NAME

CPANPLUS::Config - configuration defaults and heuristics for CPANPLUS

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    ### conf object via CPANPLUS::Backend;
    $cb   = CPANPLUS::Backend->new;
    $conf = $cb->configure_object;

    ### or as a standalone object
    $conf = CPANPLUS::Configure->new;

    ### values in conf section
    $verbose = $conf->get_conf( verbose );
    $conf->set_conf( verbose => 1 );

    ### values in program section
    $editor = $conf->get_program( editor );
    $conf->set_program( editor => /bin/vi );



DESCRIPTION

This module contains defaults and heuristics for configuration information for CPANPLUS. To change any of these values, please see the documentation in CPANPLUS::Configure.

Below you’ll find a list of configuration types and keys, and their meaning.

CONFIGURATION

    Section ’conf’

hosts An array ref containing hosts entries to be queried for packages.

An example entry would like this:



    {   scheme => ftp,
        path => /pub/CPAN/,
        host => ftp.cpan.org
    },



allow_build_interactivity Boolean flag to indicate whether ’perl Makefile.PL’ and similar are run interactively or not. Defaults to ’true’.
allow_unknown_prereqs Boolean flag to indicate that unresolvable prereqs are acceptable. If true then only warnings will be issued (the behaviour before 0.9114) when a module is unresolvable from any our sources (CPAN and/or custom_sources). If false then an unresolvable prereq will fail during the prepare stage of distribution installation. Defaults to true.
base The directory CPANPLUS keeps all its build and state information in. Defaults to ~/.cpanplus. If File::HomeDir is available, that will be used to work out your HOME directory. This may be overridden by setting the PERL5_CPANPLUS_HOME environment variable, see CPANPLUS::Config::HomeEnv for more details.
buildflags Any flags to be passed to ’perl Build.PL’. See perldoc Module::Build for details. Defaults to an empty string.
cpantest Boolean flag to indicate whether or not to mail test results of module installations to http://testers.cpan.org. Defaults to ’false’.
cpantest_mx String holding an explicit mailserver to use when sending out emails for http://testers.cpan.org. An empty string will use your system settings. Defaults to an empty string.
debug Boolean flag to enable or disable extensive debugging information. Defaults to ’false’.
dist_type Default distribution type to use when building packages. See cpan2dist or CPANPLUS::Dist for details. An empty string will not use any package building software. Defaults to an empty string.
email Email address to use for anonymous ftp access and as from address when sending emails. Defaults to an example.com address.
enable_custom_sources Boolean flag indicating whether custom sources should be enabled or not. See the CUSTOM MODULE SOURCES in CPANPLUS::Backend for details on how to use them.

Defaults to true

extractdir String containing the directory where fetched archives should be extracted. An empty string will use a directory under your base directory. Defaults to an empty string.
fetchdir String containing the directory where fetched archives should be stored. An empty string will use a directory under your base directory. Defaults to an empty string.
flush Boolean indicating whether build failures, cache dirs etc should be flushed after every operation or not. Defaults to ’true’.
force Boolean indicating whether files should be forcefully overwritten if they exist, modules should be installed when they fail tests, etc. Defaults to ’false’.
histfile A string containing the history filename of the CPANPLUS readline instance.
lib An array ref holding directories to be added to @INC when CPANPLUS starts up. Defaults to an empty array reference.
makeflags A string holding flags that will be passed to the make program when invoked. Defaults to an empty string.
makemakerflags A string holding flags that will be passed to perl Makefile.PL when invoked. Defaults to an empty string.
md5 A boolean indicating whether or not sha256 checks should be done when an archive is fetched. Defaults to ’trueif you have Digest::SHA installed, ’false’ otherwise.
no_update A boolean indicating whether or not CPANPLUS’ source files should be updated or not. Defaults to ’false’.
passive A boolean indicating whether or not to use passive ftp connections. Defaults to ’true’.
prefer_bin A boolean indicating whether or not to prefer command line programs over perl modules. Defaults to ’false’ unless you do not have Compress::Zlib installed (as that would mean we could not extract .tar.gz files)
prefer_makefile A boolean indicating whether or not prefer a Makefile.PL over a Build.PL file if both are present. Defaults to ’true’, unless the perl version is at least 5.10.1 or appropriate versions of Module::Build and CPANPLUS::Dist::Build are available.
prereqs A digit indicating what to do when a package you are installing has a prerequisite. Options are:



    0   Do not install
    1   Install
    2   Ask
    3   Ignore  (dangerous, install will probably fail!)



The default is to ask.

shell A string holding the shell class you wish to start up when starting CPANPLUS in interactive mode.

Defaults to CPANPLUS::Shell::Default, the default CPANPLUS shell.

show_startup_tip A boolean indicating whether or not to show start up tips in the interactive shell. Defaults to ’true’.
signature A boolean indicating whether or not check signatures if packages are signed. Defaults to ’trueif you have gpg or Crypt::OpenPGP installed, ’false’ otherwise.
skiptest A boolean indicating whether or not to skip tests when installing modules. Defaults to ’false’.
storable A boolean indicating whether or not to use Storable to write compiled source file information to disk. This makes for faster startup and look up times, but takes extra diskspace. Defaults to ’trueif you have Storable installed and ’false’ if you don’t.
timeout Digit indicating the time before a fetch request times out (in seconds). Defaults to 300.
verbose A boolean indicating whether or not CPANPLUS runs in verbose mode. Defaults to ’trueif you have the environment variable PERL5_CPANPLUS_VERBOSE set to true, ’false’ otherwise.

It is recommended you run with verbose enabled, but it is disabled for historical reasons.

write_install_log A boolean indicating whether or not to write install logs after installing a module using the interactive shell. Defaults to ’true’.
source_engine Class to use as the source engine, which is generally a subclass of CPANPLUS::Internals::Source. Default to CPANPLUS::Internals::Source::Memory.
cpantest_reporter_args A hashref of key => value pairs that are passed to the constructor of Test::Reporter. If you’d want to enable TLS for example, you’d set it to:



  { transport       => Net::SMTP::TLS,
    transport_args  => [ User => Joe, Password => 123 ],
  }



    Section ’program’

editor A string holding the path to your editor of choice. Defaults to your $ENV{EDITOR}, $ENV{VISUAL}, ’vi’ or ’pico’ programs, in that order.
make A string holding the path to your make binary. Looks for the make program used to build perl or failing that, a make in your path.
pager A string holding the path to your pager of choice. Defaults to your $ENV{PAGER}, ’less’ or ’more’ programs, in that order.
shell A string holding the path to your login shell of choice. Defaults to your $ENV{SHELL} setting, or $ENV{COMSPEC} on Windows.
sudo A string holding the path to your sudo binary if your install path requires super user permissions. Looks for sudo in your path, or remains empty if you do not require super user permissions to install.
perlwrapper <B>DEPRECATEDB>

A string holding the path to the cpanp-run-perl utility bundled with CPANPLUS, which is used to enable autoflushing in spawned processes.
