NAMECPAN::API::HOWTO - a recipe book for programming with CPAN.pm
RECIPESAll 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
CPANmirror, 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.
