Part of me wanted to keep the order with the "traditional recipe" first, because that's the order presented in the original A Guide to Installing Modules. But since I agree that using cpan or alternative clients is preferred, I followed your advice and changed the order.

For the cpan configuration and usage suggestions: are those really Win32-useful enough that they belong here? Or are they just generically useful? Do others think that this tutorial should include that suggested extra detail about the CPAN shell? or even more than that? What about extra hints for the other clients?

Wiki syntax: I often forget to put that space after the end-single-quote. I had actually noticed that on another instance, and thought I had converted all of my wiki syntax to plain Perl Monks Approved HTML tags, but I missed those. Thanks

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
