( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I use Debian/testing aka squeeze and I've got ~300 non-Debian CPAN packages installed, all as .deb's using dh-make-perl. FWIW my workflow{1} is:
  1. cd <<cpanplus build directory>>
  2. cpanp t Module::To::Install download & test the module and all dependencies
  3. dh-make-perl --version <<module-version>>-0.0 --build <<directory>> for each directory created by cpanp. (Some fail, and some succeed.)
  4. su -c 'dpkg -i *.deb' Install those that succeeded
  5. Repeat 3 & 4 until all the modules are installed
It's a long way from being perfect, but it works for me.

{1} Scripted, of course:

#!/usr/bin/perl use 5.010; use strict; use warnings FATAL => 'all'; run(); sub run { fetch_and_test($_) for @ARGV; for my $dir (grep -d, glob "*") { system qw[rm -rf], "$dir/debian" if -e "$dir/debian"; my ($module, $ver) = $dir =~ m/(.*)-(.*)/; my $deb = lc "lib$module-perl"; system(qw/dh-make-perl --version/, "$ver-0.0", "--build", $dir +) == 0 and system qw/rm -rf/, $dir; #created a deb } } sub fetch_and_test { my $module = shift; system qw[ cpanp s conf prereqs 1; ], "t", $module; }

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
