SYNOPSIS ^

    ### loading the shell:
    $ cpanp                     # run 'cpanp' from the command line
    $ perl -MCPANPLUS -eshell   # load the shell from the command line


    use CPANPLUS::Shell qw[Default];        # load this shell via the API
                                            # always done via CPANPLUS::Shell

    my $ui = CPANPLUS::Shell->new;
    $ui->shell;                             # run the shell
    $ui->dispatch_on_input( input => 'x');  # update the source using the
                                            # dispatch method

    ### when in the shell:
    ### Note that all commands can also take options.
    ### Look at their underlying CPANPLUS::Backend methods to see
    ### what options those are.
