NAME ^

PAR::Repository::Query - Implements repository queries

SYNOPSIS ^

  use PAR::Repository;
  # or:
  use PAR::Repository::Client;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is for internal use by PAR::Repository or PAR::Repository::Client only. Both modules inherit from this. PAR::Repository::Query implements a unified query interface for both the server- and client-side components of PAR repositories.

If you decide to inherit from this class (for whatever reason), you should provide at least two methods: modules_dbm which returns a DBM::Deep object representing the modules DBM file. (See PAR::Repository::DBM for details.) And scripts_dbm which is the equivalent for the scripts DBM file.

EXPORT

None. But the methods are callable on PAR::Repository and PAR::Repository::Client objects.

METHODS ^

Following is a list of class and instance methods. (Instance methods until otherwise mentioned.)

There is no PAR::Repository::Query object.

query_module

Polls the repository for modules matching certain criteria. Takes named arguments. Either a regex or a name parameter must be present but not both.

Returns a reference to an array containing alternating distribution file names and module versions. This method returns the following structure

  [ 'Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par', '0.01', ... ]

that means the module was found in the distribution Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par and the copy in that file has version 0.01.

Parameters:

name

The name of the module to look for. This is used for an exact match. If you want to find Foo in Foo::Bar, use the regex parameter. Only one of name and regex may be specified.

regex

Same as name, but interpreted as a regular expression. Only one of name and regex may be specified.

arch

Can be used to reduce the number of matches to a specific architecture. Always interpreted as a regular expression.

query_script

Note: Usually, you probably want to use query_script_hash() instead. The usage of both methods is very similar (and described right below), but the data structure returned differes somewhat.

Polls the repository for scripts matching certain criteria. Takes named arguments. Either a regex or a name parameter must be present but not both.

Returns a reference to an array containing alternating distribution file names and script versions. This method returns the following structure

  [ 'Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par', '0.01', ... ]

that means the script was found in the distribution Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par and the copy in that file has version 0.01.

Parameters:

name

The name of the script to look for. This is used for an exact match. If you want to find foo in foobar, use the regex parameter. Only one of name and regex may be specified.

regex

Same as name, but interpreted as a regular expression. Only one of name and regex may be specified.

arch

Can be used to reduce the number of matches to a specific architecture. Always interpreted as a regular expression.

query_script_hash

Works exactly the same as query_script except it returns a different resulting structure which includes the matching script's name:

  { 'fooscript' => { 'Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par' => '0.01', ... }, ... }

that means the script fooscript was found in the distribution Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par and the copy in that file has version 0.01.

Parameters are the same as for query_script

query_dist

Polls the repository for distributions matching certain criteria. Takes named arguments. Either a regex or a name parameter must be present but not both.

Returns a reference to an array containing alternating distribution file names and hash references. The hashes contain module names and associated versions in the distribution. This method returns the following structure

  [
    'Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par',
    {Foo::Bar => '0.01', Foo::Bar::Baz => '0.02'},
    ...
  ]

that means the distribution Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.7.par matched and that distribution contains the modules Foo::Bar and Foo::Bar::Baz with versions 0.01 and 0.02 respectively.

Parameters:

name

The name of the distribution to look for. This is used for an exact match. If you want to find Foo in Foo-Bar-0.01-any_arch-5.8.8.par, use the regex parameter. Only one of name and regex may be specified.

regex

Same as name, but interpreted as a regular expression. Only one of name and regex may be specified.

arch

Can be used to reduce the number of matches to a specific architecture. Always interpreted as a regular expression.
