=head1 INSTALL To install this module do the following: =head2 LINUX, UNIX etc. Untar the package: tar -xzf Graph-Easy-As_svg-0.13.tar.gz (Replace 0.13 with the actual version you got) Change into the directory: chdir Graph-Easy-As_svg-0.13/ Then you need to check the signature on the package to verify that it is untampered and intact. To do this you have to: =over 2 =item * Install the Perl module Module::Signature from http://search.cpan.org =item * Get my key from http://bloodgate.com/tels.asc, import it into GnuPG with: gpg --import tels.asc You may also let the C<cpansign> utility fetch it automatically from a keyserver, if that works for you. =item * Type on a console: cpansign --verify inside the unpacked directory. =back If the last step says "good signature" or "SIGNATURE VERIFIED OK", everything is all right. Note that if C<cpansign> let GnuPG download my key from a keyserver, it might put a C<tels.asc> file in the package directory, and then afterward complain that "tels.asc" is not in the MANIFEST: Not in MANIFEST: tels.asc ==> MISMATCHED content between MANIFEST and distribution files! <== You can safely ignore this warning. B<NOTE:> Please notify me immidiately if the signature does not verify. In that case do B<NOT> install this software, your system might get compromised! When the package verified okay, then proceed: perl Makefile.PL If you get warnings about missing or outdated modules, then upgrade/install these first. Then run the testsuite: make test If all tests pass, install the package: sudo make install =head2 WINDOWS When the package verified okay (see above), then proceed: You need the "nmake" utility from Microsoft: http://johnbokma.com/perl/make-for-windows.html =head3 nmake Then you can build the Makefile and finally run the tests and install this package: perl Makefile.PL nmake test If all tests pass, install the package: nmake install AUTHOR ====== Copyright (C) 2004 - 2008 by Tels http://bloodgate.com/perl/ This library is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms of the GPL version 2.
