This notebook will build you a Galaxy tool_dependencies.xml file for Perl packages.

Insert you package name into cell 1 and cell 4. A typical package name looks like 'HTTP::Client'.

In [1]:
perl_package_name = 'HTTP::Client'
toolshed_package_name = 'perl_http_client'
toolshed_package_version = '1.57'
In [2]:
!cpanm CPAN::FindDependencies
!
! Can't write to /usr/local/share/perl/5.20.1 and /usr/local/bin: Installing modules to /home/bag/perl5
! To turn off this warning, you have to do one of the following:
!   - run me as a root or with --sudo option (to install to /usr/local/share/perl/5.20.1 and /usr/local/bin)
!   - Configure local::lib your existing local::lib in this shell to set PERL_MM_OPT etc.
!   - Install local::lib by running the following commands
!
!         cpanm --local-lib=~/perl5 local::lib && eval $(perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5/ -Mlocal::lib)
!
CPAN::FindDependencies is up to date. (2.42)
