NAME

MyCPAN::App::DPAN::CPANUtils - various things to interact with CPAN

SYNOPSIS

        use MyCPAN::App::DPAN::CPANUtils;

        MyCPAN::App::DPAN::CPANUtils->pull_latest_whois( $directory );

DESCRIPTION

This is a base class for MyCPAN reporters. It mostly deals with file and directory names that it composes from configuration and run details. Most things should just use what is already there.

There is one abstract method that a subclass must implement on its own. The get_report_file_extension methods allows each reporter to have a unique extension by which it can recognize its own reports.
