Shell::EnvImporter::Shell
Shell abstraction for Shell::EnvImporter

Shell::EnvImporter::Shell - Shell abstraction for Shell::EnvImporter


SYNOPSIS


  use Shell::EnvImporter;

  # Have Shell::EnvImporter create the shell object

  my $sourcer  = Shell::EnvImporter->new(

                   command  => $command,

                   shell    => $shellname,

                   auto_run => 0,

                 );

  # Fetch the shell object

  my $shellobj = $sourcer->shellobj;

  # Set the shell invocation flags

  $shellobj->flags($flags);

  # Set an alternative 'env' command

  $shellobj->envcmd($envcmd);

  # Manipulate the ignore list:

  # - set

  $shellobj->ignore(qw(_ PWD SHLVL));

  # - add to

  $shellobj->ignore_push(qw(HOME));

  # - clear

  $shellobj->ignore_clear();

  # Run the command with the modified shell

  $sourcer->run();


DESCRIPTION

Shell::EnvImporter allows you to import environment variable changes exported by an external script or command into the current environment. The Shell::EnvImporter::Shell object provides more control over interaction with the shell.


METHODS

flags()
flags(@flags)
flags_push(@flags)
Get or set the flags passed to the shell. E.g. default Bash flags are '-norc -noprofile -c', to prevent the sourcing of startup scripts. Note: If you set the flags, you MUST include the '-c' flag (or equivalent) for passing commands to the shell on the command line.

envcmd()
envcmd($command)
Get or set the command used to print out the environment. E.g., under the Bourne shell and variants, the default command is 'env'. Since 'env' only prints exported environment variables, you can change the command to 'set' to see all shell environment variables, exported or not.

ignore()
ignore(@variables)
ignore_push(@variables)
ignore_clear()
Get, set, append to, or clear the shell ignore list. The shell ignore list is a list of variables that are never imported. These are generally variables that are changed automatically by the shell (e.g. SHLVL and PWD), providing little information to a noninteractive shell.
