NAME ^

dpan - create a DarkPAN from directories

SYNOPSIS ^

        # from the command line
        prompt> dpan [-l log4perl.config] [-f config] [directory [directory2]]

        # get some help
        prompt> dpan -h
        prompt> dpan --help

DESCRIPTION ^

The dpan script takes a list of directories, indexes any Perl distributions it finds, and creates the PAUSE index files from what it finds. Afterward, you should be able to point a CPAN tool at the directory and install the distributions normally.

If you don't specify any directories, it works with the current working directory.

At the end, dpan creates a modules directory in the first directory (or the current working directory) and creates the 02package.details.txt.gz and 03modlist.data.gz.

Command-line processing

-f config_file
-l log4perl_config_file

The path to the log4perl configuration file. You can also set this with the <DPAN_LOG4PERL_FILE> environment variable or the log4perl_file configuration directive.

Configuration options

If you don't specify these values in a configuation file, dpan will use its defaults.

alarm

The maximum amount of time allowed to index a distribution, in seconds.

Default: 15

backpan_dir

The directory that has the distributions to archive. Remember, this is a subclass of MyCPAN::Indexer::App::BackPAN, so don't worry too much about the directive name.

Default: the current working directory

copy_bad_dists

If set to a true value, copy bad distributions to the named directory so you can inspect them later.

Default: 0

dispatcher_class

The Perl class to use as the dispatching class. It has to at least provide a run method. See MyCPAN::Indexer::Tutorial for details on dispatching classes.

Default: MyCPAN::Indexer::Dispatch::Serial

extra_reports_dir

You can specify another directory that contains pre-indexed reports. dpan will add these reports to its queue to create 02packages.details.txt.gz. So far, dpan doesn't check that these reports correspond to any files in the repository and could cause the checks against 02packages.details.txt.gz to fail.

You probably want to use this as a way to inject information about distributions that you skipped with skip_dists_regexes.

fresh_start

Delete the report directory before indexing. This cleans out all previous work, so you need to save that on your own. You can also set this with the DPAN_FRESH_START environment variable.

Default: 0

ignore_packages

You can tell DPAN to ignore some namespaces. The indexer may still record them, but they won't show up in 02packages.details.txt.gz. It's a space-separated list of exact package names

Default: main MY MM DB bytes DynaLoader

indexer_class

The Perl class to use as the indexing class. It has to at least provide a run method. See MyCPAN::Indexer::Tutorial for details on indexing classes.

Default: MyCPAN::App::DPAN::Indexer

indexer_id

Give yourself a name so people who who ran dpan.

Default: Joe Example <joe@example.com>

interface_class

The Perl class to use as the interface class. It has to at least provide a run method. See MyCPAN::Indexer::Tutorial for details on interface classes.

Default: MyCPAN::Indexer::Interface::Text

log4perl_file

The path to the log4perl configuration file. You can also set this with the <-l> switch or the DPAN_LOG4PERL_FILE environment variable.

organize_dists

Take all of the distributions dpan finds and put the into a PAUSE-like structure under authors/id/D/DP/DPAN. You can change the author ID with the pause_id directive.

Default: 0

parallel_jobs

The number of parallel jobs to run. This only matters for dispatcher classes that can do more than one thing at a time.

Default: 1

pause_id

The author ID to use if organize_dists is set to a true value.

Default: DPAN

queue_class MyCPAN::Indexer::SomeOtherQueue

The Perl class to use as the queue class. It has to at least provide a run method. See MyCPAN::Indexer::Tutorial for details on queue classes.

Default: MyCPAN::Indexer::SkipQueue

reporter_class

The Perl class to use as the reporter class. It has to at least provide a run method. See MyCPAN::Indexer::Tutorial for details on reporter classes.

Default: MyCPAN::App::DPAN::Reporter::Minimal

report_dir

Where to store the distribution reports.

Default: a directory named indexer_reports in the current working directory

retry_errors

Try to index a distribution even if it was previously tried and had an error. This depends on previous reports being in report_dir, so if you don't set that configuration directive, it won't matter.

Default: 1

skip_dists_regexes

You can specify a list of whitespace-separated regexes for dpan to use to filter the queue of distributions to index. You probably want to use this to skip very large distributions. You can have a pre-made index report by setting extra_reports_dir.

This is only supported by MyCPAN::Indexer::SkipQueue.

Default: null

skip_perl

When set to a true value, skip_perl cause dpan to ignore distributions that match /^(strawberry-?)perl-/, since these can take a long time to index. You can have a pre-made index report by setting extra_reports_dir.

This is only supported by MyCPAN::Indexer::SkipQueue.

Default: 0

system_id macbookpro

Give the indexing system a name, just to identify the machine.

Default: 'an unnamed machine'

temp_dir

Where to unpack the dists or create any temporary files.

Default: a temp directory in the current working directory

worker_class

The Perl class to use as the worker class. It has to at least provide a run method. See MyCPAN::Indexer::Tutorial for details on worker classes.

Default: MyCPAN::Indexer::Worker

LOG4PERL ^

You can set the Log4perl levels on each of the components separately:

        log4perl.rootLogger               =    FATAL, Null
        
        log4perl.logger.backpan_indexer   =    DEBUG, File
        
        log4perl.logger.Indexer           =    DEBUG, File
        log4perl.logger.Worker            =    DEBUG, File
        
        log4perl.logger.Interface         =    DEBUG, File
        
        log4perl.logger.Dispatcher        =    DEBUG, File
        log4perl.logger.Queue             =    DEBUG, File
        
        log4perl.logger.Reporter          =    DEBUG, File

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES ^

DPAN_FRESH_START

Delete the report directory before indexing. This cleans out all previous work, so you need to save that on your own. You can also set this with the fresh_start configuration directive.

DPAN_LOG4PERL_FILE

The path to the log4perl configuration file. You can also set this with the <-l> switch of the log4perl_file configuration directive.
