Devel::Platform::Info - Unified framework for obtaining common platform metadata
my $info = Devel::Platform::Info->new();
my $data = $info->get_info();
This module is a wrapper to the drivers which can determine platform metadata regarding the currently running operating system.
The intention of this distribution is to provide key identifying components regarding the platform currently being used, for the CPAN Testers test reports. Currently the reports do not often contain enough information to help authors understand specific failures, where the platform may be a factor.
However, it is hoped that this distribution will find more uses far beyond the usage for CPAN Testers.
Simply constructs the object.
Returns a hash reference to the platform metadata.
Returns at least the following keys:
Note that the 'source' key returns the commands and output used to obtain the metadata for possible future use.
Further keys may be available to provide additional information if applicable to the specific operating system.
The following links were used to understand how to retrieve the metadata:
