NAME

Module::Packaged::Generator - build list of modules packaged by a linux distribution

VERSION

version 1.111930

DESCRIPTION

This module alows to fetch modules available as native Linux (or BSD) distribution packages, and wraps them in a sqlite database. This allows people to do analysis, draw CPANTS metrics from it or whatever.

Of course, running the utility shipped in this dist will only create the database for the current distribution. But that's not our job to do crazy manipulation with this data, we just provide the data :-)

ATTRIBUTES

file

The path to the database file to be created (a string). Defaults to cpan_$dist.db, where $dist is the distribution name.

drivername

The name of the driver to use (eg, Mageia). Defaults to the actual distribution name.

METHODS

run

    $generator->run;

Create the database and populate it according to the driver's list of modules.
