NAME

Config::Netrc - module for parsing of Netrc configuration files.

SYNOPSIS

use Config::Netrc;
say Config::Netrc::parse-file('my-example.netrc');

DESCRIPTION

There are basically two main functions: parse and parse-file. First function takes a string of netrc-file content and returns to you a hash with some signature or Nil value if parser failed.

This hash contains of two arrays: comments and entries. In the section comments you will get all comment strings(without leading #) and in the entries section you get array of hashes with this structure:

machine  => {value => val, comment => my-comment},
login    => {value => val, comment => my-comment},
password => {value => val, comment => my-comment}

Of course, login or password lines are optional and comment entry for lines like following:

machine val # my-comment

is also optional.

You will be able to use this hash to determine state of user's Netrc file state.

TODO

  • Detection of user's config file at his home directory
