For clarity (lack of coffee, sorry) I wasn't suggesting there was no value in this method, just that times have change and tools have moved on. It is worth mentioning. Given OPs history using someone else’s automated tool may be preferable (easier?) than doing things manually and getting things wrong. For the record, I know of some people with vast Perl knowledge who don't touch cpan/cpanm and alike, preferring to do things manually. However, they know exactly what they're doing and how to fix things should they not go to plan.
Update: terrible typo.
