in thread How to prevent CPAN from updating Perl

Thank you merlin. I tried that, but installing the new CPAN.pm also tried to install the new perl. Does this mean I'll have to do that by hand?

    Try hitting Ctrl-c when it begins to download the new perl. You might get an error message or two, but it should continue on with the module install (w/o upgrading perl itself).

      I know this thread was some time ago, but that didn't work for me... no matter how I tried, it either caught the SIGINT or terminated CPAN altogether. However, instead of doing install Bundle::CPAN, it worked to just do install CPAN, then reload CPAN (this is from within the shell). Then I could install the whole Bundle::CPAN without the default installing perl thingy. I will however upgrade perl later, but I thought it could wait a few days since I have v5.6.0.

      Just thought I'd post this in case someone else has the same problem as me. :)
