Installing WWW::Blog::Metadata

If you think you can just install the CPAN Perl module WWW::Blog::Metadata (v.0.02) by typing perl -MCPAN -e 'install WWW::Blog::Metadata' you would be wrong. Here is a quick tutorial to install the module in spite of all obstacles:

  • Install HTML::Tagset by hand, since the dependencies to this module are not well defined somewhere.
  • Try to install WWW::Blog::Metadata, it will fail because a test is buggy. Then, go to ~/.cpan/build/WWW-Blog-Metadata-0.02/t and edit the file ’01-extract.t’ on line 31: Change the ‘2’ to a ‘3’ at the end of the line.
  • Install WWW::Blog::Metadata again.

Perl sucks.
