CPANPLUS::Configure - configuration for CPANPLUS
$conf = CPANPLUS::Configure->new( ); $bool = $conf->can_save; $bool = $conf->save( $where ); @opts = $conf->options( $type ); $make = $conf->get_program(make); $verbose = $conf->set_conf( verbose => 1 );
This module deals with all the configuration issues for CPANPLUS. Users can use objects created by this module to alter the behaviour of CPANPLUS.

CW$Configure = CPANPLUS::Configure->new( load_configs => BOOL )This method returns a new object. Normal users will never need to invoke the

rescanoption is provided, your disk will be examined again to see if there are new config files that could be read. Defaults to
Returns true on success, false on failure.
can_save( [$config_location] )
Check if we can save the configuration to the specified file. If no file is provided, defaults to your personal config.
Returns true if the file can be saved, false otherwise.
CW$file = CW$conf->save( [$package_name] )Saves the configuration to the package name you provided. If this package is not
CPANPLUS::Config::System, it will be saved in your
.cpanplusdirectory, otherwise it will be attempted to be saved in the system wide directory.
If no argument is provided, it will default to your personal config.
Returns the full path to the file if the config was saved, false otherwise.

get_SOMETHING( ITEM, [ITEM, ITEM, ... ] );
get_*style accessors merely retrieves one or more desired config options.
set_SOMETHING( ITEM => VAL, [ITEM => VAL, ITEM => VAL, ... ] );
set_*style accessors set the current value for one or more config options and will return true upon success, false on failure.
add_SOMETHING( ITEM => VAL, [ITEM => VAL, ITEM => VAL, ... ] );
add_*style accessor adds a new key to a config key.
Currently, the following accessors exist:
|set|get_conf||Simple configuration directives like verbosity and favourite shell.|
|set|get_program||Location of helper programs.|
|_set|_get_build||Locations of where to put what files for CPANPLUS.|
|_set|_get_source||Locations and names of source files locally.|
|_set|_get_mirror||Locations and names of source files remotely.|
|_set|_get_fetch||Special settings pertaining to the fetching of files.|
