DESCRIPTION

App::SmokeBox::PerlVersion is a simple helper module for App::SmokeBox::Mini and minismokebox that determines version, architecture and OS version of a given perl executable.

CONSTRUCTOR

version

Takes a number of arguments:

  'perl', the perl executable to query, defaults to $^X;
  'event', the event to trigger in the calling session on finish;
  'session', a POE Session, ID, alias or postback to send results to;
  'context', optional context data you want to provide;

event is a mandatory argument unless session is provided and is a POE postback/callback.

RESPONSE

An event or postback will be sent when the module has finished with a hashref of data.

For event the hashref will be in ARG0.

For postback the hashref will be the first item in the arrayref of ARG1 in the postback.

The hashref will contain the following keys:

  'exitcode', the exit code of the perl executable that was run;
  'version', the perl version string;
  'archname', the perl archname string;
  'osvers', the OS version string;
  'context', whatever was passed to version();
