DESCRIPTION
       This simple shell script	just updates (or creates) a miniature CPAN
       mirror as described in CPAN::Mini.

CONFIGURATION FILE
       By default, "minicpan" will read	a configuration	file to	get
       configuration information.  The file is a simple	set of names and
       values, as in the following example:

	local:	/home/rjbs/mirrors/minicpan/
	remote:	http://your.favorite.cpan/cpan/
	exact_mirror: 1

       "minicpan" tries	to find	a configuration	file through the following
       process.	 It takes the first defined it finds:

       o   Use the value specified by "-C" on the command line

       o   Use the value in the	"CPAN_MINI_CONFIG" environment variable

       o   Use ~/.minicpanrc

       o   Use CPAN/Mini/minicpan.conf

       If the selected file does not exist, "minicpan" does not	keep looking.

       You can override	this process with a "config_file" method in your
       subclass.

       See "CPAN::Mini"	for a full listing of available	options.

TO DO
       Improve command-line options.
