Dist::Util - Dist-related utilities

VERSION

This document describes version 0.06 of Dist::Util (from Perl distribution Dist-Util), released on 2014-12-26.

SYNOPSIS

 use Dist::Util qw(
     list_dist_modules
     list_dists
     packlist_for
 );

 say packlist_for("Text::ANSITable"); # sample output: /home/steven/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.18.2/lib/site_perl/5.18.2/x86_64-linux/auto/Text/ANSITable/.packlist
 my @mods = list_dist_modules("Text::ANSITable"); # -> ("Text::ANSITable", "Text::ANSITable::BorderStyle::Default", "Text::ANSITable::ColorTheme::Default")

DESCRIPTION

FUNCTIONS

packlist_for($mod) => STR

Find .packlist file for installed module $mod (which can be in the form of Package::SubPkg or Package/SubPkg.pm). Return undef if none is found.

Depending on the content of @INC, the returned path may be absolute or relative.

list_dists() => LIST

Find all .packlist files in @INC and then pick the dist names from the paths, because .packlist files are put in:

 $INC/$Config{archname}/auto/Foo/Bar/.packlist

Caveat: many Linux distributions strip .packlist files.

list_dist_modules($mod) => LIST

Given installed module name $mod (which must be the name of the main module of its distribution), list all the modules in the distribution. This is done by first finding the .packlist file, then look at all the .pm files listed in the packlist.

Will return empty list if fails to get the packlist.
