   my $obj = PPM::Make::RepositorySummary->new(rep => $rep);

   $obj->summary();


DESCRIPTION

This module may be used to generate various summary files as used by ActiveState's ppm system. It searches a given directory for ppd files, which are of the form


  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

  <SOFTPKG NAME="Archive-Tar" VERSION="1,29,0,0">

    <TITLE>Archive-Tar</TITLE>

and generates four types of files summarizing the information found in all ppd files found:

If multiple <IMPLEMETATION> sections are present in the ppd file, all will be included in the corresponding summary files.

Options accepted by the new constructor include

rep => '/path/to/ppds'
This option, which is required, specifies the path to where the ppd files are found. The summary files will be written in this directory.

no_ppm4 => 1
If this option is specified, the package.xml file (which contains some extensions used by ppm4) will not be generated.

arch => 'MSWin32-x86-multi-thread-5.8'
If this option is given, it will be used as the ARCHITECTURE attribute of the REPOSITORYSUMMARY element of package.xml.
