NAME

Software::LicenseUtils - little useful bits of code for licensey things

METHODS

guess_license_from_pod

  my @guesses = Software::LicenseUtils->guess_license_from_pod($pm_text);

Given text containing POD, like a .pm file, this method will attempt to guess at the license under which the code is available. This method will either a list of Software::License classes (or instances) or false.

Calling this method in scalar context is a fatal error.

guess_license_from_meta_yml

  my @guesses = Software::LicenseUtils->guess_license_from_meta_yml($yaml_str);

Given the content of the META.yml file found in a CPAN distribution, this method makes a guess as to which licenses may apply to the distribution. It will return a list of zero or more Software::License instances or classes.
