CPANPLUS::Shell::Default::Plugins::Source - read in CPANPLUS commands


    CPAN Terminal> /source /tmp/list_of_commands /tmp/more_commands


This is a "CPANPLUS::Shell::Default" plugin that works just like your unix shells source(1) command; it reads in a file that has commands in it to execute, and then executes them.
A sample file might look like this:
    # first, update all the source files
    x --update_source
    # find all of my modules that are on the CPAN
    # test them, and store the error log
    a ^KANE$'
    t *
    p /home/kane/cpan-autotest/log
    # and inform us we're good to go
    ! print "Autotest complete, log stored; please enter your commands!"
Note how empty lines, and lines starting with a '#' are being skipped in the execution.


Please report bugs or other issues to <<gt>.
