CPANINJECT(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	 CPANINJECT(1)

NAME
       cpaninject - Inject a distribution for installation via the CPAN	shell

SYNOPSIS
	 # Add the distribution
	 cpaninject myperlmodule.tar.gz

	 # And then install it from the	cpan shell
	 cpan> install LOCAL/myperlmodule.tar.gz

DESCRIPTION
       cpaninject is a small front-end application for the CPAN::Inject
       module.

       It takes	any arbitrary Perl distribution	tarball	(open source or
       otherwise) and injects it into the local	CPAN file cache, smoothing
       some metadata files to make it look as if it came from CPAN.

       It makes	use the	officially blessed "Reserved Local CPAN	Author"	id
       "LOCAL" as the author the distributions are added under.

       To use the program, just	run cpaninject mytarball.tar.gz	to add it,
       then the	CPAN shell to install it (with full automatic recursive
       dependency installation).

       The key here being the recursive	dependency installation, which you are
       now able	to do even for installing non-CPAN modules.

       This simplifies the installation	process	a little, and makes things
       easier on someone that just wants to install a single commercial	or
       non-CPAN	Perl module that might have a dozen or more CPAN dependencies.

SUPPORT
       All bugs	should be filed	via the	bug tracker at

       <http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=CPAN-Inject>

       For other issues, or commercial enhancement and support,	contact	the
       author
