CPAN::API::HOWTO(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  CPAN::API::HOWTO(3)



NAME
       CPAN::API::HOWTO - a recipe book for programming with CPAN.pm

RECIPES
       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 distribu-
       tion 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.
