NAME App::sync_cpantesters - Sync CPAN testers failure reports to local directories VERSION version 1.110730 SYNOPSIS # sync_cpantesters -a MARCEL -d ~/dev/cpan-testers DESCRIPTION CPAN testers provide a valuable service. The reports are available on the Web - for example, for CPAN ID "MARCEL", the reports are at <http://cpantesters.perl.org/author/MARCEL.html>. I don't like to read them in the browser and click on each individual failure report. I also don't look at the success reports. I'd rather download the failure reports and read them in my favorite editor, vim. I want to be able to run this program repeatedly and only download new failure reports, as well as delete old ones that no longer appear in the master list - probably because a new version of the distribution in question was uploaded. If you are in the same position, then this program might be for you. You need to pass a base directory using the "--dir" options. For each distribution for which there are failure reports, a directory is created. Each failure report is stored in a file within that subdirectory. The HTML is converted to plain text. For example, at one point in time, I ran the program using: sync_cpantesters -a MARCEL -d reports and the directory structure created looked like this: reports/Aspect-0.12/449224 reports/Attribute-Memoize-0.01/39824 reports/Attribute-Memoize-0.01/71010 reports/Attribute-Overload-0.04/700557 reports/Attribute-TieClasses-0.03/700575 reports/Attribute-Util-1.02/455076 reports/Attribute-Util-1.02/475237 reports/Attribute-Util-1.02/477578 reports/Attribute-Util-1.02/485231 reports/Attribute-Util-1.02/489218 ... FUNCTIONS run The main function, which is called by the "sync_cpantesters" program. usage Displays the program's usage information. get Takes a URL, downloads and returns the contents. A progress bar is displayed during the download. COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS "--author" <cpanid>, "-a" <cpanid> The CPAN ID for which you want to download CPAN testers results. In my case, this id is "MARCEL". You have to use exactly one of "--author" or "--uri". "--uri" <uri>, "-u" <uri> The URI from which to download the CPAN testers results. It needs to be in the same format as, say, <http://cpantesters.perl.org/author/MARCEL.html>. You might want to use this option if you've already downloaded the relevant file; in this case, use a "file://" URI. You have to use exactly one of "--author" or "--uri". "--dir" <dir>, "-d" <dir> The directory you want to download the reports to. This can be a relative or absolute path. This argument is mandatory. "--ignore" <regex>, "-i" <regex> If this argument is given, then every distribution whose name matches this regular expression is ignored. You might use this when you have deprecated distributions that you don't care about anymore, but the reports are still there. "--verbose", "-v" Be more verbose. "--help", "-h" Show this documentation. INSTALLATION See perlmodinstall for information and options on installing Perl modules. BUGS AND LIMITATIONS No bugs have been reported.
