  • I've been using Debian for quite a few years now and I've reached the position where I really don't like to install anything onto a machine that's not Debian packaged - if nothing else, it makes it easy to remove stuff :-)

    To build a Debian package from a CPAN distribution, just do something like this:

    dh-make-perl --build --cpan JSON::XS

    This will download the latest tarball from CPAN, unpack it, throw together a skeleton 'debian' directory, and then build the .deb package using the normal CPAN make; m
