MyCPAN::App::DPAN::Reporter::AsYAML - Record the indexing results as YAML
Use this in the dpan config by specifying it as the reporter class:
# in dpan.config reporter_class MyCPAN::App::DPAN::Reporter::AsYAML
This module implements the reporter_class components to allow
dpan to create a CPAN-like directory structure with its associated index files. It runs through the indexing, saves the reports as YAML, and prints a report at the end of the run.
Inherited from MyCPAN::App::BackPAN::Indexer
Creates the 02packages.details.txt.gz and CHECKSUMS files once
dpanhas analysed every distribution.
This is the big problem. Since we didn't really parse the source code, we don't really know how to match up packages and VERSIONs. The best we can do right now is assume that a $VERSION we found goes with the packages we found.
Additionally, that package variable my have been in one package, but been the version for another package. For example:
package DBI; $DBI::PurePerl::VERSION = 1.23;
Given information about the module, make a guess about which package is the primary one. This is
NOT YET IMPLEMENTED
- get_package_version( MODULE_INFO, PACKAGE )
Get the $VERSION associated with PACKAGE. You probably want to use
guess_package_namefirst to figure out which package is the primary one that you should index.
NOT YET IMPLEMENTED
- skip_package( PACKAGE )
Returns true if the indexer should ignore PACKAGE.
By default, this skips the Perl special packages specified by the ignore_packages configuration. By default, ignore packages is:
main MY MM DB bytes DynaLoader
To set a different list, configure ignore_packages with a space separated list of packages to ignore:
ignore_packages main Foo Bar::Baz Test
Note that this only ignores those exact packages. You can't configure this with regex or wildcards (yet).
Not yet implemented. Otehr code needs to be refactored and show up here.
If a modules/03modlist.data.gz does not already exist, this creates a placeholder which defines the CPAN::Modulelist package and the method
datain that package. The
datamethod returns an empty hash reference.
Creates the CHECKSUMS file that goes in each author directory in CPAN. This is mostly a wrapper around CPAN::Checksums since that already handles updating an entire tree. We just do a little logging.
