       CPAN::Testers::Common::Client::History -	read/write CPAN	Testers'
       history file

       You should not call this	module directly. Instead, use the public
       interface available via CPAN::Testers::Common::Client:

	   use CPAN::Testers::Common::Client;

	   my $client =	CPAN::Testers::Common::Client->new(
	       distname	=> 'Class-Load-0.22',
	       author	=> 'Karen Etheridge',
	       grade	=> 'pass',

	   if (! $client->is_duplicate ) {

       This modules provides a common interface	for interacting	with the CPAN
       Tester's	history	file used by compatible	clients.

       Most methods are	private	for use	only within
       CPAN::Testers::Common::Client itself, through the API provided in the
       SYNOPSIS. However, if you really	want/need to fiddle with the history
       file, we	do provide a few helper	functions. Just	keep reading.

       This module provides the	following interface.  No functions are
       exported	by default.

   is_duplicate( \%data	)
	   my $data = {
	       dist_name => 'Class-Load-0.22',
	       phase	 => 'test',
	       grade	 => 'PASS'

	   if (CPAN::Testers::Common::Client::History::is_duplicate( $data )) {
	       # don't send duplicate reports!

       From a simple hash reference with some testing data, returns true if
       there is	a record of this report	on the history file, and false

   record_history( \%data )
	       dist_name => 'Clone',
	       phase	 => 'test',
	       grade	 => 'NA'

       Writes to the history file, adding the entry provided by	the given

   have_tested(	$type => $value	)
	   # all reports for Foo-Bar-1.23
	   @results = have_tested( dist	=> 'Foo-Bar-1.23' );

	   # all NA reports
	   @results = have_tested( grade => 'NA' );

	   # all reports on the	current	Perl/platform
	   @results = have_tested();

       Searches	the CPAN Testers' history file for records exactly matching
       the search criteria, given as pairs of field-names and desired values.

       Ordinary	search criteria	include:

       o   "dist" -- the distribution tarball name without any filename
	   suffix; from	a "CPAN::Distribution" object, this is provided	by the
	   base_id method.

       o   "phase" -- phase the	report was generated during: either 'PL',
	   'make' or 'test'.

       o   "grade" -- CPAN Testers grade: 'PASS', 'FAIL', 'NA' or 'UNKNOWN';
	   Also	may be 'DISCARD' for any failing reports not sent due to
	   missing prerequisites.

       Without additional criteria, a search will be limited to	the current
       version of Perl and the current architecture and	OS version. Additional
       criteria	may be specified explicitly or,	by specifying the empty
       string, "q{}", will match that field for	any record.

	   # all reports for Foo-Bar-1.23 on any version of perl
	   # on	the current architecture and OS	version
	   @results = have_tested( dist	=> 'Foo-Bar-1.23', perl	=> q{} );

       These additional	criteria include:

       o   "perl" -- perl version and possible patchlevel; this	will be	dotted
	   decimal (5.6.2) starting with version 5.6, or will be numeric style
	   as given by $] for older versions; if a patchlevel exists, it must
	   be specified	similar	to "5.11.0 patch 12345".

       o   "archname" -- platform architecture name as given by

       o   "osvers" -- operating system	version	as given by $Config{osvers}.

	   The function	returns	an array of hashes representing	each test
	   result, with	all of the fields listed above.
