in reply to Installing Perl Modules

My personal preference is to create a distribution for the reusable modules at a company. I have had good luck with the module-starter tool, which is provided by Module::Starter.

For example:

module-starter --email "thil@something.com" --author "Thil" --module " +Foo::Bar"
This creates a Foo-Bar directory with the following structure:
Foo-Bar/
|-- Changes
|-- MANIFEST
|-- Makefile.PL
|-- README
|-- lib
|   `-- Foo
|       `-- Bar.pm
`-- t
    |-- 00-load.t
    |-- boilerplate.t
    |-- pod-coverage.t
    `-- pod.t
The Makefile.PL is generated as follows:
use strict; use warnings; use ExtUtils::MakeMaker; WriteMakefile( NAME => 'Foo::Bar', AUTHOR => 'Thil <thil@something.com>', VERSION_FROM => 'lib/Foo/Bar.pm', ABSTRACT_FROM => 'lib/Foo/Bar.pm', PL_FILES => {}, PREREQ_PM => { 'Test::More' => 0, }, dist => { COMPRESS => 'gzip -9f', SUFFIX => 'gz', } +, clean => { FILES => 'Foo-Bar-*' }, );
Once you add the modules to your lib/ tree you can make a distribution tarball very easily. After that is done you could add these modules to a local CPAN server and use CPAN, or use the CPAN module's API to install locally.

Personally I use a shell script that I wrote awhile ago. I have a 90% rewritten perl version of the same, but I keep getting distracted.
