Add a module to the repository for later inclusion in the CPAN Mini mirror. The add
command requires the following parameters:

This is the name of the module (ie CPAN::Mini::Inject).

A CPAN 'like' author ID for the module. The author ID does not need to exist on CPAN.

Version number of the module. This must match the version number in the file name.

"add" in CPAN::Mini::Inject adds all modules found in the file. These options remain
for backward compatibility and do nothing.

File name and path of the module. The file name must follow the standard CPAN naming
convention (the resulting file from a "make tardist").


mcpani --add --module CPAN::Mini::Inject --authorid SSORICHE
--modversion 0.01 --file ./CPAN-Mini-Inject-0.01.tar.gz

Update your local CPAN Mini mirror from a CPAN site. Once completed add the modules
contained in the repository to it. This is the same as running "mcpani --mirror" followed
by "mcpani --inject"

Update the local CPAN Mini mirror from CPAN.

Add the repository modules into the CPAN Mini mirror.

-l, --local
A local directory to store the CPAN Mini mirror in. Specifying this option overrides the
value in the config file.

-r, --remote
A CPAN site to create the local CPAN Mini mirror from.

-v, --verbose
Display verbose processing information

-V, --version
Display version information.


mcpani uses a simple configuration file in the following format:

local: /www/CPAN
remote: ftp://ftp.cpan.org/pub/CPAN ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/CPAN
repository: /work/mymodules
passive: yes
dirmode: 0755

Description of options:

· local

location to store local CPAN::Mini mirror (*REQUIRED*)

· remote

CPAN site(s) to mirror from. Multiple sites can be listed, with spaces between them.

· repository

Location to store modules to add to the local CPAN::Mini mirror.

· passive

Enable passive FTP.

· dirmode

Set the permissions of created directories to the specified mode (octal value). The
default value is based on the umask (if supported).

mcpani will search the following four places in order:

· file pointed to by the environment variable MCPANI_CONFIG

· $HOME/.mcpani/config

· /usr/local/etc/mcpani

· /etc/mcpani
