"Quite simply CPAN.pm takes care of those piddling details
which can make perl module installation so painful - it will find,
ftp, decompress, install and make any module you want, as well as
checking you also have any modules further up the chain of
inheritance, stopping runtime errors on scripts which are trying to
USE modules which themselves USE modules that you didn't know you
needed to install (Net::FTP is a good example of this fish
hook behaviour as it basically inherits from Net::cmd, and without
that you get nothing but a nice cascade display)."
