App::DualLivedDiff - Diff between the perl core and dual-lived modules' CPAN distributions
Given a simple YAML file .dualLivedDiffConfig in the current working directory or the Filter::Simple CPAN distribution:
--- exclude-regexes: - ^(?:\./)?MANIFEST$ - ^(?:\./)?META.yml$ files: lib/Filter/Simple.pm: lib/Filter/Simple.pm Changes: lib/Filter/Simple/Changes dirs-flat: t/: lib/Filter/Simple/t/ dirs-recursive: t/lib/Filter/Simple/: t/lib/Filter/Simple/
By running the following command, you can get the diff between your blead perl checkout and the CPAN distribution:
dualLivedDiff --dual http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/S/SM/SMUELLER/Filter-Simple-0.84.tar.gz --blead $HOME/perl-ssh
Or this if you have CPAN.pm configured:
dualLivedDiff --dual SMUELLER/Filter-Simple-0.84.tar.gz --blead $HOME/perl-ssh
Or this if you want to search for a given module name:
dualLivedDiff --dual Filter::Simple --blead $HOME/perl-ssh
You can use the
base-path-in-blead option in the YAML config file to set a base path within the blead-perl checkout. Example of the configuration for the Attribute::Handlers dual-lived module/distribution which lives entirely within ext/Attribute-Handlers:
--- base-path-in-blead: ext/Attribute-Handlers files: Changes: Changes README: README dirs-recursive: lib/: lib/ t/: t/ demo/: demo/
Run the "dualLivedDiff" program to get an overview of the command line options.
Very early version of a tool to automatically generate diffs/patches between CPAN distributions of dual lived Perl modules and the perl core. The code isn't beautiful. It's a hack.
