Official Mirror
Parse::CPAN::Meta is a parser for META.yml files, based on the parser from
YAML::Tiny. Since the Tiny implementation supports a basic subset of the
full YAML specification, it has enough parts to implement parsing of typical
META.yml files. Parse::CPAN::Meta provides a very simply API of only two
functions, based on the YAML functions of the same name. Wherever possible,
identical calling semantics are used.
