I wondered if there is a perferred way to handle aquiring perl
The CPAN interface shell that gets installed with perl provides a
nifty way to search, download, install most of what is on CPAN and
can be enhanced with WAIT (a WAIS based search interface)
All this is pretty easy to use and takes care of some of the work of
finding and applying perl modules and packages.
Seems like this would interfere to some extent with apt-get concepts of
how to do things.
Whats the normal way to handle this?
The recommended way, I think, is to use dh-make-perl. It can
both download packages from cpan and build them as .debs that
fit into the debian system.
