Parse::CPAN::Perms - Parse 06perms.txt.gz
# Construction my $perms = Parse::CPAN::Perms->new('path/to/06perms.txt.gz'); # Get all perms data as hash ref my $perms_data = $perms->perms; # Boolean convenience method $perms->is_authorized(AUTHOR => 'Package::Name');
!! THIS MODULE IS EXPERIMENTAL. INTERFACE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE !!
This module parses the
06perms.txt.gz file from a CPAN-like repository.
At this time, it only parses the compressed form and it provides no mechanism
for adding new permissions or writing the data back out to a file. If you
desire those features, please contact the author.
new(parmsfile => 'path/to/06perms.txt.gz')
Constructs a new instance of Parse::CPAN::Perms from the specified perms file. The file must exist and must be readable.
Returns all the permission data as a hash reference
is_authorized(AUTHOR => 'Package::Name')
Returns true if the author has permission for the package
refresh( $force )
Causes the permisions hash to be cleared if the
permsfilehas changed since the last time it was read. The permissions hash will be lazily re-read from disk the next time it is needed. If
$forceis true, then the permissions hash is cleared unconditionally.
CPAN::Repository::Perms serves a similar purpose, but is a much more robust module. However, it is bundled with several other CPAN-related modules which may or may not fit your needs and desires.
You can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command.
