NAME

Perl::Metrics::Simple - Count packages, subs, lines, etc. of many files.

SYNOPSIS

  use Perl::Metrics::Simple;
  my $analyzer = Perl::Metrics::Simple->new;
  my $analysis = $analyzer->analyze_files(@paths, @refs_to_file_contents);
  $file_count    = $analysis->file_count;
  $package_count = $analysis->package_count;
  $sub_count     = $analysis->sub_count;
  $lines         = $analysis->lines;
  $main_stats    = $analysis->main_stats;
  $file_stats    = $analysis->file_stats;

VERSION

This is VERSION 0.12

DESCRIPTION

Perl::Metrics::Simple provides just enough methods to run static analysis of one or many Perl files and obtain a few metrics: packages, subroutines, lines of code, and an approximation of cyclomatic (mccabe) complexity for the subroutines and the "main" portion of the code.

Perl::Metrics::Simple is far simpler than Perl::Metrics.

Installs a script called countperl.

USAGE

See the countperl script (included with this distribution) for a simple example of usage.

CLASS METHODS

new

Takes no arguments and returns a new Perl::Metrics::Simple object.

is_perl_file

Takes a path and returns true if the target is a Perl file.

OBJECT METHODS

analyze_files( @paths, @refs_to_file_contents )

Takes an array of files and or directory paths, and/or SCALAR refs to file contents and returns an Perl::Metrics::Simple::Analysis object.

find_files( @directories_and_files )

Uses list_perl_files to find all the readable Perl files and returns a reference to a (possibly empty) list of paths.

list_perl_files

Takes a list of one or more paths and returns an alphabetically sorted list of only the perl files. Uses is_perl_file so may throw an exception if a file is unreadable.

is_perl_file($path)

Takes a path to a file and returns true if the file appears to be a Perl file, otherwise returns false.

If the file name does not match any of @Perl::Metrics::Simple::PERL_FILE_SUFFIXES then the file is opened for reading and the first line examined for a a Perl 'shebang' line. An exception is thrown if the file cannot be opened in this case.

should_be_skipped($path)

Returns true if the path should be skipped when looking for Perl files. Currently skips .svn, CVS, and _darcs directories.
