This is the distribution of the Perl module "Shell::Tools".

It is a Perl extension to reduce boilerplate in Perl shell scripts.

Please see the module's documentation (POD) for details
(try the command "perldoc lib/Shell/")
and the file "Changes" for version information.


To install this module type the following:

  perl Makefile.PL
  make test
  make install

If you are running Windows, you may need to use "dmake" or "nmake"
instead of "make".


Requirements: Perl v5.8 or higher (a more current version is strongly
recommended) and several of its core modules; users of Perl before v5.10
may need to upgrade a few core modules. There are several additional
recommended modules that can be installed from CPAN. The full list of
modules and their versions can be found in the file "Makefile.PL".
This module should work on any platform supported by these modules.
