( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
To be honest, i would not want that kind of behavior. I, and only i am to decide if a new package is installed on my machine.
Using a good documentation along with your program, and anyone familiar using cpan should be able to deal with it.
Why?
If only by the fact that i rather use the deb / rpm packages (if they exist) in the standard linux distribution i use, than a self compiled one.
All system upgrades take care of new packages as well then for me.
Don't mess with auto installation.
For perl-only packages, well, just put them in your program library.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
