       Software::LicenseUtils - little useful bits of code for licensey things


       version 0.103014


         my @guesses = Software::LicenseUtils->guess_license_from_pod($pm_text);

       Given text containing POD, like a .pm file, this method will attempt to guess at the
       license under which the code is available.  This method will either a list of
       Software::License classes (or instances) or false.

       Calling this method in scalar context is a fatal error.

         my @guesses = Software::LicenseUtils->guess_license_from_meta($meta_str);

       Given the content of the META.(yml|json) file found in a CPAN distribution, this method
       makes a guess as to which licenses may apply to the distribution.  It will return a list
       of zero or more Software::License instances or classes.

         my @guesses = Software::LicenseUtils->guess_license_from_meta_key($key, $v);

       This method returns zero or more Software::License classes known to use $key as their META
       key.  If $v is supplied, it specifies whether to treat $key as a v1 or v2 meta entry.  Any
       value other than 1 or 2 will raise an exception.

         my $license_object = Software::LicenseUtils->new_from_short_name( {
            short_name => 'GPL-1',
            holder => 'X. Ample'
         }) ;

       Create a new Software::License object from the license specified with "short_name". Known
       short license names are "GPL-*", "LGPL-*" , "Artistic" and "Artistic-*"

         my $license_object = Software::LicenseUtils->new_from_spdx_expression( {
            spdx_expression => 'MPL-2.0',
            holder => 'X. Ample'
         }) ;

       Create a new Software::License object from the license specified with "spdx_expression".
       Some licenses doesn't have an spdx identifier (for example Software::License::Perl_5), so
       you can pass spdx identifier but also expressions.  Known spdx license identifiers are
       "BSD", "MPL-1.0".
