NAME ^

PPM::Make::RepositorySummary - generate summary files for a ppm repository

SYNOPSIS ^

   use PPM::Make::RepositorySummary;
   my $rep = '/path/to/ppms';
   my $obj = PPM::Make::RepositorySummary->new(rep => $rep);
   $obj->summary();

DESCRIPTION ^

This module may be used to generate various summary files as used by ActiveState's ppm system. It searches a given directory for ppd files, which are of the form

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <SOFTPKG NAME="Archive-Tar" VERSION="1,29,0,0">
    <TITLE>Archive-Tar</TITLE>
    <ABSTRACT>Manipulates TAR archives</ABSTRACT>

    <IMPLEMENTATION>

      <CODEBASE HREF="Archive-Tar.tar.gz" />
    </IMPLEMENTATION>
  </SOFTPKG>

and generates four types of files summarizing the information found in all ppd files found:

summary.ppm

If multiple <IMPLEMETATION> sections are present in the ppd file, all will be included in the corresponding summary files.

Options accepted by the new constructor include

rep => '/path/to/ppds'

This option, which is required, specifies the path to where the ppd files are found. The summary files will be written in this directory.

no_ppm4 => 1

If this option is specified, the package.xml file (which contains some extensions used by ppm4) will not be generated.

arch => 'MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.8'

If this option is given, it will be used as the ARCHITECTURE attribute of the REPOSITORYSUMMARY element of package.xml.
