The following emerged after a discussion on #perlmonks after Petruchio, boo_radley and I were playing with the idea of a Perl Monks MUD.

The really cool part about this is that it's actually quite feasible. All we need is some extra XML feeds into PM and a Perl Monks MUD/CLI is possible. Needless to say, we're looking into it.

Welcome to Perl Monks MUD, version 1.0 [Anonymous Monk]> login ar0n p455w0rd You're logged in now.

You notice the cup is empty +. > donate $100 You take out your wallet and discover that you only have 3 dollars. > donate $3.00 You put 3 dollars into the cup. > listen You hear a bird chirping. The wind is blowing through the trees and th +ey make a nice soothing sound. You close your eyes to focus on the sound +for a few moments when in the distance you hear some muffled voices.

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
