CPAN::PackageDetails::Entry - Handle a single record of 02packages.details.txt.gz
Used internally by CPAN::PackageDetails
An entry is a single line from 02packages.details.txt that maps a package name to a source. It's a whitespace-separated list that has the values for the column identified in the "columns" field in the header.
By default, there are three columns: package name, version, and path.
Inside a CPAN::PackageDetails object, the actual work and manipulation of the entries are handled by delegate classes specified in entries_class and entry_class). At the moment these are immutable, so you'd have to subclass this module to change them.
Create a new entry
Access values of the entry.
Formats the Entry as text. It joins with whitespace the values for the column names you pass it. You get the newline automatically.
Any values that are not defined (or the empty string) turn into the literal string 'undef' to preserve the columns in the output.
