Augeas is a library that focuses on the most basic problem in handling Linux configurations programmatically: editing actual configuration files in a controlled manner.
To that end, Augeas exposes a tree of all configuration settings (well, all the ones it knows about) and a simple local API for manipulating the tree. Augeas then modifies underlying configuration files according to the changes that have been made to the tree; it does as little modeling of configurations as possible, and focuses exclusively on transforming the tree-oriented syntax of its public API to the myriad syntaxes of individual configuration files.
This module provides an object oriented Perl interface for Augeas configuration edition library with a more "perlish" API than Augeas C counterpart.
See Augeas project home page for more informations:
To install this module type the following:
perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install
This module requires these other modules and libraries:
- augeas libraries and development files (augeas.h)
- Test::Pod to test document generation
