Create and Maintain a cache of precompiled pod files

Module to take a collection of pod files and create a precompiled cache. Methods / functions to add a pod file to a cache.


This module is in the Raku ecosystem, so you install it in the usual way:

zef install Pod::To::Cached

Although this module is usable, it will be soon substituted by Pod::From::Cached. So it's probably better if you try and adapt to that new module.

The module is now in maintenance mode, and only bugfixes will be released.


use Pod::To::Cached;

my Pod::To::Cached $cache .= new(:path<path-to-cache>, :source<path-to-directory-with-pod-files>);


for $cache.hash-files.kv -> $source-name, $status {
    given $status {
        when 'Current' {say "$source-name」 is up to date with POD source"}
        when 'Valid' {say "$source-name」 has valid POD, but newer POD source contains invalid POD"}
        when 'Failed' {say "$source-name」 is not in cache, and source file contains invalid POD"}
        when 'New' { say "$source-name」 is not in cache and cache has not been updated"}
        when 'Old' { say "$source-name」 is in cache, but has no associated pod file in DOC"}
    user-supplied-routine-for-processing-pod( $cache.pod( $source-name ) );

# Find files with status
say 'These pod files failed:';
.say for $cache.list-files( 'Failed' );
say 'These sources have valid pod:';
.say for $cache.list-files(<Current Valid>);

# Find date when pod added to cache
my $source = 'language/pod'; # name of a documentation source
say "$source」 was added on 「{ $cache.cache-timestamp( $source ) }";

# Remove the dependence on the pod source
