NAME

CPAN::IndexPod - Index the POD from an unpacked CPAN

SYNOPSIS

  my $i = CPAN::IndexPod->new;
  $i->unpacked("/unpacked/cpan/); # use CPAN::Unpack
  $i->kinosearch("/kino/");   # must be absolute path
  $i->index;

  # Then search with:
  my @files = $i->search("vampire");

DESCRIPTION

The Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN) is a very useful collection of Perl code. It has a whole lot of module distributions. CPAN::Unpack unpacks CPAN distributions. This module will analyse the unpacked CPAN, index the Pod it contains, and allow you to search it.

Right now it allows simplistic searching of NAME, SYNOPSIS and DESCRIPTION sections and returns a list of filenames.

METHODS

new

  my $i = CPAN::IndexPod->new;

index

  $i->index;
  my @files = $i->search("vampire");
