cpaninject - Inject a distribution for installation via the CPAN shell


# Add the distribution
cpaninject myperlmodule.tar.gz

# And then install it from the cpan shell
cpan> install LOCAL/myperlmodule.tar.gz


cpaninject is a small front-end application for the CPAN::Inject module.

It takes any arbitrary Perl distribution tarball (open source or otherwise) and injects it
into the local CPAN file cache, smoothing some metadata files to make it look as if it
came from CPAN.

It makes use the officially blessed "Reserved Local CPAN Author" id "LOCAL" as the author
the distributions are added under.

To use the program, just run cpaninject mytarball.tar.gz to add it, then the CPAN shell to
install it (with full automatic recursive dependency installation).

The key here being the recursive dependency installation, which you are now able to do
even for installing non-CPAN modules.

This simplifies the installation process a little, and makes things easier on someone that
just wants to install a single commercial or non-CPAN Perl module that might have a dozen
or more CPAN dependencies.
