  • Since there are only developer releases available, the usual cpan maneuvers don't work. The working incantation is:

    cpan SEANO/Sepia-0.95_03.tar.gz
    Then the elisp files can be found in the .cpan directory, but I found it easier to just wget them into my elisp directory from the list in the MANIFEST [cpan.org] file.
    • Ugh, sorry about that. I just uploaded a version 0.96 that's identical to 0.95_03, but should avoid the cpan hassle. Unfortunately I can't think of a good platform-independent way to install the elisp files and HTML documentation, so people still need to do that by hand.
      • In PerlySense, I install the .el files next to the .pm files, then load the elisp in .emacs [cpan.org]by asking a Perl script where the .el files are.
        • Thanks. That may be the best option, but it's sort of unsatisfying (more so when I install the info pages). Another option might be to prompt (with defaults) for the various paths in Makefile.PL.

          It's amazing that software as old as Emacs doesn't have some automatic way to install packages.
