       TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Perl - Stream TAP from a Perl executable


       Version 3.42


         use TAP::Parser::Source;
         use TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Perl;

         my $source = TAP::Parser::Source->new->raw( \'' );

         my $class = 'TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Perl';
         my $vote  = $class->can_handle( $source );
         my $iter  = $class->make_iterator( $source );


       This is a Perl TAP::Parser::SourceHandler - it has 2 jobs:

       1. Figure out if the TAP::Parser::Source it's given is actually a Perl script

       2. Creates an iterator for Perl sources ("make_iterator").

       Unless you're writing a plugin or subclassing TAP::Parser, you probably won't need to use
       this module directly.


   Class Methods

         my $vote = $class->can_handle( $source );

       Only votes if $source looks like a file.  Casts the following votes:

         0.9  if it has a shebang ala "#!...perl"
         0.75 if it has any shebang
         0.8  if it's a .t file
         0.9  if it's a .pl file
         0.75 if it's in a 't' directory
         0.25 by default (backwards compat)


         my $iterator = $class->make_iterator( $source );

       Constructs & returns a new TAP::Parser::Iterator::Process for the source.  Assumes
       "$source->raw" contains a reference to the perl script.  "croak"s if the file could not be

       The command to run is built as follows:

         $perl @switches $perl_script @test_args

       The perl command to use is determined by "get_perl".  The command generated is guaranteed
       to preserve:

         Taint Mode, if set in the script's shebang

       Note: the command generated will not respect any shebang line defined in your Perl script.
       This is only a problem if you have compiled a custom version of Perl or if you want to use
       a specific version of Perl for one test and a different version for another, for example:

         #!/path/to/a/custom_perl --some --args
         #!/usr/local/perl-5.6/bin/perl -w

       Currently you need to write a plugin to get around this.


       Decode any taint switches from a Perl shebang line.

         # $taint will be 't'
         my $taint = TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Perl->get_taint( '#!/usr/bin/perl -t' );

         # $untaint will be undefined
         my $untaint = TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Perl->get_taint( '#!/usr/bin/perl' );


       Gets the version of Perl currently running the test suite.
