VERSION

This document describes version 0.015 of Perinci::CmdLine::POD (from Perl distribution Perinci-CmdLine-POD), released on 2017-08-12.

SYNOPSIS

Please see the included CLI script gen-pod-for-pericmd-script.

FUNCTIONS

gen_pod_for_pericmd_script

Usage:

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

Generate POD for Perinci::CmdLine-based CLI script.

This utility can accept either a path to a Perinci::CmdLine-based CLI script, upon which the arguments to Perinci::CmdLine constructor will be extracted using a script dumper (Perinci::CmdLine::Dump), or a set of arguments to specify Perinci::CmdLine constructor arguments directly (e.g. url, summary, subcommands, etc).

This function is not exported by default, but exportable.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • common_opts => hash

    Set `common_opts` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • completer_script => str

    Script name for shell completion.

    A special value of :self means this script can complete itself.

    Without specifying this option, the COMPLETION POD section will not be generated.

  • config_dirs => array[dirname]

    Set `config_dirs` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • config_filename => str|array[str]|array[hash]

    Set `config_filename` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • default_subcommand => str

    Set `default_subcommand` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • env_name => str

    Set `env_name` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • gen_subcommand => str

    Only generate POD for this subcommand.

    See --gen-subcommands.

  • gen_subcommands => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to generate POD for subcommands.

    If you want to generate separate POD/manpage for each subcommand, you can use this option for the main CLI POD, then generate each subcommand's POD with the --gen-subcommand=SUBCOMMAND_NAME option.

  • libs => array[dirname]

    Extra libraries to pass to perl via -I.

  • per_arg_json => bool (default: 1)

    Set `per_arg_json` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • per_arg_yaml => bool (default: 1)

    Set `per_arg_yaml` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • program_name => str

    Set `program_name` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • read_config => bool (default: 1)

    Set `read_config` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • read_env => bool (default: 1)

    Set `read_env` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • script => filename

    Path to script.

  • subcommands => hash

    Set `subcommands` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • summary => str

    Set `summary` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base.

  • url => str

    Set `url` attribute, see Perinci::CmdLine::Base for more details.

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)
