SYNOPSIS

    use Module::Format::Module;

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from(
        {
            format => 'colon',
            value => 'XML::RSS',
        }
        );

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from(
        {
            format => 'dash',
            value => 'XML-RSS',
        }
        );

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from(
        {
            format => 'unix',
            value => 'XML/RSS.pm',
        }
        );

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from(
        {
            format => 'rpm_dash',
            value => 'perl-XML-RSS',
        }
        );

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from(
        {
            format => 'rpm_colon',
            value => 'perl(XML::RSS)',
        }
        );

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from_guess(
        {
            value => # All of the above...
        }
    );

    # Prints "XML-RSS"
    print $module->format_as('dash'), "\n";

    # Prints "perl(XML::RSS)"
    print $module->format_as('rpm_colon'), "\n";

    # Prints "libxml-rss-perl"
    print $module->format_as('debian'), "\n";

FUNCTIONS

my $module = Module::Format::Module->from_components({components => [@components]})

Constructs a module from @components which are strings that indicate the individual components of the module. For example:

    my $module = Module::Format::Module->from_components(
        {
            components => [qw(XML Grammar Fiction)],
        }
    );

my $module = Module::Format::Module->from({format => $format, value => $string});

Construct a Module::Format::Module object from the given format $format and the string value $string .

Valid formats are:

  • 'colon'

    Separated by a double colon, e.g: XML::RSS, Data::Dumper, Catalyst::Plugin::Model::DBIx::Class, etc.

  • 'dash'

    Separated by a double colon, e.g: XML-RSS, Data-Dumper, Catalyst-Plugin-Model-DBIx-Class, etc.

  • 'unix'

    UNIX path, e.g: XML/RSS.pm, Catalyst/Plugin/Model/DBIx/Class.pm .

    This is commonly displayed in Perl error messages.

  • 'rpm_dash'

    Like dash, only with 'perl-' prefixed: perl-XML-RSS, perl-Data-Dumper.

  • 'rpm_colon'

    Like colon only wrapped inside perl(...) - useful for rpm provides for individual modules. E.g: perl(XML::RSS), perl(Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication) .

  • 'debian'

    Debian package format, such as libxml-rss-perl, libcatalyst-plugin-authentication-perl . Output only.

my $array_ref = $module->get_components_list()

Returns the components list of the module as an array reference. For example for the module One::Two::Three it would be ["One", "Two", "Three"].

$module->format_as($format)

Format the module in the given format. See from() for a list.

my $clone = $module->clone()

Duplicates the object.

my $bool = $module->is_sane();

Returns a boolean depending on if the component of the module do not contain any funny character (only alphanumeric characters and underscore.).

my $module = Module::Format::Module->from_guess({ value => $string});

Initialises a module object from a string while trying to guess its format. It accepts a hash-ref with the following keys: 'value' that points to the string to serve as an input, and an optional 'format_ref' that will give the format that was decided upon.
