Code::TidyAll::Result - Result returned from processing a file/source


version 0.78


    my $ct = Code::TidyAll->new(...);
    my $result = $ct->process_file($file);
    if ($result->error) {


Represents the result of "Code::TidyAll->process_file" and "Code::TidyAll->process_file". A list of these is returned from " Code::TidyAll-"process_paths >>.


This class provides the following methods:


The path that was processed, relative to the root (e.g. "lib/")


A string, one of

  • "no_match" - No plugins matched this file
  • "cached" - Cache hit (file had not changed since last processed)
  • "error" - An error occurred while applying one of the plugins
  • "checked" - File was successfully checked and did not change
  • "tidied" - File was successfully checked and changed


Contains the original contents if state is 'tidied' and with some errors (like when a file needs tidying in check-only mode)


Contains the new contents if state is 'tidied'


Contains the error message if state is 'error'


Returns true iff state is not 'error'
