Software::License(3)  User Contributed Perl Documentation Software::License(3)

NAME
       Software::License - packages that provide templated software licenses

VERSION
       version 0.103014

SYNOPSIS
	 my $license = Software::License::Discordian->new({
	   holder => 'Ricardo Signes',
	 });

	 print $output_fh $license->fulltext;

METHODS
   new
	 my $license = $subclass->new(\%arg);

       This method returns a new license object	for the	given license class.
       Valid arguments are:

	 holder	- the holder of	the copyright; required
	 year	- the year of copyright; defaults to current year

   year
   holder
       These methods are attribute readers.

   name
       This method returns the name of the license, suitable for shoving in
       the middle of a sentence, generally with	a leading capitalized "The."

   url
       This method returns the URL at which a canonical	text of	the license
       can be found, if	one is available.  If possible,	this will point	at
       plain text, but it may point to an HTML resource.

   notice
       This method returns a snippet of	text, usually a	few lines, indicating
       the copyright holder and	year of	copyright, as well as an indication of
       the license under which the software is distributed.

   license
       This method returns the full text of the	license.

   fulltext
       This method returns the complete	text of	the license, preceded by the
       copyright notice.

   version
       This method returns the version of the license.	If the license is not
       versioned, this method will return false.

   meta_name
       This method returns the string that should be used for this license in
       the CPAN	META.yml file, according to the	CPAN Meta spec v1, or undef if
       there is	no known string	to use.

       This method may also be invoked as "meta_yml_name" for legacy reasons.

   meta2_name
       This method returns the string that should be used for this license in
       the CPAN	META.json or META.yml file, according to the CPAN Meta spec
       v2, or undef if there is	no known string	to use.	 If this method	does
       not exist, and "meta_name" returns open_source, restricted,
       unrestricted, or	unknown, that value will be used.

   spdx_expression
       This method should return the string with the spdx identifier as
       indicated by <https://spdx.org/licenses/>

LOOKING	UP LICENSE CLASSES
       If you have an entry in a META.yml or META.json file, or	similar
       metadata, and want to look up the Software::License class to use, there
       are useful tools	in Software::LicenseUtils.

TODO
       o   register licenses with aliases to allow $registry->get('gpl', 2);
