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, a plugin for the first WAIT based CPAN search engine.
When CPAN installs this bundle it tries immediately to enable Term::ReadLine so that you do not need to restart your CPAN session.
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 expect that it gives less problems on portability.
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 using CPAN.pm more fun.
