diff-methods - Difference in methods provided between two or more Perl modules.


 diff-methods -help
 diff-methods -version



If this Boolean option is asserted, the output includes methods implemented by all modules.

The default is -noall.


If this Boolean option is asserted, the equivalent of use blib; is done before loading any modules.

The default is -noblib.


This option specifies a regular expression that is matched against each method found. A match means that the method is not included in the output.

This option can be specified more than once. If it is specified multiple times, a match on any one of the regular expressions excludes the method.

If this option is not specified, the default is equivalent to

    -exclude '\A_' -exclude '\A[_[:upper:]0-9\z'

The first -exclude excludes any method whose name begins with an underscore. The second excludes any method with no lower-case characters in its name.


This option displays the documentation for this script. The script then exits.


This option displays the version of this script. The script then exits.


This Perl script takes the names of two or more Perl packages on the command line, and produces as output a list of all methods which are not implemented by all packages.

If no packages are specified, the default is to report on the differences between DateTime and DateTime::Fiction::JRRTolkien::Shire.
