NAME Module::Install::AutoProvidesFromCompilation - Automatically add provides metadata by compiling your dist. SYNOPSIS use inc::Module::Install; name 'Example'; all_from 'lib/Example.pm' auto_provides_from_compilation(); WriteAll; DESCRIPTION Ensures that the META.yml generated in your distribution contains information for every class in your "lib/" directory. This is useful for distributions using MooseX::Declare for example, as the "class" and "role" keywords are not recognised by the PAUSE indexer. This module is an author-side extension, and acts as a no-op for users installing one of your dists. WARNING This module should be considered HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. Please check that the META.yml generated looks sane before sending your distribution to CPAN! HOW IT WORKS B::Hooks::OP::Check::StashChange is used to hook the perl compiler. Every .pm file in your distribution is compiled and when the stash code is being compiled in is changed, the filename being compiled is found by B::Compiling. When all the dependencies for your distributon as installed, this is theoretically a foolproof way of working out the correct set of packages. However, we get notifed of all the packages compiled (including your modules dependencies), which could result in claiming to provide things which are not actually part of your module, and a broken distribution. Just to be crystal clear on that: PLEASE CHECK YOUR GENERATED META.yml, AS DEMONS FLYING OUT OF YOUR NOSE MAY OFFEND. You have been warned. SEE ALSO Module::Install::ProvidesClass - PPI based solution to the same issue. BUGS Almost certainally. There are exactly no tests for this code right now. Patches (or just pointing me at distributions which don't play nicely with this extension) welcome.
