This document describes version 1.062 of App::lcpan::Cmd::authors (from Perl distribution App-lcpan), released on 2020-08-13.




 handle_cmd(%args) -> [status, msg, payload, meta]

List authors.


  • List all authors:

  • Find CPAN IDs which start with something:

     handle_cmd( query => ["MICHAEL%"]); # -> undef

This function is not exported.

Arguments ('*' denotes required arguments):

  • added_or_updated_since => date

    Include only records that are added/updated since a certain date.

  • added_or_updated_since_last_index_update => true

    Include only records that are added/updated since the last index update.

  • added_or_updated_since_last_n_index_updates => posint

    Include only records that are added/updated since the last N index updates.

  • cpan => dirname

    Location of your local CPAN mirror, e.g. /path/to/cpan.

    Defaults to ~/cpan.

  • detail => bool

  • index_name => filename (default: "index.db")

    Filename of index.

    If index_name is a filename without any path, e.g. index.db then index will be located in the top-level of cpan. If index_name contains a path, e.g. ./index.db or /home/ujang/lcpan.db then the index will be located solely using the index_name.

  • or => bool

    When there are more than one query, perform OR instead of AND logic.

  • query => array[str]

    Search query.

  • query_type => str (default: "any")

  • use_bootstrap => bool (default: 1)

    Whether to use bootstrap database from App-lcpan-Bootstrap.

    If you are indexing your private CPAN-like repository, you want to turn this off.

First element (status) is an integer containing HTTP status code (200 means OK, 4xx caller error, 5xx function error). Second element (msg) is a string containing error message, or 'OK' if status is 200. Third element (payload) is optional, the actual result. Fourth element (meta) is called result metadata and is optional, a hash that contains extra information.

Return value: (any)
