CPAN::Admin(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation CPAN::Admin(3)NAMECPAN::Admin - A CPAN Shell for CPAN admins
perl -MCPAN::Admin -e shell
DESCRIPTIONCPAN::Admin is a subclass of CPAN that adds the commands "register" and
"modsearch" to the CPAN shell.
"register" calls "get" on the named module, assembles a couple of
informations (description, language), and calls Netscape with the
-remote argument so that a form is filled with all the assembled infor‐
mations and the registration can be performed with a single click. If
the command line has more than one argument, register does not run a
"get", instead it interprets the rest of the line as DSLI status,
description, and userid and sends them to netscape such that the form
is again mostly filled and can be edited or confirmed with a single
click. CPAN::Admin never performs the submission click for you, it is
only intended to fill in the form on PAUSE and leave the confirmation
"modsearch" simply passes the arguments to the search engine for the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list at http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de where all
registration requests are stored. It does so in the same way as regis‐
ter, namely with the "netscape -remote" command.
An experimental feature has also been added, namely to color already
registered modules in listings. If you have Term::ANSIColor installed,
the u, r, and m commands will show already registered modules in green.
URI::Escape, netscape browser available in the path, netscape must
understand the -remote switch (as far as I know, this is only available
on UNIX); coloring of registered modules is only available if
Term::ANSIColor is installed.
