I think that it might be a little useful to have some variety of
one-liner repository in the CPAN script section, or perhaps elsewhere if
that makes more sense. These might be something like the following
=head1 Using CPAN.pm
perl -MCPAN -e shell
=head1 What does it do?
Launches the CPAN shell in order to install modules from CPAN
The -M switch loads a module. The syntax is -MI<modulename>, such as
-MCPAN to load C<CPAN.pm> or -MTime::JulianDay to load
The -e switch indicates that what follows on the command line is the
Perl code to be run. This is usually enclosed in single-quotes (double
quotes on Win32), but in this case, since it is just a single word, this
is not necessary.
This is just a thought that I had last night. I know that there are
several one-liner web sites around, but it might be nice to have such a
beast under CPAN. Perhaps have this as a subdir under Scripts, and have
it available as HTML and/or text and/or POD. Any thoughts on this?
