NAME

Check::GlobalPhase - Check::GlobalPhase fast XS checker for Perl GlobalPhase

VERSION

version 0.001

SYNOPSIS

 #!perl
 
 use strict;
 use warnings;
 
 use Test::More;    # just used for illustration purpose
 
 use Check::GlobalPhase;
 
 INIT {
 
     # instead of using a string comparison
     ok ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'INIT';
 
     # you can use the boolean helpers
     #   to check if you are in one of the current Perl Phase
     ok Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_init();
 
     # other helpers
     ok !Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_construct();
     ok !Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_start();
     ok !Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_check();
     ok !Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_run();
     ok !Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_end();
     ok !Check::GlobalPhase::in_global_phase_destruct();
 }
 
 # if you need to check more than one phase at the same time
 #   you can use bitmask like this
 ok Check::GlobalPhase::current_phase()
     & ( Check::GlobalPhase::PERL_PHASE_INIT | Check::GlobalPhase::PERL_PHASE_RUN );
 
 # using one ore more of the available constants
 Check::GlobalPhase::PERL_PHASE_CONSTRUCT;

DESCRIPTION

Check::GlobalPhase provides some fast helpers to check the current Perl Phase. This is avoiding the creation of useless SvPV to perform a string comparison using ${^GLOBAL_PHASE}

View ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} from perlvar for more details.

FUNCTIONS

in_global_phase_construct()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'CONSTRUCT'

in_global_phase_start()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'START'

in_global_phase_check()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'CHECK'

in_global_phase_init()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'INIT'

in_global_phase_run()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'RUN'

in_global_phase_end()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'END'

in_global_phase_destruct()

Return a boolean value. True if ${^GLOBAL_PHASE} eq 'DESTRUCT'

CONSTANTS

You can use this constant to perform some bitmask check with the current Perl_Phase returned from current_phase. (view synopsis)
