Glib::ParseXSDoc - Parse POD and XSub declarations from XS files.
This is the heart of an automatic API reference documentation system for XS-based Perl modules. FIXME more info here!!
FIXME document recognized POD directives and the output data structures
=for apidocparagraphs following an
=objectparagraphs in the verbatim sections are stripped (as are the
=objectparagraphs), and will appear instead in
FYI, this creates a new parser and calls
parse_file on it for each
input filename; then calls
swizzle_pods to ensure that any
=for apidoc name pods are matched up with their target xsubs; and
finally calls Data::Dumper to write the data to stdout. So, if you want
to get finer control over how the output is created, or keep all the data
in-process, now you know how. :-)
=for objectdirective. Ensures that it exists. Returns a reference to the member of the main data structure, so modifications are permanent and useful.
=for apidocpods to xsubs.
We look for the strings anywhere, but you'll typically have it at the end of the line, e.g.:
=for apidoc symname __hide__ for detached blocks =for apidoc __hide__ for attached blocks =for apidoc symname __function__ for functions rather than methods =for apidoc __function__ for functions rather than methods
Without artificial intelligence, we cannot reliably determine anything about the types or number of parameters returned from xsubs with PPCODE bodies.
OUTLIST parameters are pulled from the args list and put into an "outlist" key. IN_OUTLIST parameters are put into both.
Data type names are not mangled at all.
Note that the method can take either a list of lines or a reference to a list of lines. The flat list form is provided for compatibility; the reference form is preferred, to avoid duplicating a potentially large list of strings.
