mascip has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi all, I did

cpan> install Method::Signatures
It didn't work, because of a dependency not installing on Windows. That's fixed in the developer release, and that's why i want that release.

Then i did something stupid : i deleted the mod:://Method-Signatures directories that i had in C:/strawberry/cpan/source/ and C:/strawberry/cpan/build/
(you don't need to know why i did this stupid thing, to help me fix it)

And now when i try

cpan> install Method::Signatures
it says :
Running install for module 'Method::Signatures' Running Build for B/BA/BAREFOOT/Method-Signatures-20120523.tar.gz Has already been unwrapped into directory C:\strawberry\cpan\build\M +ethod-Signatures-20120523-iX8R5D Could not make: Unknown error Running Build test Can't test without successful make Running Build install Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
=> it doesn't even try to install it anymore; apparently i broke something.
What shall i do ?

That is so stupid, sorry to take your time for this.

I guess, after fixing this problem i'll have to install this module manually; or to just wait until the developer version becomes the current version.
