How to get a list of available modules from a cpan mirror

xorl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

We have a local cpan mirror with "approved" modules for use within the company. cpan is configured so that it only uses our local mirror.

Is there some easy way to get cpan to tell me what modules are available?

Thanks in advance.

    Use cpanp -m regex

    $ cpanp -m App::Ack 1 App::Ack 1.96 PETDANCE 2 App::Ack::Plugin PETDANCE 3 App::Ack::Plugin::Basic PETDANCE 4 App::Ack::Repository PETDANCE 5 App::Ack::Repository::Basic PETDANCE 6 App::Ack::Resource PETDANCE 7 App::Ack::Resource::Basic PETDANCE

    Or, start cpan, and type h, to get interactive help, but remember, cpan -m is not the same as cpan> m

    cpan[1]> m /App::Ack/ Database was generated on Thu, 24 May 2012 20:07:03 GMT Module = App::Ack (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) Module = App::Ack::Plugin (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) Module = App::Ack::Plugin::Basic (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) Module = App::Ack::Repository (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) Module < App::Ack::Repository::Basic (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) Module = App::Ack::Resource (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) Module < App::Ack::Resource::Basic (PETDANCE/ack-1.96.tar.gz) 7 items found

    Assuming that CPAN is configured to use local, this will list all the installed and all the unavailable modules(uses modlist):
    #!/usr/bin/perl BEGIN { $| = 1; } use strict; use warnings; use CPAN; use Term::ANSIColor::Print; my $print = Term::ANSIColor::Print->new(); my $d = shift @ARGV; foreach $d (CPAN::Shell->expand("Module", "/./")) { $print->bold_black( "\n\tmodule: ", $d->id), $print->dark_blue( "\tauthor: ", $d->cpan_userid), $print->bold_black("\tcurrent version: ", $d->cpan_version), $print->dark_green( "\tinstalled version: ", $d->inst_version), $print->dark_red( "\t", $d->inst_file); }
