Source code structure

The main parts of this modules are:

  • lib/Config/Model/Backend/Yaml.pm: the "main" file of the Perl package. YAML data is converted to a Perl data structure by YAML::XS and loaded into Config::Model (through Config::Model::BackendMgr. The reverse is done when writing back data.
  • t: test files. Run the tests with prove -l t
  • t/model_tests.d test the YAML backend using Config::Model::Tester. Use prove -l t/model_test.t command to run only model tests.

Edit source code from github

If you have a github account, you can clone a repo and prepare a pull-request.

You can:

  • run git clone https://github.com/dod38fr/config-model-backend-yaml/
  • edit files
  • run prove -l t to run non-regression tests

There's no need to worry about dzil, Dist::Zilla or dist.ini files. These are useful to prepare a new release, but not to fix bugs.

Edit source code from Debian source package

You can also prepare a patch using Debian source package:

For instance:

  • download and unpack apt-get source libconfig-model-backend-yaml-perl
  • jump in cd libconfig-model-backend-yaml-perl-0.xxx
  • useful to create a patch later: git init
  • commit all files: git add -A ; git commit -m"committed all"
  • edit files
  • run prove -l t to run non-regression tests
  • run git diff and send the output to the author

Edit source code from Debian source package or CPAN tarball

Non Debian users can also prepare a patch using CPAN tarball:

  • Download tar file from http://search.cpan.org
  • unpack tar file with something like tar axvf Config-Model-Backend-Yaml-1.xxx.tar.gz
  • jump in cd Config-Model-Backend-Yaml-xxx
  • useful to create a patch later: git init
  • commit all files: git add -A ; git commit -m"committed all"
  • edit files
  • run prove -l t to run non-regression tests
  • run git diff and send the output to the author
