NAME ^

  PPM::Make::Search - search for info to make ppm packages

SYNOPSIS ^

  use PPM::Make::Search;
  my $search = PPM::Make::Search->new();

  my @query = qw(Net::FTP Math::Complex);
  $search->search(\@query, mode => 'mod') or $search->search_error();
  my $results = $search->{mod_results};
  # print results

DESCRIPTION ^

This module either queries a remote SOAP server (if SOAP::Lite is available), uses CPAN.pm, if configured, or uses LWP::Simple for a connection to http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/ to provide information on either modules or distributions needed to make a ppm package. The basic object is created as

  my $search = PPM::Make::Search->new();

with searches being performed as

  my @query = qw(Net::FTP Math::Complex);
  $search->search(\@query, mode => 'mod') or $search->search_error();

The first argument to the search method is either a string containing the name of the module or distribution, or else an array reference containing module or distribution names. The results are contained in $search->{mod_results}, for module queries, or $search->{dist_results}, for distribution queries. Supported values of mode are

mode => 'mod'

This is used to search for modules. The query term must match exactly, in a case sensitive manner. The results are returned as a hash reference, the keys being the module name, and the associated values containing the information in the form:

  my @query = qw(Net::FTP Math::Complex);
  $search->search(\@query, mode => 'mod') or $search->search_error();
  my $results = $search->{mod_results};
  foreach my $m(keys %$results) {
    my $info = $results->{$m};
    print <<"END"
  For module $m:
   Module: $info->{mod_name}
    Version: $info->{mod_vers}
    Description: $info->{mod_abs}
    Author: $info->{author}
    CPANID: $info->{cpanid}
    CPAN file: $info->{dist_file}
    Distribution: $info->{dist_name}
  END
  }
mode => 'dist'

This is used to search for distributions. The query term must match exactly, in a case sensitive manner. The results are returned as a hash reference, the keys being the distribution name, and the associated values containing the information in the form:

  my @d = qw(Math-Complex libnet);
  $search->search(\@d, mode => 'dist') or $search->search_error();
  my $results = $search->{dist_results};
  foreach my $d(keys %$results) {
    my $info = $results->{$d};
    print <<"END";
   For distribution $d:
    Distribution: $info->{dist_name}
    Version: $info->{dist_vers}
    Description: $info->{dist_abs}
    Author: $info->{author}
    CPAN file: $info->{dist_file}
  END
    my @mods = @{$info->{mods}};
    foreach (@mods) {
      print "Contains module $_->{mod_name}: Version: $_->{mod_vers}\n";
    }
  }
