NAME

CPAN::API::HOWTO - a recipe book for programming with CPAN.pm  

RECIPES

All of these recipes assume that you have put ``use CPAN'' at the top of your program.  

What distribution contains a particular module?

    my $distribution = CPAN::Shell->expand(
        "Module", "Data::UUID"
    )->distribution()->pretty_id();

This returns a string of the form ``AUTHORID/TARBALL''. If you want the full path and filename to this distribution on a CPAN mirror, then it is ".../authors/id/A/AU/AUTHORID/TARBALL".  

What modules does a particular distribution contain?

    CPAN::Index->reload();
    my @modules = CPAN::Shell->expand(
        "Distribution", "JHI/Graph-0.83.tar.gz"
    )->containsmods();

You may also refer to a distribution in the form A/AU/AUTHORID/TARBALL.
