NAME

PerlPowerTools - BSD utilities written in pure Perl

SYNOPSIS

Install the commands and use them just as you would the normal BSD utilities.

DESCRIPTION

The Unix Reconstruction Project. By default, these install into the ~/perlpowertools directory. You'll probably need to add that directory to PATH to use them. You can install them anywhere you like by setting INSTALL_BASE when you run Makefile.PL.
