       cpaninject - Inject a distribution for installation via the CPAN shell


         # Add the distribution
         cpaninject myperlmodule.tar.gz

         # And then install it from the cpan shell
         cpan> install LOCAL/myperlmodule.tar.gz


       cpaninject is a small front-end application for the CPAN::Inject module.

       It takes any arbitrary Perl distribution tarball (open source or otherwise) and injects it
       into the local CPAN file cache, smoothing some metadata files to make it look as if it
       came from CPAN.

       It makes use the officially blessed "Reserved Local CPAN Author" id "LOCAL" as the author
       the distributions are added under.

       To use the program, just run cpaninject mytarball.tar.gz to add it, then the CPAN shell to
       install it (with full automatic recursive dependency installation).

       The key here being the recursive dependency installation, which you are now able to do
       even for installing non-CPAN modules.

       This simplifies the installation process a little, and makes things easier on someone that
       just wants to install a single commercial or non-CPAN Perl module that might have a dozen
       or more CPAN dependencies.
