=head1 NAME
extractuse - determine what Perl modules are used in a given file
=head1 VERSION
Version 1.0 ($Id: extractuse 6744 2009-04-29 14:32:07Z $)
use version; our $VERSION = qv('1.0');
Usage: extractuse filename [...]
Given a single path referring to a file containing Perl code, this script will
determine the modules included statically. This means that files included
by C<use> and C<require> will be retrieved and listed.
This script is safe because the Perl code is never executed, only parsed by
C<Module::Extract::Use> or C<Module::ExtractUse>, which are two different
implementations of this idea. This module will prefer C<Module::Extract::Use>
if it is installed, because it uses PPI to do its parsing, rather than its
own separate grammar.
However, one limitation of this script is that only statically included
modules can be found - that is, they have to be C<use>'d or C<require>'d
at runtime, and not inside an eval string, for example. Because eval strings
are completely dynamic, there is no way of determining which modules might
be loaded under different conditions.
my @files = @ARGV;
my $class = 'Module::Extract::Use';
# if no parameters are passed, give usage information
unless (@files) {
pod2usage(msg => 'Please supply at least one filename to analyze');
eval {
require Module::Extract::Use;
if ($@) {
$class = 'Module::ExtractUse';
eval {
require Module::ExtractUse;
if ($@) {
print {*STDERR} "No usable module found; exiting...\n";
exit 1;
eval {
require Module::CoreList;
my $corelist = not $@;
foreach my $file (@files) {
my $mlist;
unless (-e $file and -r _) {
printf {*STDERR} "Failed to open file '%s' for reading\n", $file;
if ($class eq 'Module::ExtractUse') {
$mlist = Module::ExtractUse->new;
dumplist($file, $mlist->array);
else {
$mlist = Module::Extract::Use->new;
dumplist($file, $mlist->get_modules($file));
sub dumplist {
my ($file, @mods) = @_;
printf "Modules required by %s:\n", $file;
my $core = 0;
my $extern = 0;
foreach my $name (@mods) {
print ' - ' . $name;
if ($corelist) {
my $ver = Module::CoreList->first_release($name);
if (defined $ver) {
printf ' (first released with Perl %s)', $ver;
else {
print "\n";
printf "%d module(s) in core, %d external module(s)\n\n", $core, $extern;
