Mini tutorial for installing CPAN modules without an Internet Connection

On a machine with an Internet connection, install minicpan:

cpan CPAN::Mini::App

(?) Prepare a ~/.minicpanrc configuration file:

local: /var/mirrors/minicpan/ remote: http://www.cpan.org/ exact_mirror: 1

Make (or update) your local mirror:

minicpan

Copy your CPAN mirror to your isolated ("air gapped") machine.

On your isolated machine, use cpan with your mirror:

$ cpan cpan> o conf urllist unshift file://$LOCAL cpan> o conf commit cpan> reload index
