NAME

Devel::Deanonymize - A small tool to make anonymous sub visible

DESCRIPTION

When collecting Coverage statistics with Devel::Cover a construct like below appear to be invisible and is simply ignored by the statistic:

    my $sub = sub {
        print "hello";
    }

This script aims to solve this problem by wrapping each file in a sub and thus making these subs visible. Code is based on https://github.com/pjcj/Devel--Cover/issues/51#issuecomment-17222928

SYNOPSIS

    # Perl scripts
    perl -MDevel::Cover=-ignore,^t/,Deanonymize -MDevel::Deanonymize=<inculde_pattern> your_script.pl

    # Perl tests
    HARNESS_PERL_SWITCHES="-MDevel::Cover=-ignore,^t/,Deanonymize -MDevel::Deanonymize=<include_pattern>"  prove t/

DEBUGGING

If your tests suddenly fail for some weird reason, you can set DEANONYMIZE_DEBUG. If this environment variable is set, we print out the filename for every modified file write its contents to filepath/filename_mod.pl.

It is also important to note that the regex which matches the end-marker is not perfect. In general it can be summarized as follows:

We start at the end of a file and search for the first occurrence of either __END__, __DATA__ or 1;. To improve robustness, these markers must occur alone on their respective line. A special case is 1 without semicolon: We only consider this case if its the very last character of a file.

Files with no endmarkers at all are dangerous to use in conjunction with this module...
