cpan-upload (2.2) *****

This is not a module, it's a script.

After going through most of my modules on CPAN to make sure that
they will work on the soon to be Perl 5.8.1, I again realized that the
low profile, but very handy cpan-upload utility script is a must-have
for a module author.

What does it do? Well, not a lot, but it does it quickly and quietly. It
uploads your files to CPAN as simple as:

cpan-upload Your-Module-1.07.tar.gz

You get your confirmation mails just the way as you would normally
if you would upload files to CPAN "manually".

What do you need to do? Well, download it, then:

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install

then, in you home directory, create a file named ".pause" that you
can only read and write to (-rw------), and put your configuration
information in there. This is usually very simple, such as:

user CPANID

password xyuolskhj

mailto your@address.tld

and voila, you're set!

Neil Bowers has made a very nice utility script that is well
documented. Kudo's to Neil!
