NAME ^

CPAN::Search::Lite::Extract - extract files from CPAN distributions

DESCRIPTION ^

This module extracts the pod sections from various files in a CPAN distribution, and places them in the location specified by pod_root in the main configuration file, underneath a subdirectory denoting the distribution's name. Additionally, it copies to this subdirectory the README and META.yml files of the distribution, if they exist. Information on the prerequisites of the package, as well as the abstract, if not known at this point and if available, is extracted from META.yml and stored for future use.

It is assumed here that a local CPAN mirror exists; the no_mirror configuration option will cause this extraction to be skipped.
