Module::CPANfile is a tool to handle cpanfile format to load application
specific dependencies, not just for CPAN distributions.
`cpanfile` describes CPAN dependencies required to execute associated Perl
Place the `cpanfile` in the root of the directory containing the associated
code. For instance, in a Catalyst application, place the `cpanfile` in the
same directory as `myapp.conf`.
Tools supporting `cpanfile` format (e.g. cpanm and carton) will automatically
detect the file and install dependencies for the code to run.
