( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This sounds like it would make life a lot easier for automation. I hacked together a build system a few weeks which used to install modules which were specified in an xml file that had module name, author, and version. I hit several roadblocks when working with Module::Build based modules because I needed to use PREFIX functionality.

I ended up having my build system bootstrap a fresh perl installation, source a new profile, install a CPAN, then prompt the user to re-run the build under the newly installed perl. It solved several problems with regards to the Module::Build issues, but had the downside of taking a long time to setup from scratch. On the plus side, to upgrade to a new module, all I had to do was update the version in the xml file, and run 'build --module module_name'. No modules to download and add to the source repository.

Here's a snippet of the build config file:

<cpan> <module name="Apache2::AuthCookie" path="M/MS/MSCHOUT/" version="3 +.08"/> <module name="CGI" path="L/LD/LDS/" version="3.08"/> <module name="BerkeleyDB" path="P/PM/PMQS/" version="0.26"/> </cpan>
