NAME

Glib::FindMinVersion - Find minimum version of GLib needed to compile C source

SYNOPSIS

    use Glib::FindMinVersion;

    print Glib::FindMinVersion::with('g_get_num_processors'); # 2.36
    print scalar Glib::FindMinVersion::for_file('source.c'); # 2.18
    my %symbols = Glib::FindMinVersion::for_file('source.c' => 2.10);
    # (
    #   2.18 => [qw[g_set_error_literal]],
    #   2.12 => [qw[g_ascii_strtoll g_base64_decode]],
    # )
    

IMPLEMENTATION

Symbol use is detected quite crudely with / \s* (?<symbol>\w+) \s* \( /x. Symbols introduced prior to 2.0 are labelled as 2.0.

METHODS AND ARGUMENTS

with(@symbols)

Returns minimum GLib version which exports all @symbols.

for_source($source [, $version])

Here, [] denotes an optional argument. In list context, returns a listing of all found glib symbols grouped by version. If $version is given, the list is limited to symbols newer than $version. $version is a string of the form /2\.\d\d?/.

In scalar context, returns the maximum version in the list, which is the minimum version required to use all the symbols.

for_file($filename [, $version])

Helper function that reads in $filename and passes it to for_source.

NAMING

Official casing is GLib, but there's a Glib module already on CPAN, so this follows suit. This and the Glib module are unrelated though.
