I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

Today's handy script

[ #15261 ]
My ~bin/cpandl

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
use LWP::Simple;

my $author = shift or die "Must specify an author\n";
my $distro = shift or die "Must specify a distro\n";

$distro .= ".tar.gz" unless $distro =~ /\.tar\.gz$/;

my $path = sprintf( "%sauthors/id/%1.1s/%2.2s/%s/%s", $ENV{CPAN}, $author, $author, $author, $distro );

warn "Getting $path\n";
my $resp = getstore( $path, $distro );
print $resp, "\n";

and then run as

andy@mook[~]$ cpandl GAAS libwww-perl-5.72
Getting ftp://pause.cpan.org/pub/PAUSE/authors/id/G/GA/GAAS/libwww-perl-5.72.tar.gz

Of course, if you're not pulling down latest-greatest tarballs 'cause you're a cpantester, you'll want to use a mirror...
