    Here is a 1 minute review of your project perlmod.
    • reusing perlmod name
    • no requirements list,
    • no Makefile.PL
    • no pod
    • no strict,
    • no test suite
    • hand parsing of switches
    • raw shell escapes
    • code like
      if($install_module ne ""){ &installModule($install_module); return 0; }
    • no support for Module::Build
    • not an improvement over cpan or cpanp
    • no user base
    • single developer
    • marketing alpha quality code in a tutorial thread as 1st post
    I hope you have enjoyed writing this program, but no thanks, sorry.
