Subject: An interface to create META files
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 507b
This is just a wish list item. I'd like a way to build up a META data structure without knowing anything about the data structure itself. Something like: $meta->add_to_provides( ... ); $meta->add_to_configure_requires( ... ); $meta->set_perl_version( ... ); $meta->set_repository( ... ); I'm not suggesting a particular interface, and there's probably a clever way to take the spec and automatically provide the interface. Some of this relates to my work to convert legacy scripts into distributions.

I like the idea, though it probably has to be a separate module as a CPAN::META object is designed to be static and valid against the spec once created. I could imagine a CPAN::Meta factory object that takes a bunch of inputs and then outputs a valid CPAN::Meta object on request. -- David
