He also plans to extend this to work with other disclosure files, including dwsync.xml files created by Dreamweaver and possibly some of the code repository files, cvs, svn, git etc.


To run the app you need to install the CPAN module, you can do this by becoming root, entering the CPAN shell then asking it to do the install:
