NAME

       Software::License - packages that provide templated software licenses

VERSION

       version 0.103011

SYNOPSIS

         my $license = Software::License::Discordian->new({
           holder => 'Ricardo Signes',
         });

         print $output_fh $license->fulltext;

METHODS

   new
         my $license = $subclass->new(\%arg);

       This method returns a new license object for the given license class.  Valid arguments
       are:

         holder - the holder of the copyright; required
         year   - the year of copyright; defaults to current year

   year
   holder
       These methods are attribute readers.

   name
       This method returns the name of the license, suitable for shoving in the middle of a
       sentence, generally with a leading capitalized "The."

   url
       This method returns the URL at which a canonical text of the license can be found, if one
       is available.  If possible, this will point at plain text, but it may point to an HTML
       resource.

   notice
       This method returns a snippet of text, usually a few lines, indicating the copyright
       holder and year of copyright, as well as an indication of the license under which the
       software is distributed.

   summary
       This method returns a summary of the license. This summary must refer to a file containing
       the whole license. On Debian system, the file containing the whole license will be in
       "/usr/share/common-licenses/" directory. (Available only on Debian)

   debian_text
       This method returns a summary of the license (if available) or the full text of the
       license (Available only on Debian)

   license
       This method returns the full text of the license.

   fulltext
       This method returns the complete text of the license, preceded by the copyright notice.

   version
       This method returns the version of the license.  If the license is not versioned, this
       method will return false.

   meta_name
       This method returns the string that should be used for this license in the CPAN META.yml
       file, according to the CPAN Meta spec v1, or undef if there is no known string to use.

       This method may also be invoked as "meta_yml_name" for legacy reasons.

   meta2_name
       This method returns the string that should be used for this license in the CPAN META.json
       or META.yml file, according to the CPAN Meta spec v2, or undef if there is no known string
       to use.  If this method does not exist, and "meta_name" returns open_source, restricted,
       unrestricted, or unknown, that value will be used.

LOOKING UP LICENSE CLASSES

       If you have an entry in a META.yml or META.json file, or similar metadata, and want to
       look up the Software::License class to use, there are useful tools in
       Software::LicenseUtils.

TODO

       ·   register licenses with aliases to allow $registry->get('gpl', 2);
