NAME ^

BackPAN::Version::Discover::Results - The results from BackPAN::Version::Discover

VERSION ^

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS ^

See the documentation for BackPAN::Version::Discover for more info, like how to get this object with useful data in it.

    # assuming $results is a BackPAN::Version::Discover::Results object...
    
    my @releases        = $results->release_paths();
    my @vendor_mods     = $results->vendor_mods();
    my @unmatched_dists = $results->unmatched_dists();

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

new

Creates a new BackPAN::Version::Discover::Results object with the given parameters.

Note: You should never need to create this object directly!

Parameters:

release_paths

returns a list of paths to the release tarballs as can be found on a backpan mirror.

vendor_mods

returns a list of the names of modules that were likely installed via a vendor package, ie. Dpkg or RPM or ebuild, et al.

Note: since the same module can be installed in several places with several different versions, these modules are the ones that perl would load if they were used in a script.

unmatched_dists

returns a list of the names of CPAN distributions that appear to be installed, but a matching backpan release could not be determined.

You may have to track it down manually, or better yet, send me a patch!
