NAME
    Gentoo::Overlay - Tools for working with Gentoo Overlays

VERSION
    version 1.0.4

SYNOPSIS
      my $overlay = Gentoo::Overlay->new( path => '/usr/portage' );

      my $name       = $overlay->name();
      my %categories = $overlay->categories();

      print "Overlay $name 's categories:\n";
      for( sort keys %categories ){
        printf "%30s : %s", $_, $categories{$_};
      }

      # Overlay gentoo 's categories:
      #  .....
      #  dev-lang      : /usr/portage/dev-lang
      #  .....

    There will be more features eventually, this is just a first release.

METHODS
  default_path
    Useful function to easily wrap the class-wide method with a per-object
    sugar.

        $overlay->default_path('profiles');
        ->
        ::Overlay->_default_paths->{'profiles'}->($overlay);
        ->
        $overlay->path->subdir('profiles')


        $overlay->default_path('category','foo');
        ->
        ::Overlay->_default_path('category')->( $overlay, 'foo' );
        ->
        $overlay->path->subdir('foo')

        $overlay->default_path('repo_name');
        ->
        ::Overlay->_default_path('repo_name')->( $overlay );
        ->
        $overlay->_profile_dir->file('repo_name')

    They're class wide functions, but they need individual instances to
    work.

  iterate
      $overlay->iterate( $what, sub {
          my ( $context_information ) = shift;

      } );

    The iterate method provides a handy way to do walking across the whole
    tree stopping at each of a given type.

    *   "$what = 'categories'"

          $overlay->iterate( categories => sub {
              my ( $self, $c ) = shift;
              # $c->{category_name}  # String
              # $c->{category}       # Category Object
              # $c->{num_categories} # How many categories are there to iterate
              # $c->{last_category}  # Index ID of the last category.
              # $c->{category_num}   # Index ID of the current category.
          } );

    *   "$what = 'packages'"

          $overlay->iterate( packages => sub {
              my ( $self, $c ) = shift;
              # $c->{category_name}  # String
              # $c->{category}       # Category Object
              # $c->{num_categories} # How many categories are there to iterate
              # $c->{last_category}  # Index ID of the last category.
              # $c->{category_num}   # Index ID of the current category.
              #
              # $c->{package_name}   # String
              # See ::Category for the rest of the fields provided by the package Iterator.
              # Very similar though.
          } );

    *   "$what = 'ebuilds'"

          $overlay->iterate( ebuilds => sub {
              my ( $self, $c ) = shift;
              # $c->{category_name}  # String
              # $c->{category}       # Category Object
              # $c->{num_categories} # How many categories are there to iterate
              # $c->{last_category}  # Index ID of the last category.
              # $c->{category_num}   # Index ID of the current category.
              #
              # $c->{package_name}   # String
              # See ::Category for the rest of the fields provided by the package Iterator.
              # Very similar though.
              #
              # $c->{ebuild_name}   # String
              # See ::Package for the rest of the fields provided by the ebuild Iterator.
              # Very similar though.
          } );
