Perl Installation Program
The pip “Perl Installation Program” console application is used to install Perl distributions in a wide variety of formats, both from CPAN and from external third-party locations, while supporting module dependencies that go across the boundary from third-party to CPAN.
Using pip you can install CPAN modules, arbitrary tarballs from both the local file-system or across the internet from arbitrary URIs.
You can use pip to ensure that specific versions of CPAN modules are installed instead of the most current version.
