TAP::Parser::SourceHandler - Base class for different TAP source handlers

=head1 VERSION

Version 3.42


our $VERSION = '3.42';


  # abstract class - don't use directly!
  # see TAP::Parser::IteratorFactory for general usage

  # must be sub-classed for use
  package MySourceHandler;
  use base 'TAP::Parser::SourceHandler';
  sub can_handle    { return $confidence_level }
  sub make_iterator { return $iterator }

  # see example below for more details


This is an abstract base class for L<TAP::Parser::Source> handlers / handlers.

A C<TAP::Parser::SourceHandler> does whatever is necessary to produce & capture
a stream of TAP from the I<raw> source, and package it up in a
L<TAP::Parser::Iterator> for the parser to consume.

C<SourceHandlers> must implement the I<source detection & handling> interface
used by L<TAP::Parser::IteratorFactory>.  At 2 methods, the interface is pretty
simple: L</can_handle> and L</make_source>.

Unless you're writing a new L<TAP::Parser::SourceHandler>, a plugin, or
subclassing L<TAP::Parser>, you probably won't need to use this module directly.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 Class Methods

=head3 C<can_handle>

I<Abstract method>.

  my $vote = $class->can_handle( $source );

C<$source> is a L<TAP::Parser::Source>.

Returns a number between C<0> & C<1> reflecting how confidently the raw source
can be handled.  For example, C<0> means the source cannot handle it, C<0.5>
means it may be able to, and C<1> means it definitely can.  See
L<TAP::Parser::IteratorFactory/detect_source> for details on how this is used.


sub can_handle {
    my ( $class, $args ) = @_;
        "Abstract method 'can_handle' not implemented for $class!");

=head3 C<make_iterator>

I<Abstract method>.

  my $iterator = $class->make_iterator( $source );

C<$source> is a L<TAP::Parser::Source>.

Returns a new L<TAP::Parser::Iterator> object for use by the L<TAP::Parser>.
C<croak>s on error.


sub make_iterator {
    my ( $class, $args ) = @_;
        "Abstract method 'make_iterator' not implemented for $class!");



Please see L<TAP::Parser/SUBCLASSING> for a subclassing overview, and any
of the subclasses that ship with this module as an example.  What follows is
a quick overview.

Start by familiarizing yourself with L<TAP::Parser::Source> and
L<TAP::Parser::IteratorFactory>.  L<TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::RawTAP> is
the easiest sub-class to use as an example.

It's important to point out that if you want your subclass to be automatically
used by L<TAP::Parser> you'll have to and make sure it gets loaded somehow.
If you're using L<prove> you can write an L<App::Prove> plugin.  If you're
using L<TAP::Parser> or L<TAP::Harness> directly (e.g. through a custom script,
L<ExtUtils::MakeMaker>, or L<Module::Build>) you can use the C<config> option
which will cause L<TAP::Parser::IteratorFactory/load_sources> to load your

Don't forget to register your class with
