File::Find::Rule::Perl - Common rules for searching for Perl things
use File::Find::Rule ();
use File::Find::Rule::Perl ();
# Find all Perl files smaller than 10k
my @files = File::Find::Rule->perl_file
# Locate all the modules that PAUSE will index
my @mod = File::Find::Rule->no_index
I write a lot of things that muck with Perl files. And it always annoyed me that finding "perl files" requires a moderately complex File::Find::Rule pattern.
File::Find::Rule::Perl provides methods for finding various types Perl-related files, or replicating search queries run on a distribution in various parts of the CPAN ecosystem.
The perl_module rule locates perl modules. That is, files that are named *.pm.
This rule is equivalent to ->file->name( '*.pm' )> and is included primarily for completeness.
The perl_test rule locates perl test scripts. That is, files that are named *.t.
This rule is equivalent to ->file->name( '*.t' )> and is included primarily for completeness.
The perl_installer rule locates perl distribution installers. That is, it locates Makefile.PL and Build.PL files.
The perl_script rule locates perl scripts.
This is any file that ends in .pl, or any files without extensions that have a perl "hash-bang" line.
The perl_file rule locates all files containing Perl code.
This includes all the files matching the above perl_module, perl_test, perl_installer and perl_script rules.
# Provide the rules directly
directory => [ 'inc', 't', 'examples' ],
file => [ 'Foo.pm', 'lib/Foo.pm' ],
# Provide a META.yml to use
$rule->no_index( 'META.yml' );
# Provide a dist root directory to look for a META.yml in
$rule->no_index( 'My-Distribution' );
# Automatically pick up a META.yml from the target directory
$rule->no_index->in( 'My-Distribution' );
The no_index method applies a set of rules as per the no_index section in a META.yml file.
