To install this module do the following:


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:

  • Install the Perl module Module::Signature from

  • Get my key from, import it into GnuPG with:

            gpg --import tels.asc

    You may also let the cpansign utility fetch it automatically from a keyserver, if that works for you.

  • Type on a console:

            cpansign --verify

    inside the unpacked directory.

If the last step says "good signature" or "SIGNATURE VERIFIED OK", everything is all right.

Note that if cpansign let GnuPG download my key from a keyserver, it might put a 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.

NOTE: Please notify me immidiately if the signature does not verify. In that case do 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If you get warnings about missing or outdated modules, then upgrade/install these first.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


When the package verified okay (see above), then proceed:

You need the "nmake" utility from Microsoft:


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
