Query­ing the CTAN Database

The CTAN pro­vides mean to ac­cess the database and re­trieve the in­for­ma­tion in form of XML files. Sev­eral en­ti­ties can be queried.

The queries can be sent to the por­tal in form of a HTTP GET or POST re­quest with some pa­ram­e­ters. The re­sponse has the XML file as body. The re­quest URL and pa­ram­e­ters as well as the re­sponse are de­scribed on the de­tail pages.

Note: This is an ex­per­i­men­tal fea­ture and might be de­vel­oped fur­ther in the fu­ture.
