I'd like to use CPAN::Common::Index, but from my understanding, it needs to be pointed at the sources of information to use. I'd rather use a local cache of the information, which is typically what CPAN.pm provides. The simplest setup I found is: use CPAN::Common::Index::Mux::Ordered; use CPAN; CPAN::HandleConfig->load(); $index = CPAN::Common::Index::Mux::Ordered->assemble( Mirror => { mirror => "file://$CPAN::Config->{keep_source_where}" }, ); I still need to do most of the dance required to silence CPAN.pm when it tries to configure itself for the first time. I haven't been able yet to obtain the list of all authors id from $index, but I suppose I must be doing something wrong. It would be nice if CPAN::Common::Index had a configuration file, and even better, if it was able to configure itself automagically when it has no configuration file at hand. -- BooK

CPAN::Common::Index should have some cookbook documentation. Show quoted text

A local config file (so cpan code would run differently depending on who runs it, according to local preferences), as well as some clear directives from the calling code about what backends are preferred... Yesterday I was pondering using the 'less' pragma so "use less 'memory'", 'use less "disk"' etc could help choose between backends. But, that should be discussed in its queue, not here! :)
