cpan2dist is pretty cool, but it still lacks some really useful features.
I'd like to ignore core modules for a given perl version (i.e. that of the server I'll be deploying to) and those provided by debian. Ideally it could ignore modules by version number too, but that's just the icing on the cake.
anyway to get around this I've written a script that will produce an ignore file suitable for cpan2dist and takes arguments to point it at a dpkg available file, whether to include core perl modules, the version of perl to get the core modules for and filenames for input and output files. The ignore files it generates also include the version number of each module - cpan2dist will ignore that, but it can be handy if you need to check later on.
So is anybody interested in this script or is it only useful to me?
