NAME

CPANPLUS::Dist - base class for plugins

SYNOPSIS

    my $dist = CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE->new(
                                module  => $modobj,
                            );

DESCRIPTION

"CPANPLUS::Dist" is a base class for "CPANPLUS::Dist::MM" and "CPANPLUS::Dist::Build". Developers of other "CPANPLUS::Dist::*" plugins should look at "CPANPLUS::Dist::Base".

ACCESSORS

parent()
Returns the "CPANPLUS::Module" object that parented this object.
status()
Returns the "Object::Accessor" object that keeps the status for this module.

STATUS ACCESSORS

All accessors can be accessed as follows:
$deb->status->ACCESSOR
created()
Boolean indicating whether the dist was created successfully. Explicitly set to 0 when failed, so a value of "undef" may be interpreted as "not yet attempted".
installed()
Boolean indicating whether the dist was installed successfully. Explicitly set to 0 when failed, so a value of "undef" may be interpreted as "not yet attempted".
uninstalled()
Boolean indicating whether the dist was uninstalled successfully. Explicitly set to 0 when failed, so a value of "undef" may be interpreted as "not yet attempted".
dist()
The location of the final distribution. This may be a file or directory, depending on how your distribution plug in of choice works. This will be set upon a successful create.

$dist = CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE->new( module => MODOBJ );

Create a new "CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE" object based on the provided "MODOBJ".
*** DEPRECATED *** The optional argument "format" is used to indicate what type of dist you would like to create (like "CPANPLUS::Dist::MM" or "CPANPLUS::Dist::Build" and so on ).
"CPANPLUS::Dist->new" is exclusively meant as a method to be inherited by "CPANPLUS::Dist::MM|Build".
Returns a "CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE" object on success and false on failure.

@dists = CPANPLUS::Dist->dist_types;

Returns a list of the CPANPLUS::Dist::* classes available

$bool = CPANPLUS::Dist->rescan_dist_types;

Rescans @INC for available dist types. Useful if you've installed new "CPANPLUS::Dist::*" classes and want to make them available to the current process.

$bool = CPANPLUS::Dist->has_dist_type( $type )

Returns true if distribution type $type is loaded/supported.

$bool = $dist->prereq_satisfied( modobj => $modobj, version => $version_spec )

Returns true if this prereq is satisfied. Returns false if it's not. Also issues an error if it seems "unsatisfiable," i.e. if it can't be found on CPAN or the latest CPAN version doesn't satisfy it.

$configure_requires = $dist->find_configure_requires( [file => /path/to/META.yml] )

Reads the configure_requires for this distribution from the META.yml or META.json file in the root directory and returns a hashref with module names and versions required.

$bool = $dist->_resolve_prereqs( ... )

Makes sure prerequisites are resolved
    format          The dist class to use to make the prereqs
                    (ie. CPANPLUS::Dist::MM)
    prereqs         Hash of the prerequisite modules and their versions
    target          What to do with the prereqs.
                        create  => Just build them
                        install => Install them
                        ignore  => Ignore them
    prereq_build    If true, always build the prereqs even if already
                    resolved
    verbose         Be verbose
    force           Force the prereq to be built, even if already resolved
