Perl Module Manager streamlines the installation, uninstallation, and management of Perl modules from CPAN and other sources with its easy-to-use interface. It automatically launches the internal nmake utility and updates the Perllocal.pod file.
With Perl Module Manager, you can search through thousands of useful modules and libraries on the CPAN site and its mirrors. You can easily download and install the modules of your choice with just a few clicks.
The best part is that Perl Module Manager automatically launches the internal nmake util and makes necessary changes in the Perllocal.pod file. This file contains a list of locally-installed modules not included with the standard distribution.
If you download and install Perl and then install several CPAN modules, only the CPAN modules will be listed in Perllocal. This file is updated during the "make install" process by code in ExtUtils::MakeMaker. Stuff is added to Perllocal when you install modules via 'make install' due to stuff in ExtUtils::MakeMaker.
Perl Module Manager ensures that all the necessary changes are made in the Perllocal.pod file during the installation or un-installation processes. This makes it incredibly easy to manage your Perl modules and keep track of the changes.
One of the best things about Perl Module Manager is that it is compatible with the ActiveState Perl Distribution. It is also completely free and will always remain as such. Overall, if you are a Perl programmer looking for an efficient and easy-to-use module manager, Perl Module Manager is definitely worth checking out.
