Essentially, yes. Just run CPAN (perl -MCPAN -e shell) and type
"install Foo::Bar" just as you would on any unix system. You don't have
to actually know or care about tarballs, CPAN does all that for you.
One caveat. If you are behind a proxy server that requires
authentication, ActiveState's PPM install tools are much easier to get
reliably working than the various command-line tools that CPAN uses
(wget, lynx, ncftp, Net::FTP, etc).
