NAME
Devel::Platform::Info - Unified framework for obtaining common platform
metadata
SYNOPSIS
use Devel::Platform::Info;
my $info = Devel::Platform::Info->new();
my $data = $info->get_info();
DESCRIPTION
This module is a wrapper to the drivers which can determine platform
metadata regarding the currently running operating system.
The intention of this distribution is to provide key identifying compo-
nents regarding the platform currently being used, for the CPAN Testers
test reports. Currently the reports do not often contain enough infor-
mation to help authors understand specific failures, where the platform
may be a factor.
However, it is hoped that this distribution will find more uses far
beyond the usage for CPAN Testers.
INTERFACE
The Constructor
* new
Simply constructs the object.
Methods
* get_info
Returns a hash reference to the platform metadata.
Returns at least the following keys:
source
archname
osname
osvers
oslabel
is32bit
is64bit
osflag
Note that the 'source' key returns the commands and output used to
obtain the metadata for possible future use.
Further keys may be available to provide additional information if
applicable to the specific operating system.

data:
