NAME

       CPAN::API::HOWTO - a recipe book for programming with CPAN.pm


RECIPES

       All of these recipes assume that you have put "use CPAN" at the top of
       your program.

   What distribution contains a particular module?
           my $distribution = CPAN::Shell->expand(
               "Module", "Data::UUID"
           )->distribution()->pretty_id();

       This returns a string of the form "AUTHORID/TARBALL".  If you want the
       full path and filename to this distribution on a CPAN mirror, then it
       is ".../authors/id/A/AU/AUTHORID/TARBALL".

   What modules does a particular distribution contain?
           CPAN::Index->reload();
           my @modules = CPAN::Shell->expand(
               "Distribution", "JHI/Graph-0.83.tar.gz"
           )->containsmods();

       You may also refer to a distribution in the form A/AU/AUTHORID/TARBALL.
