Description : Perl module to simplify typical installation tasks for system administrators
Have you ever wished for your installation shell scripts to run
reproducably, without much programming fuzz, and even with optional
logging enabled? Then give up shell programming, use Perl.
Sysadm::Install executes shell-like commands performing typical
installation tasks: Copying files, extracting tarballs, calling make. It
has a fail once and die policy, meticulously checking the result of
every operation and calling die() immeditatly if anything fails.
Sysadm::Install also supports a dry_run mode, in which it logs
everything, but suppresses any write actions.
Sysadm::Install is fully Log4perl-enabled. To start logging, just
initialize Log::Log4perl. Sysadm::Install acts as a wrapper class,
meaning that file names and line numbers are reported from the calling
program's point of view.
