NAME

CPAN::Mini::NoLargeFiles - Create a CPAN mirror excluding files that are too large

VERSION

This document describes version 0.02 of CPAN::Mini::NoLargeFiles (from Perl distribution CPAN-Mini-NoLargeFiles), released on 2015-01-13.

SYNOPSIS

By default files larger than 10MB will be skipped:

 % minicpan -c CPAN::Mini::NoLargeFiles ...

To specify size:

 % MAX_FILE_SIZE=20000000 minicpan -c CPAN::Mini::NoLargeFiles ...

DESCRIPTION

There are files uploaded to CPAN that are quite large (over 100MB). For those like me who are often on a limited mobile data plan, or using a miniscule-sized SSD, this CPAN::Mini subclass might be useful.

This is a thin wrapper for LWP::UserAgent::Patch::FilterMirrorMaxSize, so instead of:

 % PERL5OPT="-MLWP::UserAgent::Patch::FilterMirrorMaxSize=-size,10485760,-verbose,1" minicpan ...

you can just do:

 % cpan -c CPAN::Mini::NoLargeFiles ...

FAQ

How to mix with other subclasses (e.g. I also want to use CPAN::Mini::LatestDistVersion)

Use the patch directly instead of this subclass (see Description).
