Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser - Parse the output from massif just like


version 0.005


use Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser;
my $data;

# so, you could do this:
my $data0 = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->parse_file($some_file);
my $data1 = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->parse($some_fh);

# or you could do this:
my $mp = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->new();
my $data2 = $mp->parse_file($some_file);
my $data3 = $mp->parse($some_fh);



While you can call the other methods as class methods, this is here to make OO folk happier, and to somewhat appease the "dammit these package names are too damned long" people, (like me) too.

my $mp = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->new();


A convenience method, provided because has it, too.

$file_name is a string that is the path to an output file created by running massif.

The output is the same data structure that would be returned from ->parse().


$fh is a readable file handle, or something that can behave like one.

The main method for this package, it reads the output data from massif through the given file handle and returns a perl data structure that mirrors the one output by in python.
