cpan-outdated - detect outdated CPAN modules in your environment
# print the list of distribution that contains outdated modules % cpan-outdated # print the list of outdated modules in packages % cpan-outdated -p # verbose % cpan-outdated --verbose # alternate mirrors % cpan-outdated --mirror file:///home/user/minicpan/ # additional module path(same as cpanminus) % cpan-outdated -l extlib/ % cpan-outdated -L extlib/ # install with cpan % cpan-outdated | xargs cpan -i # install with cpanm % cpan-outdated | cpanm % cpan-outdated -p | cpanm
This script prints the list of outdated CPAN modules in your machine.
It's same feature of 'CPAN::Shell->r', but
cpan-outdatedis much faster and uses less memory.
This script can be integrated with cpanm command.
This script by default prints the outdated distribution as in the CPAN distro format, i.e:
A/AU/AUTHOR/Distribution-Name-0.10.tar.gzso you can pipe into CPAN installers, but with
-poption it can be twaked to print the module's package names.
For some tools such as cpanm installing from packages could be a bit more useful since you can track to see the old version number where you upgrade from.
