CLI::Ecosystem installs the ecosystem CLI script that allows introspection of Raku Programming Language's Ecosystem Content Storage.

Named arguments that are always available:

--ecosystem  the Ecosystem Content Storage to be used.
             rea | fez | p6c | cpan, default: rea
--verbose    boolean, show extended information, default: False

Named arguments that are available in search and informational queries:

--ver   the :ver<>  value to use, default: none
--auth  the :auth<> value to use, default: none
--api   the :api<>  value to use, default: 0
--from  the :from<> value to use, default: Raku

Search queries (also looks in description):

us  use-target <string>  use targets for optional string
di  distro <string>      distribution names for optional string
i   identity <string>    identities for optional string

Informational queries:

de  dependencies string          dependencies for given string
re  reverse-dependencies string  reverse dependencies for given string
m   meta string key(s)           META information for given string

Other queries:

ri  river <--top>          most referenced modules
unr unresolvable <--from>  unresolvable dependencies, include <:from>?
unv unversioned            distributions without valid version

All subcommands can be shortened as long as they are unique.
