install whole CPAN ? - PERL Modules

When I was thinking about installing more CPAN modules, I was wondering - isn't there a way of getting *all* CPAN modules and of installing them in one big move? Maybe some CD-ISO archive file, and an autoinstaller (for Linux: Suse 10)? Anything like that?...

    This may not be a good idea, because there is no mechanism to prevent
    conflicts on module names. For example, the SOAP-Lite distribution
    contains a module called SOAP::Packager. But so does the SOAP
    distribution. Are they interchangeable? Don't bet on it.

    You can't, unless you have all third party products installed that some
    modules
    are written for to support: DBD-*** (Oracle, Unify, Ingres, Informix, ....)
    is
    maybe the best example

    Wow, you'll need a lot of disk space for your perl distro, then. And
    lots of patience before it's all over.

    Anyway, instead of *installing* it all, you could start by getting the
    most recent versions off CPAN and have your own CPAN mirror, on CD for
    example. Search for mini-CPAN.

    <http://www.google.com/search?q=mini-CPAN>

    That way, you can always (connected to the internet, or not) and likely
    more quickly, install any module you want.

    OTOH, it would make a great lightning talk. Sort of the Perl version of
    "Supersize Me" :-)
