NAME

       CPANPLUS::Internals

SYNOPSIS

           my $internals   = CPANPLUS::Internals->_init( _conf => $conf );
           my $backend     = CPANPLUS::Internals->_retrieve_id( $ID );

DESCRIPTION

       This module is the guts of CPANPLUS -- it inherits from all other modules in the
       CPANPLUS::Internals::* namespace, thus defying normal rules of OO programming -- but if
       you're reading this, you already know what's going on ;)

       Please read the "CPANPLUS::Backend" documentation for the normal API.

ACCESSORS

       _conf
           Get/set the configure object

       _id Get/set the id

METHODS

   $internals = CPANPLUS::Internals->_init( _conf => CONFIG_OBJ )
       "_init" creates a new CPANPLUS::Internals object.

       You have to pass it a valid "CPANPLUS::Configure" object.

       Returns the object on success, or dies on failure.

   $bool = $internals->_flush( list => \@caches )
       Flushes the designated caches from the "CPANPLUS" object.

       Returns true on success, false if one or more caches could not be be flushed.

   $bool = $internals->_register_callback( name => CALLBACK_NAME, code => CODEREF );
       Registers a callback for later use by the internal libraries.

       Here is a list of the currently used callbacks:

       install_prerequisite
           Is called when the user wants to be "asked" about what to do with prerequisites.
           Should return a boolean indicating true to install the prerequisite and false to skip
           it.

       send_test_report
           Is called when the user should be prompted if he wishes to send the test report.
           Should return a boolean indicating true to send the test report and false to skip it.

       munge_test_report
           Is called when the test report message has been composed, giving the user a chance to
           programatically alter it. Should return the (munged) message to be sent.

       edit_test_report
           Is called when the user should be prompted to edit test reports about to be sent out
           by Test::Reporter. Should return a boolean indicating true to edit the test report in
           an editor and false to skip it.

       proceed_on_test_failure
           Is called when 'make test' or 'Build test' fails. Should return a boolean indicating
           whether the install should continue even if the test failed.

       munge_dist_metafile
           Is called when the "CPANPLUS::Dist::*" metafile is created, like "control" for
           "CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb", giving the user a chance to programatically alter it. Should
           return the (munged) text to be written to the metafile.

   $bool = $internals->_add_to_includepath( directories => \@dirs )
       Adds a list of directories to the include path.  This means they get added to @INC as well
       as $ENV{PERL5LIB}.

       Returns true on success, false on failure.

   $id = CPANPLUS::Internals->_last_id
       Return the id of the last object stored.

   $id = CPANPLUS::Internals->_store_id( $internals )
       Store this object; return its id.

   $obj = CPANPLUS::Internals->_retrieve_id( $ID )
       Retrieve an object based on its ID -- return false on error.

   CPANPLUS::Internals->_remove_id( $ID )
       Remove the object marked by $ID from storage.

   @objs = CPANPLUS::Internals->_return_all_objects
       Return all stored objects.
