[Catalyst] how to get started?

Hi burninbruce, setting up CPAN to follow prequisites and install them
automatically might make it easier.

# perl -MCPAN -e shell

If it's the first time, it will ask a load of setup questions, choose to
follow prerequisites.

Otherwise you can set it on with

cpan> o conf prerequisites_policy follow
cpan> q

Then try reinstalling

Regards, Peter

Subject: [Catalyst] how to get started?

I'm a programmer with many years experience with perl and some
with CGI scripts but little with CPAN and none with web app

I've been trying for days to install Catalyst and haven't gotten
far.  I've tried both "perl -MCPAN 'install Task::Catalyst'" and
cat-install and they both fail with many errors in various
prerequisite modules.  I've tried this on Sun Solaris, NetBSD,
and Cygwin, and they fail in similar ways on all three.
