Module::Functions(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Module::Functions(3)
 

Module::Functions - Get function list from package.

    package My::Class;
    use parent qw/Exporter/;
    use Module::Functions;
    our @EXPORT = get_public_functions();

Module::Functions is a library to get a public functions list from package. It is useful to create a exportable function list.

Get a public function list from the package.
If you don't pass the $package parameter, the function use caller(0) as a source package.
This function does not get a function, that imported from other package.
For example:
    package Foo;
    use File::Spec::Functions qw/catfile/;
    sub foo { }
In this case, return value of "get_public_functions('Foo')" does not contain 'catfile'. Return value is "('foo')".
RULES
This "get_public_functions" removes some function names.
Rules are here:
BEGIN, UNITCHECK, CHECK, INIT, and END are hidden.
'import' method is hidden
function name prefixed by '_' is hidden.

This function get ALL functions. ALL means functions that were imported from other packages. And included specially named functions(BEGIN , UNITCHECK , CHECK , INIT and END). Of course, included also private functions( ex. _foo ).

Exporter::Auto have same feature of this module, but it stands on very tricky thing.
Class::Inspector finds the function list. But it does not check the function defined at here or imported from other package.
