 +==== Living with CPAN ====
 +Good tips on using CPAN: http://sial.org/howto/perl/life-with-cpan/
 +
 +You can reconfigure CPAN completely by using 'o conf init' at the cpan
 +prompt. Or you can configure a single option with o conf followed by the
 +option and the values you want to set. Then use 'o conf commit' to save
 +the changes permenantly. Entering just 'o conf' will show the current
 +settings

 +
 +=== cpan2rpm ===
 +Installing through CPAN is dangerous because it doesn't have an uninstall command and modules you install are not registered in a package manager (and therefore can only be removed manually).  Use ''cpan2rpm'' to create RPMs from CPAN modules: http://perl.arix.com/cpan2rpm/

 +  * Install:
 +<code># rpm -Uvh ~alan/cpan2rpm-2.028-1.noarch.rpm</code>
