NAME

Gentoo::MirrorList - A programmatic way to access Gentoo.org Mirror Metadata

VERSION

version 1.0.2

SYNOPSIS

  my @mirrors = Gentoo::MirrorList->region('North America')->country('CA')->ipv4->all;
  my @mirrors = Gentoo::MirrorList->region('North America')->ipv4->random(3);
  my $mirror = Gentoo::MirrorList->region('Australia')->ipv4->random();
  my @all_names = Gentoo::MirrorList->mirrorname_list
  my @australian_names = Gentoo::MirrorList->country('AU')->mirrorname_list;

DESCRIPTION

This module will download the most up-to-date copy of http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors3.xml and parse it into an array of Gentoo::MirrorList::Mirror which you can then filter down progressively using the methods defined below to find, via code, any mirror that meets a given criteria.

For efficiency, this module uses App::Cache to cache both the mirror list and the parsed representation of that list, and the data files are stored in ~/.gentoo_mirrorlist/cache/

METHODS

FILTER METHODS

All of the following self-filter the data set they are on.

  my $x = Gentoo::MirrorList->FILTER
  my $y = Gentoo::MirrorList->new()
  my $z = $y->FILTER

x and y will be the same. y and z will be the same object.

TERMINATOR LIST METHODS

If called directly on Gentoo::MirrorList will return all data possible.

If called on an object that has been filtered, only shows the data that is applicable.

MIRROR LIST METHODS

The following methods will return one or more Gentoo::MirrorList::Mirror objects,

They can be called directly on Gentoo::MirrorList or on filtered objects.

On filtered objects, the filtration that has been performed affects the output.
