in thread CPANP (CPAN Plus) failing?

Corion: indeed, that PC has two different installations of Perl.

So, should I go:

perl -MCPANPLUS::Configure::Setup -e 'CPANPLUS::Configure::Setup->init()'

like it says here?:

Many TIA - Helen

    I suggest you stick to using one Perl distribution to avoid confusion. Different distros have different modules packaged. Recently this problem. Note that both Strawberry Perl and DWIM perl have a C compiler. Consider thoroughly reading the docuemntation for modules before attempting to install them, or their prerequisites.

    I wouldn't know. I don't use cpanplus. But if their FAQ suggests it, I would investigate that way of solving things.

      For the benefit of PerlMonks users: I went (in cpanp):

      CPAN Terminal>s selfupdate enabled_features

      and it fixed the problem.

      Many thanks to Corion and marto for your help - Helen

        CPAN Terminal> s selfupdate enhanced_features To update your current CPANPLUS installation, choose one of the these +options: s selfupdate all [--latest=0] [--dryrun] s selfupdate core [--latest=0] [--dryrun] s selfupdate dependencies [--latest=0] [--dryrun] s selfupdate enabled_features [--latest=0] [--dryrun] s selfupdate features [--latest=0] [--dryrun]
