# once in the cpan shell o conf plugin_list push CPAN::Plugin::Specfile # make permanent o conf commit # any time in the cpan shell to write a spec file test Acme::Meta # disable # if it is the last in plugin_list: o conf plugin_list pop # otherwise, determine the index to splice: o conf plugin_list # and then use splice, e.g. to splice position 3: o conf plugin_list splice 3 1
As a side effect, the timestamps of the written specfiles reflect the linear order of all dependencies.
WARNING: This code is just a small demo how to use the plugin system of the CPAN shell, not a full fledged spec file writer. Do not expect new features in this plugin.
