VERSION

This document describes version 0.004009 of Module::List::More (from Perl distribution Module-List-More), released on 2020-09-22.

SYNOPSIS

Use like you would Module::List, e.g.:

 use Module::List::More qw(list_modules);

 $id_modules = list_modules("Data::ID::", { list_modules=>1, return_path=>1, return_library_path=>1, return_version=>1});
 # Sample result:
 # {
 #   'Data::ID::One' => {
 #     module_path=>"/home/s1/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.30.2/lib/site_perl/5.30.2/Data/ID/One.pm",
 #     library_path=>"/home/s1/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.30.2/lib/site_perl/5.30.2",
 #     module_version=>'0.01',
 #   },
 #   'Data::ID::Two' => {
 #     module_path=>"/home/s1/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.30.2/lib/site_perl/5.30.2/Data/ID/Two.pm",
 #     library_path=>"/home/s1/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.30.2/lib/site_perl/5.30.2",
 #     module_version=>'0.02',
 #   },
 # }

 {
   local @INC = ('lib', @INC);
   $id_modules = list_modules("Data::ID::", { list_modules=>1, all=>1, return_path=>1, return_version=>1});
 }
 # Sample result:
 # {
 #   'Data::ID::One' => {
 #     module_path=>["lib/Data/ID/One.pm", "/home/s1/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.30.2/lib/site_perl/5.30.2/Data/ID/One.pm"],
 #     module_version=>[undef, '0.01'],
 #   },
 #   'Data::ID::Two' => {
 #     module_path=>["/home/s1/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.30.2/lib/site_perl/5.30.2/Data/ID/Two.pm"],
 #     module_version=>['0.02'],
 #   },
 # }

DESCRIPTION

This module is like Module::List, except for the following differences:

  • lower startup overhead (with some caveats)

    It avoids using Exporter and implements its own import(). It avoids IO::Dir, Carp, File::Spec, with the goal of saving a few milliseconds (a casual test on my PC results in 11ms vs 39ms).

    Path separator is hard-coded as /.

  • Recognize all option

    If set to true and return_path is also set to true, will return all found paths for each module instead of just the first found one. The values of result will be an arrayref containing all found paths.

  • Recognize return_library_path option

    If set to true, will return a library_path result key, which is the associated @INC entry that produces the result.

  • Recognize return_version option

    If set to true, will parse module source file with ExtUtils::MakeMaker's parse_version and return the result in module_version key. If version cannot be detected, a proper undefined value undef (instead of the string 'undef') is returned.

  • Recognize wildcard option

    This boolean option can be set to true to recognize wildcard pattern in prefix. Wildcard patterns such as jokers (?, *, **), classes ([a-z]), as well as braces ({One,Two}) are supported. ** implies recursive listing.

    Examples:

     list_modules("Module::P*", {wildcard=>1, list_modules=>1});

    results in something like:

     {
         "Module::Patch"             => undef,
         "Module::Path"              => undef,
         "Module::Pluggable"         => undef,
     }

    while:

     list_modules("Module::P**", {wildcard=>1, list_modules=>1});

    results in something like:

     {
         "Module::Patch"             => undef,
         "Module::Path"              => undef,
         "Module::Path::More"        => undef,
         "Module::Pluggable"         => undef,
         "Module::Pluggable::Object" => undef,
     }

    while:

     list_modules("Module::**le", {wildcard=>1, list_modules=>1});

    results in something like:

     {
         "Module::Depakable"                => undef,
         "Module::Install::Admin::Bundle"   => undef,
         "Module::Install::Admin::Makefile" => undef,
         "Module::Install::Bundle"          => undef,
         "Module::Install::Makefile"        => undef,
         "Module::Pluggable"                => undef,
     }

HISTORY

This module began its life as PERLANCAR::Module::List, my personal experimental fork of Module::List. The experiment has also produced other forks like Module::List::Tiny, Module::List::Wildcard.
