NAME CPAN::Unpack - Unpack CPAN distributions SYNOPSIS use CPAN::Unpack; my $u = CPAN::Unpack->new; $u->cpan("path/to/CPAN/"); $u->destination("cpan_unpacked/"); $u->quiet(1); $u->unpack; DESCRIPTION The Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN) is a very useful collection of Perl code. It has a whole lot of module distributions. This module unpacks the latest version of each distribution. It places it in a directory of your choice with directories being the name of the distribution. It requires a local CPAN mirror to run. You can construct one using something similar to: /usr/bin/rsync -av --delete ftp.nic.funet.fi::CPAN /Users/acme/cpan/CPAN/ Note that a CPAN mirror can take up about 1.5G of space (and will take a while to rsync initially). Additionally, unpacking will use up about another 1.6G. This can be handy for code metrics, searching CPAN, or just being very nosy indeed. This uses Parse::CPAN::Packages::Fast's latest_distributions method for finding the latest distribution.
