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.
