CPANPLUS::Shell::Curses - A Curses based shell for CPANPLUS
CPANPLUS::Shell::Curses is a graphical user interface to the newly developed CPANPLUS package
Usually all operations will be performed on the currently selected and/or marked Module. Searching is done as incremental search, so first author then module gives you other results than first module than author. Reset searching/display with j.
For installing and updating the Shell leaves Curses mode. At the moment this is considered a feature, in order to answer module's questions about configuration.
