USAGE - Modules installation

  • Install a module via CPAN Minus

      include ::perl # You need the perl main class to be already evaluated         perl::module { 'Path::Class': }
    
  • Install a module via CPAN command

      include ::perl
      perl::cpan::module { 'Path::Class': }
    
  • Remove a module previously installed via CPAN Minus

      perl::module { 'Path::Class':
        ensure => absent,
      }
    
  • Install a module using the OS packages

      perl::module { 'YAML::Perl':
        use_package => true,
      }
    

Note that the prefix name of the package (perl-) is automatically added and the :: are converted to -. The actual package installed in this case is therefore: perl-YAML-Perl

        url => 'http://repo.example42.com/perl/my-module.tgz',

      }
    

USAGE - Basic management
