Description

CPAN Mirrors come and go, and maybe you do too. The mirror that was fast then might not be fast now, especially if you changed hemispheres.

This program goes through the MIRRORED.BY file and pings a selection of mirrors on each continent to find the fastest mirrors. From the best continent, it samples several mirrors to find the URL you should add to your configuration.

If you don't have a MIRRORED.BY file, this program will download one for you. It looks through your existing "urllist" configuration and then default locations. It stores it in "~/.cpan" (or your configured location to store files).

To Do

·
Add an option to update the CPAN configuration
·
Add an option to give JSON output
