 Description: Create debian packages from perl modules
  dh-make-perl will create the files required to build
  a debian source package out of a perl package.
  This works for most simple packages and is also useful
  for getting started with packaging perl modules.
  Given a perl package name, it can also automatically download it from CPAN.
