Package perl-CPAN

Query, download and build perl modules from CPAN sites

https://metacpan.org/release/CPAN

The CPAN module automates or at least simplifies the make and install of
perl modules and extensions. It includes some primitive searching
capabilities and knows how to use LWP, HTTP::Tiny, Net::FTP and certain
external download clients to fetch distributions from the net.
