NAME

CPAN::YACSmoke::Plugin::Recent - Recent list for Yet Another CPAN Smoke Tester

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use CPAN::YACSmoke;
  my $config = {
      list_from        => Recent,
      recent_list_path => .,       # defaults to CPANPLUS base directory
      recent_list_age  => 1          # max age of file (*)
  };
  my $foo = CPAN::YACSmoke->new(config => $config);
  my @list = $foo->download_list();

  # (*) defaults to always getting a fresh file



DESCRIPTION

This module provides the backend ability to access the list of current modules in the RECENT file from a CPAN Mirror.

This module should be used together with CPAN::YACSmoke.

CONSTRUCTOR

new() Creates the plugin object.

METHODS

download_list() Return the list of distributions recorded in the latest RECENT file.

CAVEATS

This is a proto-type release. Use with caution and supervision.

The current version has a very primitive interface and limited functionality. Future versions may have a lot of options.

There is always a risk associated with automatically downloading and testing code from CPAN, which could turn out to be malicious or severely buggy. Do not run this on a critical machine.

This module uses the backend of CPANPLUS to do most of the work, so is subject to any bugs of CPANPLUS.
