URI::cpan - URLs that refer to things on the CPAN
use URI::cpan; my $uri = URI->new('cpan:///distfile/RJBS/URI-cpan-1.000.tar.gz'); $uri->author; # => RJBS $uri->dist_name; # => URI-cpan $uri->dist_version; # => 1.000
Other forms of cpan: URI include:
Reserved for likely future use are:
cpan:///dist cpan:///module cpan:///package
URI objects are difficult to subclass, so I have not (yet?) taken the time to remove mutability from the objects. This means that you can probably alter a URI::cpan object into a state where it is no longer valid.
Please don't change the contents of these objects after construction.
This code is derived from code written at Pobox.com by Hans Dieter Pearcey. Dieter helped thrash out this new implementation, too.
