CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode - View the source of the running application

CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode(3pm)

NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode - View the source of the running application

SYNOPSIS

In your CGI::Application based class
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode;
Then you can view your module's source (or pod) as it's running by changing the url
    ?rm=view_code
    ?rm=view_code#215
    ?rm=view_code&pod=0&line_no=0
    ?rm=view_code&module=CGI-Application
    ?rm=view_pod
    ?rm=view_pod&module=CGI-Application

INTERFACE

This plugin works by adding extra run modes (named "view_code" and " view_pod ") to the application. By calling this run mode you can see the source or POD of the running module (by default) or you can specify which module you would like to view (see SECURITY).

view_code

This extra run mode will accept the following arguments in the query string:
module
The name of the module to view. By default it is the module currently being run. Also, since colons (':') aren't simply typed into URL's, you can just substitute '-' for '::'.
 
    ?rm=view_code?module=My-Base-Class
    
highlight
Boolean indicates whether syntax highlighting (using Syntax::Highlight::Perl::Improved) is "on" or "off". By default it is "on".
line_no
Boolean indicates whether the viewing of line numbers is "on" or "off". By default it is "on". It "line_no" is on, you can also specify which line number you want to see by adding an anchor to the link:
 
    ?rm=view_code#215
    
 
This will take you immediately to line 215 of the current application module.
pod
Boolean indicates whether POD is seen or not. By default it is seen>.

view_pod

This extra run mode will accept the following arguments in the query string:
module
The name of the module to view. By default it is the module currently being run. Also, since colons (':') aren't simply typed into URL's, you can just substitute '-' for '::'.
 
    ?rm=view_pod?module=My-Base-Class
    

AS A POPUP WINDOW

This plugin can be used in conjunction with CGI::Application::Plugin::DevPopup. If we detect that CGI::Application::Plugin::DevPopup is running and turned on, we will create a sub-report that includes the highlighted source code.
So you can simply do the following:
    BEGIN { $ENV{CAP_DEVPOPUP_EXEC} = 1; } # turn it on for real
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::DevPopup;
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode;
Befault, this report will be the same thing produced by "view_code". If you want this report to include the "view_pod" report, simply set the the $ENV{CAP_VIEWCODE_POPUP_POD} to true. You can also turn off the "view_code" report but setting $ENV{CAP_VIEWCODE_POPUP_CODE} to false.
    # have the POD report, but not the code in the dev popup window
    BEGIN { 
        $ENV{CAP_DEVPOPUP_EXEC} = 1;       # turn it on for real
        $ENV{CAP_VIEWCODE_POPUP_POD} = 1;  # turn on POD report
        $ENV{CAP_VIEWCODE_POPUP_CODE} = 0; # turn off code report
    }
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::DevPopup;
    use CGI::Application::Plugin::ViewCode;

SECURITY

This plugin is designed to be used for development only. Please do not use it in a production system as it will allow anyone to see the source code for any loaded module. Consider yourself warned.
