As of 5.10, CPANPLUS will become part of the core (under another,
undetermined name). Although at this
point it is at version 0.036 and the public interface is still subject
to change, most of the fundamental pieces are in place. Now is a
good time to test it out and report any bugs.
One thing that should be noted is that you should not try to install
CPANPLUS via CPAN.pm--the interactive install doesn't seem to be handled
You can read about CPANPLUS at
There was also an
article, although it discusses an earlier version so some syntax might
be obsolete. An additional
describes the interface to testing.
Some of the main differences between CPANPLUS and CPAN.pm are:
- CPANPLUS is designed to work cross-platform (parts of it are written
in the Windows environment)
- CPANPLUS has a layered interface which seperates the shell from
the programatic interface.
