MyCPAN::App::DPAN - Create a CPAN-like structure out of some dists
use MyCPAN::App::DPAN; my $application = MyCPAN::App::DPAN->activate( @ARGV ); # do some other stuff, anything that you like $application->activate_end;
This module ties together all the bits to let the
dpan do its work. It overrides the defaults in
MyCPAN::App::BackPAN::Indexer to provide the right components.
The work happens in two steps. When you call
activate, the program goes through all of the steps to examin each of the module distributions. It creates a report for each distribution, then stops. This pause right after the examination gives you the chance to do something right before the program creates the PAUSE index files. The examination might take several minutes (or even hours depending on how much you want to index), so you have a chance to check the state of the world before the next step.
When you call
activate_end, the program takes the results from the previous step and creates the PAUSE index files in the modules directory. This step should be very quick since all of the information is ready-to-go.
