NAME

CPANPLUS::Internals - CPANPLUS internals

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    my $internals   = CPANPLUS::Internals->_init( _conf => $conf );
    my $backend     = CPANPLUS::Internals->_retrieve_id( $ID );



DESCRIPTION

This module is the guts of CPANPLUS — it inherits from all other modules in the CPANPLUS::Internals::* namespace, thus defying normal rules of OO programming — but if you’re reading this, you already know what’s going on ;)

Please read the CPANPLUS::Backend documentation for the normal API.

ACCESSORS

_conf Get/set the configure object
_id Get/set the id

METHODS

CW$internals = CPANPLUS::Internals->_init( _conf => CONFIG_OBJ )

_init creates a new CPANPLUS::Internals object.

You have to pass it a valid CPANPLUS::Configure object.

Returns the object on success, or dies on failure.

CW$bool = CW$internals->_flush( list => \@caches )

Flushes the designated caches from the CPANPLUS object.

Returns true on success, false if one or more caches could not be be flushed.

CW$bool = CW$internals->_register_callback( name => CALLBACK_NAME, code => CODEREF );

Registers a callback for later use by the internal libraries.

Here is a list of the currently used callbacks:
install_prerequisite Is called when the user wants to be asked about what to do with prerequisites. Should return a boolean indicating true to install the prerequisite and false to skip it.
send_test_report Is called when the user should be prompted if he wishes to send the test report. Should return a boolean indicating true to send the test report and false to skip it.
munge_test_report Is called when the test report message has been composed, giving the user a chance to programmatically alter it. Should return the (munged) message to be sent.
edit_test_report Is called when the user should be prompted to edit test reports about to be sent out by Test::Reporter. Should return a boolean indicating true to edit the test report in an editor and false to skip it.
proceed_on_test_failure Is called when ’make test’ or ’Build test’ fails. Should return a boolean indicating whether the install should continue even if the test failed.
munge_dist_metafile Is called when the CPANPLUS::Dist::* metafile is created, like control for CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb, giving the user a chance to programmatically alter it. Should return the (munged) text to be written to the metafile.

CW$bool = CW$internals->_add_to_includepath( directories => \@dirs )

Adds a list of directories to the include path. This means they get added to @INC as well as $ENV{PERL5LIB}.

Returns true on success, false on failure.

CW$bool = CW$internals->_add_to_path( directories => \@dirs )

Adds a list of directories to the PATH, but only if they actually contain anything.

Returns true on success, false on failure.

CW$id = CPANPLUS::Internals->_last_id

Return the id of the last object stored.

CW$id = CPANPLUS::Internals->_store_id( CW$internals )

Store this object; return its id.

CW$obj = CPANPLUS::Internals->_retrieve_id( CW$ID )

Retrieve an object based on its ID — return false on error.

CPANPLUS::Internals->_remove_id( CW$ID )

Remove the object marked by $ID from storage.

CW@objs = CPANPLUS::Internals->_return_all_objects

Return all stored objects.
