NAME

       CPANPLUS::Dist - base class for plugins

SYNOPSIS

           my $dist = CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE->new(
                                       module  => $modobj,
                                   );

DESCRIPTION

       "CPANPLUS::Dist" is a base class for "CPANPLUS::Dist::MM" and "CPANPLUS::Dist::Build".
       Developers of other "CPANPLUS::Dist::*" plugins should look at "CPANPLUS::Dist::Base".

ACCESSORS

       parent()
           Returns the "CPANPLUS::Module" object that parented this object.

       status()
           Returns the "Object::Accessor" object that keeps the status for this module.

STATUS ACCESSORS

       All accessors can be accessed as follows:
           $deb->status->ACCESSOR

       created()
           Boolean indicating whether the dist was created successfully.  Explicitly set to 0
           when failed, so a value of "undef" may be interpreted as "not yet attempted".

       installed()
           Boolean indicating whether the dist was installed successfully.  Explicitly set to 0
           when failed, so a value of "undef" may be interpreted as "not yet attempted".

       uninstalled()
           Boolean indicating whether the dist was uninstalled successfully.  Explicitly set to 0
           when failed, so a value of "undef" may be interpreted as "not yet attempted".

       dist()
           The location of the final distribution. This may be a file or directory, depending on
           how your distribution plug in of choice works. This will be set upon a successful
           create.

   $dist = CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE->new( module => MODOBJ );
       Create a new "CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE" object based on the provided "MODOBJ".

       *** DEPRECATED *** The optional argument "format" is used to indicate what type of dist
       you would like to create (like "CPANPLUS::Dist::MM" or "CPANPLUS::Dist::Build" and so on
       ).

       "CPANPLUS::Dist->new" is exclusively meant as a method to be inherited by
       "CPANPLUS::Dist::MM|Build".

       Returns a "CPANPLUS::Dist::YOUR_DIST_TYPE_HERE" object on success and false on failure.

   @dists = CPANPLUS::Dist->dist_types;
       Returns a list of the CPANPLUS::Dist::* classes available

   $bool = CPANPLUS::Dist->rescan_dist_types;
       Rescans @INC for available dist types. Useful if you've installed new "CPANPLUS::Dist::*"
       classes and want to make them available to the current process.

   $bool = CPANPLUS::Dist->has_dist_type( $type )
       Returns true if distribution type $type is loaded/supported.

   $bool = $dist->prereq_satisfied( modobj => $modobj, version => $version_spec )
       Returns true if this prereq is satisfied.  Returns false if it's not.  Also issues an
       error if it seems "unsatisfiable," i.e. if it can't be found on CPAN or the latest CPAN
       version doesn't satisfy it.

   $configure_requires = $dist->find_configure_requires( [file => /path/to/META.yml] )
       Reads the configure_requires for this distribution from the META.yml or META.json file in
       the root directory and returns a hashref with module names and versions required.

   $bool = $dist->_resolve_prereqs( ... )
       Makes sure prerequisites are resolved

           format          The dist class to use to make the prereqs
                           (ie. CPANPLUS::Dist::MM)

           prereqs         Hash of the prerequisite modules and their versions

           target          What to do with the prereqs.
                               create  => Just build them
                               install => Install them
                               ignore  => Ignore them

           prereq_build    If true, always build the prereqs even if already
                           resolved

           verbose         Be verbose

           force           Force the prereq to be built, even if already resolved
