NAME ^

VERSION ^

version 0.002

SYNOPSIS ^

  # Construction
  my $perms = Parse::CPAN::Perms->new('path/to/06perms.txt.gz');

DESCRIPTION ^

!! THIS MODULE IS EXPERIMENTAL. INTERFACE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE !!

This module parses the 06perms.txt.gz file from a CPAN-like repository. At this time, it only parses the compressed form and it provides no mechanism for adding new permissions or writing the data back out to a file. If you desire those features, please contact the author.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

new('path/to/06perms.txt.gz')
new(parmsfile => 'path/to/06perms.txt.gz')

Constructs a new instance of Parse::CPAN::Perms from the specified perms file. The file must exist and must be readable.

METHODS

perms()

Returns all the permission data as a hash reference

is_authorized(AUTHOR => 'Package::Name')

Returns true if the author has permission for the package

SEE ALSO ^

CPAN::Repository::Perms serves a similar purpose, but is a much more robust module. However, it is bundled with several other CPAN-related modules which may or may not fit your needs and desires.

SUPPORT ^
