ORDB::CPANMeta::Generator - Generator for the CPAN Meta database
This is the module that is used to generate the "CPAN Meta" database.
For more information, and to access this database as a consumer, see the ORDB::CPANMeta module.
The bulk of the work done in this module is actually achieved with:
CPAN::Mini - Fetching the index and dist tarballs
CPAN::Mini::Visit - Expanding and processing the tarballs
Xtract - Preparing the SQLite database for distribution
new constructor creates a new processor/generator.
dir method returns the directory that the SQLite database will be written into.
dsn method returns the DBI DSN that is used to connect to the generated database.
run method executes the process that will produce and fill the final database.
Bugs should be reported via the CPAN bug tracker at
