NAME

App::PMUtils - Command-line utilities related to Perl modules

VERSION

This document describes version 0.58 of App::PMUtils (from Perl distribution App-PMUtils), released on 2016-04-30.

SYNOPSIS

This distribution provides the following command-line utilities related to Perl modules:

The main purpose of these utilities is tab completion.

FUNCTIONS

pmdir(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

Get directory of locally installed Perl module/prefix.

This is basically a shortcut for:

 % pmpath -Pd MODULE_OR_PREFIX_NAME

Sometimes I forgot that pmpath has a -d option, and often intuitively look for a pmdir command.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • abs => bool

    Absolutify each path.

  • module* => array[str]

  • pm => bool (default: 1)

  • pmc => bool (default: 0)

  • pod => bool (default: 0)

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

pmpath(%args) -> [status, msg, result, meta]

Get path to locally installed Perl module.

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • abs => bool

    Absolutify each path.

  • all => bool

    Return all found files for each module instead of the first one.

  • dir => bool

    Show directory instead of path.

    Also, will return . if not found, so you can conveniently do this on a Unix shell:

     % cd C<pmpath -Pd Moose>

    and it won't change directory if the module doesn't exist.

  • module* => array[str]

  • pm => bool (default: 1)

  • pmc => bool (default: 0)

  • pod => bool (default: 0)

  • prefix => bool (default: 0)

Returns an enveloped result (an array).

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (result) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)

FAQ

What is the purpose of this distribution? Haven't other similar utilities existed?

For example, mpath from Module::Path distribution is similar to pmpath in App::PMUtils, and mversion from Module::Version distribution is similar to pmversion from App::PMUtils distribution, and so on.

True. The main point of these utilities is shell tab completion, to save typing.
