NAME ^

Module::Packaged - Report upon packages of CPAN distributions

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Module::Packaged;

  my $p = Module::Packaged->new();
  my $dists = $p->check('Archive-Tar');
  # $dists is now:
  # {
  # cpan    => '1.08',
  # debian  => '1.03',
  # fedora  => '0.22',
  # freebsd => '1.07',
  # gentoo  => '1.05',
  # openbsd => '0.22',
  # suse    => '0.23',
  # }

  # meaning that Archive-Tar is at version 1.08 on CPAN but only at
  # version 1.07 on FreeBSD, version 1.05 on Gentoo, version 1.03 on
  # Debian, version 0.23 on SUSE and version 0.22 on OpenBSD

DESCRIPTION ^

CPAN consists of distributions. However, CPAN is not an isolated system - distributions are also packaged in other places, such as for operating systems. This module reports whether CPAN distributions are packaged for various operating systems, and which version they have.

Note: only CPAN, Debian, Fedora (Core 2), FreeBSD, Gentoo, Mandriva (10.1), OpenBSD (3.6) and SUSE (9.2) are currently supported. I want to support everything else. Patches are welcome.

METHODS ^

new()

The new() method is a constructor:

  my $p = Module::Packaged->new();

check()

The check() method returns a hash reference. The keys are various distributions, the values the version number included:

  my $dists = $p->check('Archive-Tar');
