DESCRIPTION ^

This is a CPANPLUS::Shell::Default plugin that can add custom sources to your CPANPLUS installation. This is a wrapper around the custom module sources code as outlined in "CUSTOM MODULE SOURCES" in CPANPLUS::Backend.

This allows you to extend your index of available modules beyond what's available on CPAN with your own local distributions, or ones offered by third parties.
