NAME
       CPAN::SQLite::Info - extract information from CPAN indices

DESCRIPTION
       This module extracts information from the CPAN indices $CPAN/modules/03modlist.data.gz, $CPAN/modules/02pack-
       ages.details.txt.gz, and $CPAN/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz.

       A "CPAN::SQLite::Info" object is created with

           my $info = CPAN::SQLite::Info->new(CPAN => $cpan);

       where $cpan specifies the top-level CPAN directory underneath which the index files are found. Calling

           $info->fetch_info();

       will result in the object being populated with 3 hash references:

       * "$info->{dists}"
          This contains information on distributions. Keys of this hash reference are the distribution names, with the
          associated value being a hash reference with keys of

          "dist_vers" - the version of the CPAN file
          "dist_file" - the CPAN filename
          "cpanid" - the CPAN author id
          "dist_abs" - a description, if available
          "modules" - specifies the modules present in the distribution:
               for my $module (keys %{$info->{$distname}->{modules}}) {
                 print "Module: $module\n";
               }

          "chapterid" - specifies the chapterid and the subchapter for the distribution:
               for my $id (keys %{$info->{$distname}->{chapterid}}) {
                 print "For chapterid $id\n";
                 for my $sc (keys %{$info->{$distname}->{chapterid}->{$id}}) {
                   print "   Subchapter: $sc\n";
                 }
               }

       * "$info->{mods}"
          This contains information on modules. Keys of this hash reference are the module names, with the associated
          values being a hash reference with keys of

          "dist_name" - the distribution name containing the module
          "mod_vers" - the version
          "mod_abs" - a description, if available
          "chapterid" - the chapter id of the module, if present
          "dslip" - a 5 character string specifying the dslip (development, support, language, interface, public
          licence) information.
       * "$info->{auths}"
          This contains information on CPAN authors. Keys of this hash reference are the CPAN ids, with the associated
          value being a hash reference with keys of

          "fullname" - the author's full name
          "email" - the author's email address
