CPAN::Mini is a Perl module that provides a simple mechanism to build and
update a minimal mirror of the CPAN on your local disk. It contains only
those files needed to install the newest version of every distribution.
This package also provides a command line utility, minicpan, which can be
used to create and update such mirrors easily and without writing any code.
