Notes on CPAN

CPAN is a Perl package update system. More info here: [[1]]

I prefer to get my packages from here: [[2]]

You can use it from the command line, or via its own interactive shell.

CPAN interactive shell notes

To start the shell, run this as root, using:

$ cpan

  • Use o conf <option> set <value> to set options (note these will not be saved to disk unless you commit the changes!).
  • Use o conf commit to save (commit) changes to settings to disk.
