App::lcpan::Cmd::core_or_pp - Check that a module (with its prereqs) are all core/PP


This document describes version 0.051 of App::lcpan::Cmd::core_or_pp (from Perl distribution App-lcpan-CmdBundle-core_or_pp), released on 2021-02-13.


This module handles the lcpan subcommand core-or-pp.




 handle_cmd(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

Check that a module (with its prereqs) are all core/PP.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • core => bool

  • core_or_pp => bool

  • cpan => dirname

    Location of your local CPAN mirror, e.g. /path/to/cpan.

    Defaults to ~/cpan.

  • index_name => filename (default: "index.db")

    Filename of index.

    If index_name is a filename without any path, e.g. index.db then index will be located in the top-level of cpan. If index_name contains a path, e.g. ./index.db or /home/ujang/lcpan.db then the index will be located solely using the index_name.

  • modules* => array[perl::modname]

  • pp => bool

  • use_bootstrap => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to use bootstrap database from App-lcpan-Bootstrap.

    If you are indexing your private CPAN-like repository, you want to turn this off.

  • with_prereqs => bool

  • with_recursive_prereqs => bool

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)
