Version 0.0.1

SYNOPSIS

    use Proc::ProcessTable::Match;
    use Proc::ProcessTable;
    use Data::Dumper;
    
    # looks for a kernel proc with the PID of 0
    my %args=(
              checks=>[
                       {
                        type=>'PID',

    } or die "New failed with...".$@;
    
    my $pt = Proc::ProcessTable->new;
    foreach my $proc ( @{$t->table} ){

            print Dumper( $proc );
        }
    }

METHODS

new

This ininitates the object.

One argument is taken and it is a hashref with the key "checks". That value needs to contains a array of hashs of checks to run.

checks hash

Every check must hit for it to beconsidered a match.

Each of these should always be defined.

type

This is the module to use to use to run the check.

The name is relative 'Proc::ProcessTable::Match::', so 'PID' becomes 'Proc::ProcessTable::Match::PID'.

invert

This inverts inverts the returned value from the check.

args

This is a hash that will be pashed to the checker module's new method.

For any required keys, check the documents for that checker.

If it does not take any arguments, just pass a blank hash.

    my %args=(
              checks=>[
                       {
                        type=>'PID',
                        invert=>0,
                        args=>{
                               pids=>['0'],
                               }
                       },{
                        type=>'KernProc',
                        invert=>0,
                        args=>{
                               }
                       }
                      ]
                     );
    
    my $ppm;
    eval{
        $ppm=Proc::ProcessTable::Match->new( \%args );
    } or die "New failed with...".$@;

match

Checks if a single Proc::ProcessTable::Process object matches the stack.

One object is argument is taken and that is the Net::Connection to check.

The return value is a boolean.

    if ( $ppm->match( $conn ) ){
        print "It matched.\n";
    }
