CPANPLUS::Shell::Default::Plugins::Source - read in CPANPLUS commands

CPAN Terminal> /source /tmp/list_of_commands /tmp/more_commands

This is a "CPANPLUS::Shell::Default" plugin that works just like your unix shells source(1) command; it reads in a file that has commands in it to execute, and then executes them.

A sample file might look like this:

# first, update all the source files
x --update_source
# find all of my modules that are on the CPAN
# test them, and store the error log
a ^KANE$'
t *
p /home/kane/cpan-autotest/log
# and inform us we're good to go
! print "Autotest complete, log stored; please enter your commands!"

Note how empty lines, and lines starting with a '#' are being skipped in the execution.

Please report bugs or other issues to <<gt>.
