NAME
        CPAN::Admin - A CPAN Shell for CPAN admins

SYNOPSIS
        perl -MCPAN::Admin -e shell

STATUS
       Note: this module is currently not maintained. If you need it and fix it for your needs, please submit patches.

DESCRIPTION
       CPAN::Admin is a subclass of CPAN that adds the commands "register" and "modsearch" to the CPAN shell.

       "register" calls "get" on the named module, assembles a couple of informations (description, language), and
       calls Netscape with the -remote argument so that a form is filled with all the assembled informations and the
       registration can be performed with a single click. If the command line has more than one argument, register
       does not run a "get", instead it interprets the rest of the line as DSLI status, description, and userid and
       sends them to netscape such that the form is again mostly filled and can be edited or confirmed with a single
       click. CPAN::Admin never performs the submission click for you, it is only intended to fill in the form on
       PAUSE and leave the confirmation to you.

       "modsearch" simply passes the arguments to the search engine for the modulesATperl.org mailing list at
       http://www.xray.mpe.mpg.de where all registration requests are stored. It does so in the same way as register,
       namely with the "netscape -remote" command.

       An experimental feature has also been added, namely to color already registered modules in listings. If you
       have Term::ANSIColor installed, the u, r, and m commands will show already registered modules in green.

PREREQISITES
       URI::Escape, netscape browser available in the path, netscape must understand the -remote switch (as far as I
       know, this is only available on UNIX); coloring of registered modules is only available if Term::ANSIColor is
       installed.
