Tk::PerlMethodList - query the Symbol-table for methods (subroutines) defined in a class (package) and its parents.


require Tk::PerlMethodList;

my $instance = $main_window->PerlMethodList();


Tk::PerlMethodList is a Tk::Toplevel-derived widget.

The window contains entry fields for a classname and a regex. The list below displays the subroutine-names in the package(s) of the given classname and its parent classes. The list displays the sub-names present in the the symbol-table. In case of imported subs, the last field of a row contains the name of the aliased sub as reported by DevelPeek::CvGV. Tk::PerlMethodList will not show subs which can be - but have not yet been autoloaded. It will show declared subs though. The 'Filter' entry takes a regex to filter the returned List of sub/methodnames.

If the file containing a subroutine definition can be found in %INC, a green mark will be displayed at the beginning of the line. The sourcecode will be displayed by clicking on the subs list-entry.

Method list and source window have Control-plus and Control-minus bindings to change fontsize.


Tk::PerlMethodList supports the following methods:


Set the classname-entry to 'A::Class::Name'.


Set the filter-entry to 'a_regex'.


Build the list for classname and filter present in the entry-fields.


Tk::PerlMethodList supports the following options:


$instance->configure(-classname =>'A::Class::Name') Same as classname('A::Class::Name').


$instance->configure(-filter =>'a_regex') Same as filter('a_regex').
