#!/usr/bin/perl -w package ListDependencies; use strict; unshift @INC, sub { local $_ = $_[1]; return unless /[[:upper:]]/; s/\.pm$//i; s/[\/:]/::/g; print STDERR $_, $/; }; 1; __END__ =head1 NAME ListDependencies.pm - list any Perl code's module dependencies =head1 SYNOPSIS perl -c -MListDependencies scriptname perl -MListDependencies -MModule::Name -e1 perl -MListDependencies -e'use Module::Name' =head1 DESCRIPTION This module prints the names of any modules any piece of Perl code compiled after it tries to load to C<STDERR>, but ignores C<use pragma;> directives. You should load this module prior to all others. The C<-M> command line switch to C<perl> is a good place to do so. Note that it won't prevent execution of the code you're trying to examine. If all you want to do is list dependencies for a piece of standalone code, you may want to use the C<-c> command line switch to C<perl> to check compile time dependencies. Be aware that this will leave you blind to any attempts to load modules dynamically at runtime. =head1 CAVEATS If your own custom modules use all-lowercase names, this module won't list them. This is intentional: all-lowercase names are reserved for Perl pragmas. Note that not all pragmas are available everywhere, so they may constitute a depency as well. L<warnings> is an obvious example. =head1 BUGS There is no way to specify a different output file handle than C<STDERR>. A proper version should include an C<import()> routine to take care of this. =head1 RESTRICTIONS The module only honours Unix, DOSish and MacOS directory separators. A more portable solution would have to rely on L<File::Spec>, but unfortunately that would require this module to import modules itself. Heisenberg's Dispersion Relation applies. :-) =head1 AUTHOR Aristotle Pagaltzis <pagaltzis at gmx dot de> =head1 COPYRIGHT Copyright 2002.
