NAME¶Dist::Metadata::Archive - Base class for Dist::Metadata archive files
my $dist = Dist::Metadata->new(file => $path_to_archive);
DESCRIPTION¶This is a subclass of Dist::Metadata::Dist to enable determining the metadata from an archive file.
It is a base class for archive file formats:
It's not useful on it's own and should be used from "new" in Dist::Metadata.
$dist = Dist::Metadata::Archive->new(file => $path);
Accepts a single "file" argument that should be a path to a file.
If called from this base class "new()" will delegate to a subclass based on the filename and return a blessed instance of that subclass.
archive¶Returns an object representing the archive file.
default_file_spec¶Returns "Unix" since most archive files are be in unix format.
determine_name_and_version¶Attempts to parse name and version from file name.
file¶The "file" attribute passed to the constructor, used to load "archive".
Returns a format-specific object representing the specified file.
This must be defined by subclasses.
