NAME

       CPAN::Distroprefs -- read and match distroprefs


SYNOPSIS

           use CPAN::Distroprefs;

           my %info = (... distribution/environment info ...);

           my $finder = CPAN::Distroprefs->find($prefs_dir, \%ext_map);

           while (my $result = $finder->next) {

               die $result->as_string if $result->is_fatal;

               warn($result->as_string), next if $result->is_warning;

               for my $pref (@{ $result->prefs }) {
                   if ($pref->matches(\%info)) {
                       return $pref;
                   }
               }
           }


DESCRIPTION

       This module encapsulates reading Distroprefs and matching them against
       CPAN distributions.


INTERFACE

           my $finder = CPAN::Distroprefs->find($dir, \%ext_map);

           while (my $result = $finder->next) { ... }

       Build an iterator which finds distroprefs files in the tree below the
       given directory. Within the tree directories matching "m/^[._]/" are
       pruned.

       %ext_map is a hashref whose keys are file extensions and whose values
       are modules used to load matching files:

           {
               'yml' => 'YAML::Syck',
               'dd'  => 'Data::Dumper',
               ...
           }

       Each time "$finder->next" is called, the iterator returns one of two
       possible values:

       o   a CPAN::Distroprefs::Result object

       o   "undef", indicating that no prefs files remain to be found


RESULTS

       "find()" returns CPAN::Distroprefs::Result objects to indicate success
       or failure when reading a prefs file.

   Common
       All results share some common attributes:

       type

       "success", "warning", or "fatal"

       file

       the file from which these prefs were read, or to which this error
       refers (relative filename)

       ext

       the file's extension, which determines how to load it

       dir

       the directory the file was read from

       abs

       the absolute path to the file

   Errors
       Error results (warning and fatal) contain:

       msg

       the error message (usually either $! or a YAML error)

   Successes
       Success results contain:

       prefs

       an arrayref of CPAN::Distroprefs::Pref objects


PREFS

       CPAN::Distroprefs::Pref objects represent individual distroprefs
       documents.  They are constructed automatically as part of "success"
       results from "find()".

       data

       the pref information as a hashref, suitable for e.g. passing to Kwalify

       match_attributes

       returns a list of the valid match attributes (see the Distroprefs
       section in CPAN)

       currently: "env perl perlconfig distribution module"

       has_any_match

       true if this pref has a 'match' attribute at all

       has_valid_subkeys

       true if this pref has a 'match' attribute and at least one valid match
       attribute

       matches

         if ($pref->matches(\%arg)) { ... }

       true if this pref matches the passed-in hashref, which must have a
       value for each of the "match_attributes" (above)
