TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::File(3p) Perl Programmers Reference Guide TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::File(3p)

TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::File - Stream TAP from a text file.

Version 3.44

  use TAP::Parser::Source;
  use TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::File;
  my $source = TAP::Parser::Source->new->raw( \'file.tap' );
  my $class = 'TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::File';
  my $vote  = $class->can_handle( $source );
  my $iter  = $class->make_iterator( $source );

This is a raw TAP stored in a file TAP::Parser::SourceHandler - it has 2 jobs:

1. Figure out if the raw source it's given is a file containing raw TAP output. See TAP::Parser::IteratorFactory for more details.

2. Takes raw TAP from the text file given, and converts into an iterator.

Unless you're writing a plugin or subclassing TAP::Parser, you probably won't need to use this module directly.


  my $vote = $class->can_handle( $source );

Only votes if $source looks like a regular file. Casts the following votes:

  0.9 if it's a .tap file
  0.9 if it has an extension matching any given in user config.


  my $iterator = $class->make_iterator( $source );

Returns a new TAP::Parser::Iterator::Stream for the source. "croak"s on error.


The class of iterator to use, override if you're sub-classing. Defaults to TAP::Parser::Iterator::Stream.

   extensions => [ @case_insensitive_exts_to_match ]

Please see "SUBCLASSING" in TAP::Parser for a subclassing overview.
