Searching on CPAN it seems the console program and the Perl module are in the same package: http://search.cpan.org/~shancock/Perl-Tidy-20031021/ and so is in Gentoo: dev-perl/perltidy has it all.

Yep, the naming of module packages is a bit of a problem in circumstances like this. By the way, how is this resolved in situations such as LWP vs libwww-perl? Michele. -- Michele Beltrame http://www.massainforme.it/mb/ ICQ# 76660101 -- gentoo-perl@g.o mailing list
