NAME

MyCPAN::App::DPAN::Indexer - Create a D(ark)PAN out of the indexed distributions

SYNOPSIS

        use MyCPAN::Indexer;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements the indexer_class and reporter_class components to allow backpan_indexer.pl to create a CPAN-like directory structure with its associated index files. This application of MyCPAN::Indexer is specifically aimed at creating a 02packages.details file, so it strives to collect a minimum of information.

It runs through the indexing and prints a report at the end of the run.

Indexer class

examine_dist_steps

Returns the list of techniques that examine_dist should use to index distributions. See the documentation in MyCPAN::Indexer::examine_dist_steps.

For DPAN, unpack the dist, ensure you are in the dist directory, the find the modules.

find_modules_techniques

Returns the list of techniques that find_modules should use to look for Perl module files. See the documentation in MyCPAN::Indexer::find_modules.

                return \@techniques;
                }
get_module_info_tasks

Returns the list of techniques that get_module_info should use to extract data from Perl module files. See the documentation in MyCPAN::Indexer::get_module_info.

setup_run_info

Like setup_run_info in MyCPAN::Indexer, but it remembers fewer things. The DarkPAN census really just cares about finding packages, so the details about the run aren't as interesting.

setup_dist_info

Like setup_dist_info in MyCPAN::Indexer, but it remembers fewer things. The test census really just cares about statements in the test files, so the details about the distribution aren't as interesting.
