People who redistribute Perl code must be careful that all of the
included libraries are compatible with the final distribution license.
A large fraction of CPAN packages are licensed as C<Artistic/GPL>,
like Perl itself, but not all.  If you are going to package your work
in, say, a PAR archive with all of its dependencies it's critical
that you inspect the licenses of those dependencies.  This module can

This module utilizes CPANPLUS to do much of the hard work of
locating the requested CPAN distribution, downloading and extracting
it.  If you've never used CPANPLUS before, there will be a one-time
setup step for that module.



=item $pkg->new()

=item $pkg->new({key =E<gt> value, ...})

Creates a new instance.  Optional parameters can be passed in a hash
reference.  The recognized options are:


=item verbose => BOOLEAN

Causes some diagnostics to be printed to STDOUT if true.

=item cpanhost => URL

Changes the default CPANPLUS mirror to be the specified URL.



sub new
   my $pkg       = shift;
   my $opts_hash = shift || {};

   my $self = bless {
      opts          => $opts_hash,
      license_cache => {},
      depends_cache => {},
   }, $pkg;

   $self->{cp} = Module::License::Report::CPANPLUS->new({
      verbose => $self->{opts}->{verbose},
      cb      => $self->{opts}->{cb},  # primarily just for testing

   if ($self->{opts}->{cpanhost})
      if (!$self->{cp}->set_host($self->{opts}->{cpanhost}))
         croak 'Failed to set CPAN host URL';

   return $self;

=item $self->license($module_name)

Retrieves a license object for the specified module, or undef if no
license could be found.  The license object stringifies to the name of
the license.  See also Module::License::Report::Object.

The C<$module_name> argument is usually a package name like
C<Foo::Bar>.  It can also be the distribution name, like C<Foo-Bar>.
This is useful for distributions like Text-PDF where there is no
actual module named Text::PDF, but which has Text::PDF::File

This method uses CPANPLUS to download and inspect the source
distribution of the module.  If you've never used CPANPLUS before,
there will be a one-time setup phase to configure that module.

   my $self        = shift;
   my $module_name = shift;

   return $self->{license_cache}->{$module_name} || undef;

=item $self->license_chain($module_name)

Returns a hash of C<dist_name =E<gt> license> pairs where the
C<dist_name> keys are the distributions of specified module and all of
its dependencies, as reported by Module::Depends.  The values are
Module::License::Report::Object instances.  Perl core modules are
omitted, as those are all known to be licensed like Perl itself.

=head1 BUGS

No specific bugs known.  See for more up-to-date

The heuristics for guessing the license from files other than META.yml
are sketchy.  These could always use improvement.

=head2 Comparison to other CPAN modules

I am not aware of any other module that performs the function of
determining license, except in limited ways (like CPANPLUS determines
DSLIP and Module::Build uses C<Build.PL>).

Other modules that report module/package metadata include:
Module::Info, Module::Info::File.


This module has over 80% test code coverage in every category and over
90% overall, as reported by Devel::Cover via C<perl Build

This module passes Perl Best Practices guidelines, as enforced by
Perl::Critic v0.12_03.
