Howto: Install local dist file using the cpan shell

[ #35764 ]

Gaah. I forgot it. Again.

When you have a downloaded tar ball of a CPAN package, but want to use the properly configured cpan shell to install it (and get dependencies nicely resolved):

  • Unpack the tar ball
  • cd into the dir
  • cpan .
  • Coffee time!
