Installing EUtils perl module

In my recent post on Using R to graph a subject trend in PubMed I used the EUtils Perl module. There are detailed general instructions on how to install Perl module here for all major OS. What I did on my Mac is that.
I downloaded the archive from http://bioinformatics.tgen.org/brunit/downloads/tgen-eutils/ and ran those commands.
tar -xzf TGen-EUtils-0.13.tar.gz
cd TGen-EUtils-0.13
## instruction are in the INSTALL file
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
sudo make install
And that's it folks.
