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. -- Nathan Norman - Incanus Networking mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org For the next hour, WE will control all that you see and hear.
