Upgrade Perl modules using cpan autobundle

It’s become bi weekly task to keep updated your Perl distro.

To achieve it I use following commands

perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> autobundle

Above command will generate a snapshot pm file. This file will include list of modules require upgrade.


You can recheck the file and list of module with respective version. You have a facility to remove any of unwanted packages to your distro.

Once done the modification of the file you save it.

Now run below command

cpan> install Bundle::Snapshot_2012_05_01_01

This command will take care of installation of all these module incorporated in Snapshot_2012_05_01_00 file.

Bingo thats all! WeW
