App::Packager - Abstraction for Packagers
App::Packager provides an abstract interface to a number of common packagers, trying to catch as much common behaviour as possible.
The main purpose is to have uniform access to application specific resources.
Supported packagers are PAR::Packer, Cava::Packager and unpackaged. In the latter case, resources are looked up in @PATH, and the name of the application package must be passed to the first use of App::Packager.
use App::Packager qw(:name My::App);
print "My packager is: ", App::Packager::Packager(), "\n";
By default, function getresource is exported. It can be exported under a different name by providing an alternative name as follows:
use App::Packager( ':rsc' => '...alternative name...' );
Returns the name of the actual packager, or App Packager if unpackaged.
Returns the version of the packager.
Returns true if the application was packaged.
Note that it is usually easier, and safer, to use $App::Packager::PACKAGED for testing since that will work even if App::Packager is not available.
Returns the path name of the application resources directory.
Returns the file name of the application resource.
Returns the file name of the user specific resource.
