Subject: Doesn't seem to be possible to "install a script"
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 576b
I was just reading about PETDANCE's app script, and thought I'd give it a go. I fired up the cpan shell and typed Show quoted text
cpan>install ack
And was told "Don't be silly, you can't install daniel bosold ;-)" Which was an entertaining error message, but didn't help me. I realised there would like be some modules in the ack distribution, and I could look them up on search.cpan.org, and install one of those. But I figured there must be a way to say "I want to install a script called 'ack'". Well, if there is, I couldn't find it :-) So I ended up doing an install on App::Ack
