module to find a package among CPAN-like repositories


Package::Locator attempts to answer the question: "Where a distribution that will provide this package?" The answer is divined by searching the indexes for one or more CPAN-like repositories. If you also provide a specific version number, Package::Locator will attempt to find a distribution with that version of the package, or higher. You can also ask to find the latest version of a package across all the indexes.

Package::Locator only looks at the index files for each repository, and those indexes only contain information about the latest versions of the packages within that repository. So Package::Locator is not BackPAN magic -- you cannot use it to find precisely which distribution a particular package (or file) came from.
