Bundle::CPAN - A bundle to play with all the other modules on CPAN
perl -MCPAN -e 'install Bundle::CPAN'
Term::ReadLine::Perl # sorry, I'm discriminating the ::Gnu module
This bundle includes CPAN.pm as the base module and CPAN::WAIT, the first plugin for CPAN that was developed even before there was an API.
After installing this bundle, it is recommended to quit the current session and start again in a new process to enable Term::ReadLine. If you have Term::ReadLine already, it should not be necessary to quit and restart as all other packages are recognized at runtime and will immediately be used.
Compress::Zlib needs as a prerequisite the zlib library. Currently (January 1998) this library is not shipped with the Compress::Zlib distribution.
In this bundle Term::ReadLine::Perl is preferred over Term::ReadLine::Gnu because I have not come around to study the differences between the two.
Note that all modules in this Bundle are not strict prerequisites to get a working CPAN.pm. CPAN.pm can work quite well without the other modules (except for Net::FTP which is really highly recommended). The other modules are just goodies that make a smooth operation of CPAN.pm more likely.
