App::DiffTarballs - Diff contents of two tarballs
This document describes version 0.005 of App::DiffTarballs (from Perl distribution App-DiffTarballs), released on 2021-05-10.
See the included script diff-tarballs.
diff_tarballs(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]
Diff contents of two tarballs.
Show diff between two Perl releases:
tarball1 => "My-Dist-1.001.tar.gz",
tarball2 => "My-Dist-1.002.tar.bz2"
This utility extracts the two tarballs to temporary directories and then performs diff -ruN against the two. It deletes the temporary directories afterwards.
This function is not exported.
Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):
tarball1* => filename
tarball2* => filename
Returns an enveloped result (an array).
First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.
Return value: (any)
Bool. If set to true, will cause temporary directories to not being cleaned up after the program is done.
String. Set diff command to use. Defaults to diff -ruN. For example, you can set it to diff --color -ruN (--color requires GNU diff 3.4 or later), or colordiff -ruN.
diff --color -ruN
If set (and "DIFF" is not set), will add --color=never option to diff command.
If set to true (and "DIFF" is not set), will add --color=always option to diff command.
If set to false (and "DIFF" is not set), will add --color=never option to diff command.
Note that "NO_COLOR" takes precedence.
