No, but you can make the upgrade process a lot easier assuming you're crossing
a major version boundary.
1) Run "autobundle" in the CPAN shell. This will make a big file of all the
modules you have installed. Note the location.
2) Install a new perl by hand.
3) Run "install /path/to/the/bundle/file" and it will reinstall all those
modules. Takes some time, but at least it's automatic.
Robrt: People can't win
Schwern: No, but they can riot after the game.
