It would be even more handy if it could tell me the order in which I needed to install the missing dependencies
That would be handy, agreed, but usually when using cpan
(not sure about cpanm
, never used it), the dependencies are automatically installed for you. That's handy, until one distribution in the chain of many decides to fail on a test or make, in which case you get to start over again(for the most part).
I don't think I can do it with just CPANDeps' XML, I would likely have to poll many sources to get that information.
