NAME

Dist::Metadata::Struct - Enable Dist::Metadata for a data structure

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.926

SYNOPSIS



  my $dm = Dist::Metadata->new(struct => {
    files => {
      lib/Mod.pm => package Mod; sub something { ... },
      README     => this is a fake dist, useful for testing,
    }
  });



DESCRIPTION

This is a subclass of Dist::Metadata::Dist to enable mocking up a dist from perl data structures.

This is mostly used for testing but might be useful if you already have an in-memory representation of a dist that you’d like to examine.

It’s probably not very useful on it’s own though, and should be used from new in Dist::Metadata.

METHODS

    new



  $dist = Dist::Metadata::Struct->new(files => {
    lib/Mod.pm => package Mod; sub something { ... },
  });



Accepts a files parameter that should be a hash of { name => content, }. Content can be a string, a reference to a string, or an IO object.

    default_file_spec

Unix is the default for consistency/simplicity but file_spec can be overridden in the constructor.

    file_content

Returns the string content for the specified name.

    find_files

Returns the keys of the files hash.
