NAME

CPAN::Meta::Feature - an optional feature provided by a CPAN distribution  

VERSION

version 2.150010  

DESCRIPTION

A CPAN::Meta::Feature object describes an optional feature offered by a CPAN distribution and specified in the distribution's META.json (or META.yml) file.

For the most part, this class will only be used when operating on the result of the "feature" or "features" methods on a CPAN::Meta object.  

METHODS

 

new

  my $feature = CPAN::Meta::Feature->new( $identifier => \%spec );

This returns a new Feature object. The %spec argument to the constructor should be the same as the value of the "optional_feature" entry in the distmeta. It must contain entries for "description" and "prereqs".  

identifier

This method returns the feature's identifier.  

description

This method returns the feature's long description.  

prereqs

This method returns the feature's prerequisites as a CPAN::Meta::Prereqs object.  

BUGS

Please report any bugs or feature using the CPAN Request Tracker. Bugs can be submitted through the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org/Dist/Display.html?Queue=CPAN-Meta>

When submitting a bug or request, please include a test-file or a patch to an existing test-file that illustrates the bug or desired feature.
