Subject: Can't install via CPAN shell
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 528b
Since Weather::Com doesn't contain a Weather/ file (only Weather/Com.pod), the CPAN indexer won't add a Weather::Com entry to the package list file, which results in $ perl -MCPAN -eshell Show quoted text
cpan> install Weather::Com
... Warning: Cannot install Weather::Com, don't know what it is. Try the command i /Weather::Com/ to find objects with matching identifiers. when you try to install it with a CPAN shell. If you add Weather/ with some dummy content, I bet the problem will be fixed.
Hi, will try to fix this asap (this weekend). Cheers, Thomas

Weather-Com-0.5.3 has just entered PAUSE server and should be available on CPAN shortly. As suggested, I've made a dummy package "Weather/". Apart from the minimum dummy content, the tutorial went from "Weather/Com.pod" to this file. So there is no longer a "Weather/Com.pod" as this is not needed. I hope, this fixes the installation issue. Cheers, Thomas
