NAME

Dist::Data - API to access the data of a Perl distribution file or directory

VERSION

version 0.005

SYNOPSIS

  use Dist::Data;

  my $dist = Dist::Data->new('My-Sample-Distribution-0.003.tar.gz');

  # Extract files into this directory, if it not already contains a distribution
  my $otherdist = Dist::Data->new({
    dir => '/storage/extracted-dists/My-Sample-Distribution-0.003',
    filename => 'My-Sample-Distribution-0.003.tar.gz',
  });

  my $otherdist_via_dir = Dist::Data->new({
    dir => '/storage/extracted-dists/My-Sample-Distribution-0.003',
  });

  my %files = %{$dist->files};

  my $filename_of_distini = $dist->file('dist.ini');

  # gives back CPAN::Meta if the dist has one
  my $cpan_meta = $dist->cpan_meta;
  # alternative $dist->cm;

  my $version = $dist->version; # handled by CPAN::Meta object
  my $name = $dist->name;       # also

  my @authors = $dist->authors;

  my %packages = %{$dist->packages};             # via Dist::Metadata
  my %packages = %{$dist->namespaces};           # via Module::Extract::Namespaces
  my %documentations = %{$dist->documentations}; # only .pod inside of lib/ (so far)
  my %scripts = %{$dist->scripts};               # all files in bin/ and script/

DESCRIPTION

This distribution is used to get all information from a CPAN distribution or an extracted CPAN distribution. It tries to combine the power of other modules. Longtime it should be possible to define alternative behaviour (to be more like search.cpan.org or be like metacpan.org or whatever other system that parses CPAN Distributions).
