This is not a module, it's a script.

After going through most of my modules on CPAN to make sure that they will work on the soon to be Perl 5.8.1, I again realized that the low profile, but very handy cpan-upload utility script is a must-have for a module author.

What does it do? Well, not a lot, but it does it quickly and quietly. It uploads your files to CPAN as simple as:

    cpan-upload Your-Module-1.07.tar.gz
You get your confirmation mails just the way as you would normally if you would upload files to CPAN "manually".

What do you need to do? Well, download it, then:

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
then, in you home directory, create a file named ".pause" that you can only read and write to (-rw------), and put your configuration information in there. This is usually very simple, such as:
user CPANID
password xyuolskhj
mailto your@address.tld
and voila, you're set!

Neil Bowers has made a very nice utility script that is well documented. Kudo's to Neil!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
