App::lcpan::Cmd::deps - List dependencies of distributions
This document describes version 1.062 of App::lcpan::Cmd::deps (from Perl distribution App-lcpan), released on 2020-08-13.
handle_cmd(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]
List dependencies of distributions.
List what modules Module-List requires:
handle_cmd( dists => ["Module-List"]);
List modules Module-List requires (module name will be converted to distro name):
handle_cmd( dists => ["Module::List"]);
List non-core modules Module-List requires:
handle_cmd( dists => ["Module-List"], include_core => 0);
List dependencies of a specific distribution release:
handle_cmd( dists => ["Module-List\@0.004"]);
By default only runtime requires are displayed. To see prereqs for other phases (e.g. configure, or build, or ALL) or for other relationships (e.g. recommends, or ALL), use the
Note that dependencies information are taken from
META.yml files. Not all releases (especially older ones) contain them. lcpan (like MetaCPAN) does not extract information from
Build.PL because that requires running (untrusted) code.
Also, some releases specify dynamic config, so there might actually be more dependencies.
This function is not exported.
Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):
added_or_updated_since => date
Include only records that are added/updated since a certain date.
added_or_updated_since_last_index_update => true
Include only records that are added/updated since the last index update.
added_or_updated_since_last_n_index_updates => posint
Include only records that are added/updated since the last N index updates.
added_since => date
Include only records that are added since a certain date.
added_since_last_index_update => true
Include only records that are added since the last index update.
added_since_last_n_index_updates => posint
Include only records that are added since the last N index updates.
cpan => dirname
Location of your local CPAN mirror, e.g. /path/to/cpan.
dists* => array[perl::distname_with_optional_ver]
Distribution names (with optional version suffix, e.g. Foo-Bar@1.23).
dont_uniquify => bool
Allow showing multiple modules for different dists.
flatten => bool
Instead of showing tree-like information, flatten it.
When recursing, the default is to show the final result in a tree-like table, i.e. indented according to levels, e.g.:
% lcpan deps -R MyModule | module | author | version | |-------------------|---------|---------| | Foo | AUTHOR1 | 0.01 | | Bar | AUTHOR2 | 0.23 | | Baz | AUTHOR3 | 1.15 | | Qux | AUTHOR2 | 0 |
To be brief, if
Quxhappens to also depends on
Bar, it will not be shown in the result. Thus we don't know the actual
Barversion that is needed by the dependency tree of
MyModule. For example, if
Quxhappens to depends on
Barversion 0.45 then
To list all the direct and indirect dependencies on a single flat list, with versions already resolved to the largest version required, use the
% lcpan deps -R --flatten MyModule | module | author | version | |-------------------|---------|---------| | Foo | AUTHOR1 | 0.01 | | Bar | AUTHOR2 | 0.45 | | Baz | AUTHOR3 | 1.15 | | Qux | AUTHOR2 | 0 |
Bar's required version is already 0.45 in the above example.
include_core => bool (default: 1)
Include core modules.
include_indexed => bool (default: 1)
Include modules that are indexed (listed in 02packages.details.txt.gz).
include_noncore => bool (default: 1)
Include non-core modules.
include_unindexed => bool (default: 1)
Include modules that are not indexed (not listed in 02packages.details.txt.gz).
index_name => filename (default: "index.db")
Filename of index.
index_nameis a filename without any path, e.g.
index.dbthen index will be located in the top-level of
index_namecontains a path, e.g.
/home/ujang/lcpan.dbthen the index will be located solely using the
level => int (default: 1)
Recurse for a number of levels (-1 means unlimited).
perl_version => str (default: "v5.30.0")
Set base Perl version for determining core modules.
phase => str (default: "runtime")
rel => str (default: "requires")
updated_since => date
Include only records that are updated since certain date.
updated_since_last_index_update => true
Include only records that are updated since the last index update.
updated_since_last_n_index_updates => posint
Include only records that are updated since the last N index updates.
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_xs_or_pp => bool
Check each dependency as XS/PP.
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)
