NAME ^

Module::Faker - build fake dists for testing CPAN tools

VERSION ^

version 0.016

SYNOPSIS ^

  Module::Faker->make_fakes({
    source => './dir-of-specs',
    dest   => './will-contain-tarballs',
  });

DESCRIPTION

Module::Faker is a tool for building fake CPAN modules and, perhaps more importantly, fake CPAN distributions. These are useful for running tools that operate against CPAN distributions without having to use real CPAN distributions. This is much more useful when testing an entire CPAN instance, rather than a single distribution, for which see CPAN::Faker.

METHODS ^

make_fakes

  Module::Faker->make_fakes(\%arg);

This method creates a new Module::Faker and builds archives in its destination directory for every dist-describing file in its source directory. See the "new" method below.

new

  my $faker = Module::Faker->new(\%arg);

This create the new Module::Faker. All arguments may be accessed later by methods of the same name. Valid arguments are:

  source - the directory in which to find source files
  dest   - the directory in which to construct dist archives

  dist_class - the class used to fake dists; default: Module::Faker::Dist
