README file for HTML::Timeline.

See also: Changes.txt.

Warning: WinZip 8.1 and 9.0 both contain an 'accidental' bug which stops
them recognizing POSIX-style directory structures in valid tar files.
You are better off using a reliable tool such as InfoZip:
ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/

1 Installing from a Unix-like distro
------------------------------------
shell>gunzip HTML-Timeline-1.00-1.00.tgz
shell>tar mxvf HTML-Timeline-1.00-1.00.tar

On Unix-like systems, assuming you have installed Module::Build V 0.25+:

shell>perl Build.PL
shell>./Build
shell>./Build test
shell>./Build install

On MS Windows-like systems, assuming you have installed Module::Build V 0.25+:

shell>perl Build.PL
shell>perl Build
shell>perl Build test
shell>perl Build install

Alternately, without Module::Build, you do this:

Note: 'make' on MS Windows-like systems may be called 'nmake' or 'dmake'.

shell>perl Makefile.PL
shell>make
shell>make test
shell>su              (for Unix-like systems)
shell>make install
shell>exit            (for Unix-like systems)

On all systems:

Run Config.pm through you favourite pod2html translator.

If you are using my fancy-pom2.pl, with its 'default.css' file installed in
/apache2/htdocs/css/, you'd do:

shell>perl fancy-pom2.pl html -css Config.pm > /apache2/htdocs/Config.html

or perhaps something like:

shell>perl fancy-pom2.pl html -css Config.pm > /perl/html/site/lib/HTML/Timeline.html

2 Installing from an ActiveState distro
---------------------------------------
shell>unzip HTML-Timeline-1.00-1.00.zip
shell>ppm install --location=. HTML-Timeline-1.00
shell>del HTML-Timeline-1.00-1.00.ppd
shell>del PPM-HTML-Timeline-1.00-1.00.tar.gz
