NAME

Parse::CPAN::Perms - Parse 06perms.txt.gz

VERSION

version 0.004

SYNOPSIS

# 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');

DESCRIPTION

!! 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.

CONSTRUCTOR

  • new('path/to/06perms.txt.gz')

  • 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.

METHODS

  • perms()

    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 permsfile has 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 $force is true, then the permissions hash is cleared unconditionally.

SEE ALSO

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.
