to a file. Takes an optional arguement collect_pod which is a boolean that determines whether POD data is collected and stored for reference. POD data is not collected by default. POD headings are always collected.

new_from_module($module, collect_pod => 1, inc => \@dirs)

Construct a ModuleInfo object given a module or package name. In addition to accepting the collect_pod argument as described above, this method accepts a inc arguemnt which is a reference to an array of of directories to search for the module. If none are given, the default is @INC.

name()

version($package)

Returns the version as defined by the $VERSION variable for the package as returned by the name method if no arguments are given. If given the name of a package it will attempt to return the version of that package if it is specified in the file.

filename()

Returns the absolute path to the file.

packages_inside()

Returns a list of packages.

pod_inside()

Returns a list of POD sections.

contains_pod()

Returns true if there is any POD in the file.

pod($section)

Returns the POD data in the given section.

find_module_by_name($module, \@dirs)

Returns the path to a module given the module or package name. A list of directories can be passed in as an optional paramater, otherwise @INC is searched.

Can be called as either an object or a class method.

find_module_dir_by_name($module, \@dirs)

Returns the entry in @dirs (or @INC by default) that contains the module $module. A list of directories can be passed in as an optional paramater, otherwise @INC is searched.
