NAME

Module::CoreList::More - More functions for Module::CoreList

VERSION

This document describes version 0.08 of Module::CoreList::More (from Perl distribution Module-CoreList-More), released on 2016-02-17.

SYNOPSIS

 use Module::CoreList::More;

 # true, this module has always been in core since specified perl release
 Module::CoreList::More->is_still_core("Benchmark", 5.010001);

 # false, since CGI is removed in perl 5.021000
 Module::CoreList::More->is_still_core("CGI");

 # false, never been in core
 Module::CoreList::More->is_still_core("Foo");

 my %modules = list_still_core_modules(5.010001);

DESCRIPTION

This module is my experiment for providing more functionality to (or related to) Module::CoreList. Some ideas include: faster functions, more querying functions, more convenience functions. When I've got something stable and useful to show for, I'll most probably suggest the appropriate additions to Module::CoreList.

Below are random notes:

FUNCTIONS

These functions are not exported. They can be called as function (e.g. Module::CoreList::More::is_still_core($name) or as class method (e.g. Module::CoreList::More->is_still_core($name).

first_release( MODULE )

Like Module::CoreList's version, but faster (see "BENCHMARK").

first_release_by_date( MODULE )

Like Module::CoreList's version, but faster (see "BENCHMARK").

removed_from( MODULE )

Like Module::CoreList's version, but faster (see "BENCHMARK").

removed_from_by_date( MODULE )

Like Module::CoreList's version, but faster (see "BENCHMARK").

is_core( MODULE, [ MODULE_VERSION, [ PERL_VERSION ] ] )

Like Module::CoreList's version, but faster (see "BENCHMARK").

is_still_core( MODULE, [ MODULE_VERSION, [ PERL_VERSION ] ] )

Like is_core, but will also check that from PERL_VERSION up to the latest known version, MODULE has never been removed from core.

Note/idea: could also be implemented by adding a fourth argument MAX_PERL_VERSION to is_core, defaulting to the latest known version.

list_core_modules([ PERL_VERSION ]) => %modules

List modules that are in core at specified perl release.

list_still_core_modules([ PERL_VERSION ]) => %modules

List modules that are (still) in core from specified perl release to the latest. Keys are module names, while values are versions of said modules in specified perl release.
