NAME ^

Perl::PrereqScanner - a tool to scan your Perl code for its prerequisites

VERSION ^

version 1.020

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Perl::PrereqScanner;
  my $scanner = Perl::PrereqScanner->new;
  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_ppi_document( $ppi_doc );
  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_file( $file_path );
  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_string( $perl_code );
  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_module( $module_name );

DESCRIPTION ^

The scanner will extract loosely your distribution prerequisites from your files.

The extraction may not be perfect but tries to do its best. It will currently find the following prereqs:

Scanner Plugins

Perl::PrereqScanner works by running a series of scanners over a PPI::Document representing the code to scan. By default the "Perl5", "Moose", "TestMore", "POE", and "Aliased" scanners are run. You can supply your own scanners when constructing your PrereqScanner:

  # Us only the Perl5 scanner:
  my $scanner = Perl::PrereqScanner->new({ scanners => [ qw(Perl5) ] });

  # Use any stock scanners, plus Example:
  my $scanner = Perl::PrereqScanner->new({ extra_scanners => [ qw(Example) ] });

METHODS ^

scan_string

  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_string( $perl_code );

Given a string containing Perl source code, this method returns a CPAN::Meta::Requirements object describing the modules it requires.

This method will throw an exception if PPI fails to parse the code.

Warning! It isn't entirely clear whether PPI prefers to receive strings as octet strings or character strings. For now, my advice is to pass octet strings.

scan_file

  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_file( $path );

Given a file path to a Perl document, this method returns a CPAN::Meta::Requirements object describing the modules it requires.

This method will throw an exception if PPI fails to parse the code.

scan_ppi_document

  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_ppi_document( $ppi_doc );

Given a PPI::Document, this method returns a CPAN::Meta::Requirements object describing the modules it requires.

scan_module

  my $prereqs = $scanner->scan_module( $module_name );

Given the name of a module, eg 'PPI::Document', this method returns a CPAN::Meta::Requirements object describing the modules it requires.

SEE ALSO ^

scan-perl-prereqs, in this distribution, is a command-line interface to the scanner
