NAME

Module::Depends - identify the dependencies of a distribution

SYNOPSIS

 use YAML;
 use Module::Depends;
 my $deps = Module::Depends->new->dist_dir( '.' )->find_modules;
 print "Our dependencies:\n", Dump $deps->requires;

DESCRIPTION

Module::Depends extracts module dependencies from an unpacked distribution tree.

Module::Depends only evaluates the META.yml shipped with a distribution. This won't be effective until all distributions ship META.yml files, so we suggest you take your life in your hands and look at Module::Depends::Intrusive.

METHODS

new

simple constructor

dist_dir

Path where the distribution has been extracted to.

find_modules

scan the dist_dir to populate libs, requires, and build_requires

libs

an array reference of lib lines

requires

A reference to a hash enumerating the prerequisite modules for this distribution.

configure_requires

A reference to a hash enumerating the prerequisite modules to configure this distribution.

build_requires

A reference to a hash enumerating the modules needed to build the distribution.

error

A reason, if any, for failing to get dependencies.
