NAME ^

minicpan_webserver - Search and browse Mini CPAN

SYNOPSIS ^

  % minicpan_webserver
  % minicpan_webserver --port 8090

DESCRIPTION ^

This program provides a web server that allows you to search and browse Mini CPAN. First you must install CPAN::Mini and create a local copy of CPAN using minicpan. Then you may run minicpan_webserver and search and browse Mini CPAN at http://localhost:2963/. The listening port can be configured with --port command line option.

MINICPAN CONFIGURATION ^

CPAN::Mini::Webserver can optionally return the real names of authors instead of an ascii representation of them. This depends on the file 'authors/00whois.xml' being mirrored from CPAN. CPAN::Mini doesn't do this by default. You can tell it to mirror this file by putting the following line in your .minicpanrc:

  also_mirror: authors/00whois.xml
