NAME

Script::isAperlScript - This does a basic check if something is a perl script or not.

VERSION

Version 1.0.0

SYNOPSIS

This module does a basic check to see if something is a perl script.

By default it checks for the paths below.

    /^\#\!\/usr\/bin\/perl/
    /^\#\!\/usr\/bin\/suidperl/
    /^\#\!\/usr\/local\/bin\/perl/
    /^\#\!\/usr\/local\/bin\/suidperl/

This will also match stuff like "#!/usr/local/bin/perl5.8.9".

If {env=>1} is given to the new method, the checks below are done.

    /^\#!\/usr\/bin\/env.*perl/

If {any=>1} is given to the new method, the checks below are done.

    /^\#!\/.*perl/

METHODS

new

This initiates the object.

args hash

env

Allow env based scripts.

By default this is false as it can't be trusted.

any

This does very loose matching.

By default this is false as it can't be trusted.

    my $checker=Script::isAperlScript->new( \%args );

isAperlScript

This checks if a file is a Perl script.

Only one arguement is taken and it is the string in question.

In regards to the returned value, see the section "RETURN" for more information.

    my $returned=isAperlScript($file);
    if(!$returned){
        print "It returned false so there for it is a perl script.\n";
    }

stringIsAperlScript

This checks if a string is a Perl script.

Only one arguement is taken and it is the string in question.

In regards to the returned value, see the section "RETURN" for more information.

    my $returned=stringIsAperlScript($string);
    if(!$returned){
        print "It returned false so there for it is a perl script.\n";
    }

ERROR CODES/FLAGS/HANDLING

Error handling is provided by Error::Helper.
