cpackage - Create installation packages from CPAN modules
cpackage My::CPAN::Module cpackage --mirror http://cpan.local --mirror-only My::Private::Module
cpackage builds installation packages from CPAN modules, containing all dependencies and an install.pl script. Running install.pl will install the module (and dependencies) without requiring Internet access or a configured CPAN client on the target machine.
To create an installer from a CPAN module, run the command:
cpackage will use cpanm to download the module and its dependencies - these files will be placed in the packages/ directory. Your currently installed version of cpanm will be copied and bundled into the bin/ directory.
Finally an install.pl file will be written - running this script will install the module together with its dependencies.
All files will be written to the current working directory.
cpackage accepts the same command-line options as cpanm, so you can use it to build an installer from your own private CPAN or DarkPAN mirror.
cpackage --mirror http://my.cpan --mirror-only My::Private::Module
If you have a DarkPAN mirror set up (e.g. using CPAN::Mini::Inject) you can create installers that contain a mix of private code and public CPAN code with full dependency resolution between the two.
To run the generated installer script, use the command:
perl install.pl --sudo
