Module Version: 0.922   Source   Latest Release: Dist-Metadata-0.925

NAME ^

Dist::Metadata::Struct - Enable Dist::Metadata for a data structure

VERSION ^

version 0.922

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $dm = Dist::Metadata->new(struct => {
    files => {
      'lib/Mod.pm' => 'package Mod; sub something { ... }',
      'README'     => 'this is a fake dist, useful for testing',
    }
  });

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a subclass of Dist::Metadata::Dist to enable mocking up a dist from perl data structures.

This is mostly used for testing but might be useful if you already have an in-memory representation of a dist that you'd like to examine.

It's probably not very useful on it's own though, and should be used from "new" in Dist::Metadata.

METHODS ^

new

  $dist = Dist::Metadata::Struct->new(files => {
    'lib/Mod.pm' => 'package Mod; sub something { ... }',
  });

Accepts a files parameter that should be a hash of { name => content, }. Content can be a string, a reference to a string, or an IO object.

default_file_spec

Unix is the default for consistency/simplicity but file_spec can be overridden in the constructor.

file_content

Returns the string content for the specified name.

find_files

Returns the keys of the files hash.
