Create minimal offline CPAN mirrorby Anonymous Monk
|on Aug 06, 2002 at 22:07 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a need for a minimal copy of the CPAN on CD or local disk.
Why? I am going on the road with no or an inadequate net connection and would like to have the latest modules available to me.
I have tried the script at: http://koschei.midnightrealm.org/code/perl/
Which is fine but it blows up too easily, LWP::Parallel::UserAgent overloads the target server - not good.
There was an discussion on this on p5p a while back.
Can any one suggest a sane way to do this, obviously some munging of 02packages.details.txt is required.
