cpanm – the easier way to install Perl modules

Perl is shipped with the cpan console to install new modules. This console is quite dated and sometimes asks too many questions when you just want to install a module. CPANM is a less talkative version of the old cpan. 

Just install it on your Linux Mint / Ubuntu / Debian machine

And then you can use it like cpan. E.g. installing the DBI module

This is the result

20 years of coding and working as software engineer but I am still eager to learn more. I am very passionate when it comes to open source, Linux and Java. But I made my peace with Windows long ago to fully enjoy my PC gaming hobby. I have a soft spot for 90s electronic music and Babylon 5. In the evenings you will find me roaming the endless space in Warframe (IGN k05h).
