Ho ho ho, this is too cool: >>build a rpm for CPAN modules right from a web page.

The web page doesn't always work, pity.

Might be nicer if it let you download the tool directly, but as of today it is complaining that anonymous access to the ftp server is not permitted. However after some messing around, I found the >>cpan2rpm script available through http.

The script will download the module and then make the required RPM for it.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
