File::Find::Rule::Perl − Common rules for searching for Perl things
use File::Find::Rule::Perl ();
# Find all Perl files smaller than 10k
my @files = File::Find::Rule−>perl_file
# Locate all the modules that PAUSE will index
my @mod = File::Find::Rule−>no_index
I write a lot of things that muck with Perl files. And it always annoyed me that finding "perl files" requires a moderately complex File::Find::Rule pattern.
File::Find::Rule::Perl provides methods for finding various types Perl-related files, or replicating search queries run on a distribution in various parts of the CPAN ecosystem.
The "perl_module" rule locates perl modules. That is, files that are named "*.pm".
This rule is equivalent to "−>"file−>name( ’*.pm’ )> and is included primarily for completeness.
The "perl_test" rule locates perl test scripts. That is, files that are named "*.t".
This rule is equivalent to "−>"file−>name( ’*.t’ )> and is included primarily for completeness.
The "perl_installer" rule locates perl distribution installers. That is, it locates "Makefile.PL" and "Build.PL" files.
The "perl_script" rule locates perl scripts.
This is any file that ends in .pl, or any files without extensions that have a perl "hash-bang" line.
The "perl_file" rule locates all files containing Perl code.
This includes all the files matching the above "perl_module", "perl_test", "perl_installer" and "perl_script" rules.
# Provide the rules directly
directory => [ 'inc', 't', 'examples' ],
file => [ 'Foo.pm', 'lib/Foo.pm' ],
# Provide a META.yml to use
$rule−>no_index( 'META.yml' );
# Provide a dist root directory to look for a META.yml in
$rule−>no_index( 'My−Distribution' );
# Automatically pick up a META.yml from the target directory
$rule−>no_index−>in( 'My−Distribution' );
The "no_index" method applies a set of rules as per the no_index section in a "META.yml" file.
Bugs should always be submitted via the CPAN bug tracker
