Run::Parts - Offers functionality of Debian's run-parts tool in Perl
Run::Parts offers functionality of Debian's run-parts(8) tool in Perl.
run-parts runs all the executable files named within constraints described in run-parts(8) and Run::Parts::Perl, found in the given directory. Other files and directories are silently ignored.
Additionally it can just print the names of the all matching files (not limited to executables, but ignores blacklisted files like e.g. backup files), but don't actually run them.
This is useful when functionality or configuration is split over multiple files in one directory. A typical convention is that the directory name ends in ".d". Common examples for such split configuration directories:
Perhaps a little code snippet.
my $rp = Run::Parts->new('directory'); # chooses backend automatically
my $rpp = Run::Parts->new('directory', 'perl'); # pure perl backend
my $rpd = Run::Parts->new('directory', 'debian'); # uses /bin/run-parts
my @file_list = $rp->list;
my @executables_list = $rpp->test;
my $commands_output = $rpd->run;
Run::Parts contains two backend implementations. Run::Parts::Debian actually uses /bin/run-parts and Run::Parts::Perl is a pure Perl implementation of a basic set of run-parts(8)' functionality.
Run::Parts::Debian may or may not work with RedHat's simplified shell-script based reimplementation of Debian's run-parts(8).
By default Run::Parts uses Run::Parts::Debian if /bin/run-parts exists, Run::Parts::Perl otherwise. But you can also choose any of the backends explicitly.
Creates a new Run::Parts object. Takes one parameter, the directory on which run-parts should work.
Returns the run-parts(8) command to run with the given command parameter.
Lists all relevant files in the given directory. Equivalent to "run-parts --list".
Lists all relevant executables in the given directory. Equivalent to "run-parts --test".
Runs all relevant executables in the given directory. Equivalent to "run-parts".
Returns the concatenated contents of all relevant files in the given directory. Equivalent to "cat `run-parts --list`".
