CPAN::Recent::Uploads(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation CPAN::Recent::Uploads(3)

CPAN::Recent::Uploads - Find the distributions recently uploaded to CPAN

version 0.16

  use CPAN::Recent::Uploads;

  my $weekago = time() - ( 7 * 24 * 60 * 60 );

  my @uploads = CPAN::Recent::Uploads->recent( $weekago );

  # as a one liner (seeing the weeks worth of uploads).

  perl -MCPAN::Recent::Uploads -le 'print for CPAN::Recent::Uploads->recent;'

CPAN::Recent::Uploads provides a mechanism for obtaining a list of the RECENT uploads to "CPAN" as determined from the files produced by File::Rsync::Mirror::Recentfile that exist in the "authors/" directory on "CPAN".

Takes two optional arguments. The first argument is an "epoch" time you wish to find the uploads since. If it is not supplied the default is the current time minus one week. The second argument is the URL of a "CPAN" mirror you wish to query. If it is not supplied then "" is used.

In a list context it returns a list of uploaded distributions ordered by the time they were uploaded (ie. oldest first, increasing in recentness ).

In a scalar context it returns a hash reference keyed on distribution with the values being the "epoch" time that that distribution entered "CPAN".
