Perl::Dist::WiX::Mixin::Patching - Provides routines for patching files in a Win32 perl distribution.
This document describes Perl::Dist::WiX::Mixin::Patching version 1.500.
# This module is not to be used independently.
# It provides methods to be called on a Perl::Dist::WiX object.
This module provides methods for patching files within a distribution, either from Template Toolkit files or from edited files, for Perl::Dist::WiX.
# Loads up the template for merge module docs.
$text = $self->process_template('Merge-Module.documentation.txt.tt');
Loads the file template passed in as the first parameter, using this object, and returns it as a string.
Additional entries (beyond the one given that 'dist' is the Perl::Dist::WiX object, and 'directory_tree' is the stringification of the current directory tree) for the second parameter of Template->process are given as a list of pairs following the first parameter.
my $directory_list_ref = $self->patch_include_path();
Returns an array reference containing a list of paths containing files that are used to replace or patch files in the distribution.
my $pathlist = $self->patch_pathlist();
Returns the list of directories in patch_include_path as a File::PathList object.
patch_file patches an individual file installed in the distribution using a file from the directories returned from "patch_pathlist".
The file to patch from can either be a file that replaces the file named, or a Template Toolkit file with a '.tt' extension added to the file named.
patch_file patches an individual file installed in the distribution using a file from the perl plugin modules.
