NAME

       Test::CheckManifest - Check if your Manifest matches your distro

VERSION

       version 1.42

SYNOPSIS

         use Test::CheckManifest;
         ok_manifest();

   EXPORT
       There is only one method exported: "ok_manifest"

METHODS

   ok_manifest   [{exclude => $arref}][$msg]
       checks whether the Manifest file matches the distro or not. To match a distro the Manifest
       has to name all files that come along with the distribution.

       To check the Manifest file, this module searches for a file named "MANIFEST".

       To exclude some directories from this test, you can specify these dirs in the hashref.

         ok_manifest({exclude => ['/var/test/']});

       is ok if the files in "/path/to/your/dist/var/test/" are not named in the "MANIFEST" file.
       That means that the paths in the exclude array must be "pseudo-absolute" (absolute to your
       distribution).

       To use a "filter" you can use the key "filter"

         ok_manifest({filter => [qr/\.svn/]});

       With that you can exclude all files with an '.svn' in the filename or in the path from the
       test.

       These files would be excluded (as examples):

       ·   /dist/var/.svn/test

       ·   /dist/lib/test.svn

       You can also combine "filter" and "exclude" with 'and' or 'or' default is 'or':

         ok_manifest({exclude => ['/var/test'],
                      filter  => [qr/\.svn/],
                      bool    => 'and'});

       These files have to be named in the "MANIFEST":

       ·   /var/foo/.svn/any.file

       ·   /dist/t/file.svn

       ·   /var/test/test.txt

       These files not:

       ·   /var/test/.svn/*

       ·   /var/test/file.svn

       By default, "ok_manifest" will look for the file "MANIFEST" in the current working
       directory (which is how tests are traditionally run). If you wish to specify a different
       directory, you may pass the "file" or "dir" parameters, for example:

         ok_manifest({dir => '/path/to/my/dist/'});

EXCLUDING FILES

       Beside "filter" and "exclude" there is another way to exclude files: "MANIFEST.SKIP". This
       is a file with filenames that should be excluded:

         t/my_very_own.t
         file_to.skip

REPLACE THIS MODULE

       You can replace the test scripts using "Test::CheckManifest" with this one using
       ExtUtils::Manifest.

           use Test::More tests => 2;
           use ExtUtils::Manifest;

           is_deeply [ ExtUtils::Manifest::manicheck() ], [], 'missing';
           is_deeply [ ExtUtils::Manifest::filecheck() ], [], 'extra';

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

       Great thanks to Christopher H. Laco, who did a lot of testing stuff for me and he reported
       some bugs to RT.
