NAME ^

Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File - Methods analyzing a single file.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File;
  my $object = Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File->new(file => 'path/to/file');

VERSION ^

This is VERSION 0.1

DESCRIPTION ^

A Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File object is created by Perl::Metrics::Simple for each file analyzed. These objects are aggregated into a Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis object by Perl::Metrics::Simple.

In general you will not use this class directly, instead you will use Perl::Metrics::Simple, but there's no harm in exposing the various methods this class provides.

CLASS METHODS ^

new

Takes named parameters, current only the path parameter is recognized:

  my $file_results = BPerl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File->new( path => $path );

Returns a new Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File object which has been populated with the results of analyzing the file at path.

Throws an exception if the path is missing or unreadable.

OBJECT METHODS ^

Call on an object.

all_counts

Convenience method. Takes no arguments and returns a hashref of all counts: { path => $self->path, lines => $self->lines, main_stats => $self->main_stats, subs => $self->subs, packages => $self->packages, }

analyze_main

Takes a PPI document and an arrayref of PPI::Statement::Sub objects and returns a hashref with information about the 'main' (non-subroutine) portions of the document:

  {
    lines             => $lines,      # Line count outside subs. Skips comments and pod.
    mccabe_complexity => $complexity, # Cyclomatic complexity of all non-sub areas
    path              => '/path/to/file',
    name              => '{code not in named subroutines}',  # always the same name
  };

get_node_length

Takes a PPI node and returns a count of the newlines it contains. PPI normalizes line endings to newlines so CR/LF, CR and LF all come out the same. The line counts reported by the various methods in this class all exclude blank lines, comment lines and pod (the PPI document is pruned before counting.)

lines

Total non-blank, non-comment, non-pod lines.

main_stats

Returns the hashref generated by analyze_main without re-analyzing document.

logic_keywords

Returns an array (in array context) or ref-to-ARRAY of the keywords used in calculating complexity. See Logic Keywords section below.

logic_operators

Returns an array (in array context) or ref-to-ARRAY of the operators used in calculating complexity. See Logic Operators section below.

measure_complexity

Takes a PPI element and measures an approximation of the McCabe Complexity (aka Cyclomatic Complexity) of the code.

McCabe Complexity is basically a count of how many paths there are through the code.

We use a simplified method for counting this, which ignores things like the possibility that a 'use' statement could throw an exception.

The actual measurement we use for a chunk of code is 1 plus 1 each logic keyword or operator:

Logic operators:

The default list is:

@Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File::DEFAULT_LOGIC_OPERATORS

    !
    !~
    &&
    &&=
    //
    <
    <<=
    <=>
    ==
    =~
    >
    >>=
    ?
    and
    cmp
    eq
    gt
    lt
    ne
    not
    or
    xor
    ||
    ||=
    ~~

You can supply your own list by setting: @Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File::LOGIC_OPERATORS before creating a new object.

Logic keywords:

@Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File::DEFAULT_LOGIC_KEYWORDS

    else
    elsif
    for
    foreach 
    goto
    grep
    if
    last
    map
    next
    unless
    until
    while

You can supply your own list by setting: @Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File::LOGIC_KEYWORDS before creating a new object.

Examples of Complexity

Here are a couple of examples of how we count complexity:

Example of complexity count of 1:

   use Foo;
   print "Hello world.\n";
   exit;

Example of complexity count of 2:

   if ( $a ) {         # The "if" adds 1.
       # do something
   }

Example of complexity count of 6:

    sub foo {                              # 1: for non-empty code
       if ( @list ) {                      # 1: "if"
           foreach my $x ( @list ) {       # 1: "foreach"
               if ( ! $x ) {               # 2: 1 for "if" and 1 for "!"
                   do_something($x);
               }
               else {                      # 1 for "else"
                   do_something_else($x);
               }
           }
       }
       return;
    }

packages

Arrayref of unique packages found in the file.

path

Either the path to the file, or a scalar ref if that was supplied instaed of a path.

subs

Count of subroutines found.

STATIC PACKAGE SUBROUTINES ^

Utility subs used internally, but no harm in exposing them for now.

hashify

 %hash = Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File::hashify(@list);

Takes an array and returns a hash using the array values as the keys and with the values all set to 1.

is_hash_key

 $boolean = Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis::File::is_hash_key($ppi_element);

Takes a PPI::Element and returns true if the element is a hash key, for example foo and bar are hash keys in the following:

  { foo => 123, bar => $a }
