% scandeps *.pm # Print PREREQ_PM section for *.pm
% scandeps -e 'STRING' # Scan an one-liner
% scandeps -B *.pm # Include core modules
% scandeps -V *.pm # Show autoload/shared/data files
% scandeps -R *.pm # Don't recurse
% scandeps -C CACHEFILE # use CACHEFILE to cache dependencies
scandeps is a simple-minded utility that prints out the "PREREQ_PM"
section needed by modules.
If you have CPANPLUS installed, modules that are part of an earlier
module's distribution with be denoted with "S"; modules without a
distribution name on CPAN are marked with "?".
Also, if the "-B" option is specified, module belongs to a perl
distribution on CPAN (and thus uninstallable by "CPAN.pm" or
"CPANPLUS.pm") are marked with "C".
Finally, modules that has loadable shared object files (usually needing
a compiler to install) are marked with "X"; with the "-V" flag, those
files (and all other files found) will be listed before the main
output. Additionally, all module files that the scanned code depends on
but were not found (and thus not scanned recursively) are listed. These
may include genuinely missing modules or false positives. That means,
modules your code does not depend on (on this particular platform) but
that were picked up by the heuristic anyway.
Scan STRING as a string containing perl code.
-c Compiles the code and inspects its %INC, in addition to static
-x Executes the code and inspects its %INC, in addition to static
-B Include core modules in the output and the recursive search list.
-R Only show dependencies found in the files listed and do not
-V Verbose mode: Output all files found during the process; show
dependencies between modules and availability.
Additionally, warns of any missing dependencies. If you find
missing dependencies that aren't really dependencies, you have
probably found false positives.
Use CACHEFILE to speed up the scanning process by caching
