Entire project on CPAN -- including all modulesby stevieb (Abbot)
|on Mar 08, 2012 at 20:56 UTC||Need Help??|
stevieb has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
A couple years ago, I wrote an entire billing/accounting/client management system suited for an *SP environment. To see how CPAN would deal with it, I threw it up: http://search.cpan.org/~steveb/Business-ISP-0.13_02/README
The system isn't really installable, but when it is installed, it is functional. Overlook the crappy code I desire to fix for a moment...
What I want to know, is how I can tell CPAN to install all of my modules from this distribution in one pass. I've found it isn't as easy as "perl -MCPAN -e 'install Business::ISP::'. I tried to include an ISP.pm module to see if that would help, but it didn't. This distribution is more of a complete integrated system than anything
Beyond that, this project uses ExtUtils::MakeMaker, which I am having a hard time figuring out how to ensure dependencies are installed. I have a user-input Makefile.PL that I bypass for CPAN, but I'm kind of stuck in these two areas to move forward on this project.
Any tips appreciated.
