CPAN::API::HOWTO(3pm) Perl Programmers Reference Guide CPAN::API::HOWTO(3pm)
CPAN::API::HOWTO - a recipe book for programming with CPAN.pm
All of these recipes assume that you have put "use CPAN" at the top of your program. What distribution contains a particular module? my $distribution = CPAN::Shell->expand( "Module", "Data::UUID" )->distribution()->pretty_id(); This returns a string of the form "AUTHORID/TARBALL". If you want the full path and filename to this distribution on a CPAN mirror, then it is ".../authors/id/A/AU/AUTHORID/TARBALL". What modules does a particular distribution contain? CPAN::Index->reload(); my @modules = CPAN::Shell->expand( "Distribution", "JHI/Graph-0.83.tar.gz" )->containsmods(); You may also refer to a distribution in the form A/AU/AUTHORID/TARBALL.
