CPANPLUS::Internals::Source::MetaCPAN - MetaCPAN source implementation
# In the CPANPLUS shell CPAN Terminal> s conf no_update 1 CPAN Terminal> s conf source_engine CPANPLUS::Internals::Source::MetaCPAN CPAN Terminal> s save
CPANPLUS::Internals::Source::MetaCPAN is a http://metacpan.org/ source implementation.
It is highly experimental.
Usually CPANPLUS retrieves the CPAN index files, extracts them and builds an in-memory index of every module listed on CPAN. As you can imagine, this is quite memory intensive.
This source implementation does things slightly different.
There are some caveats.
Attempting to do searches and getting a list of out of date modules in CPANPLUS are incredibly slow due the million or so web accesses that are incurred.
