in thread Is there an easier way to find and install modules on Linux?

Thanks

I appreciate this. I will take a closer look at cpanp and cpanm, and see if they can make what I need to do easier.

I have seen bundles, but not 'Tasks'; but never investigated how they're made. Could you enlighten me as to how I can group the modules I routinely use into a bundle? Is there a web page that provides documentation for how to do this?

Thanks.

Ted

    I just found a reference to "The CPAN autobundle". Alas, the page doesn't give a clue as to when it was written. Is autobundle still current; and a viable option? And is what it produces portable across platforms (my mix is Windows 7 w/Activestate perl 5.16.2, OpenSuse12.3 w/ perl 5.16.2, and Ubuntu 12.04 w/ perl 5.14.?)?

    Thanks

      Yes, the CPAN autobundle functionality is still current and is a somewhat viable option. Autobundle also bundles core modules, which means that you need some cleanup when moving between Perl versions.

        Great. Thanks

        Once autobundle has been used to make a bundle for my current workstation, how does one distinguish the core modules from the rest? And, with cpan, cpanm, and/or cpanp, are dependencies handled resiliently? (i.e. if a package depends on another that just happens to occur after it in the list of modules to install, does it handle that in a manner similar to how make handles targets that depend on other targets in the makefile? yes, I have a background in C++ programming, and in using Gnu make to handle building some of my more interesting programs)

        Thanks

        Ted

        modules have been in core and been removed from core ;;; so cleanup could be problematic ... scandeps? :)
