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.
