in thread How to prevent CPAN from updating Perl

Thank you merlin. I tried that, but installing the new 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. :)

[marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
[Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
[Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
[marioroy]: Just documentation edits is all that remains. Hobo::Simple provides foreach and forseq with identifier capability -- all transparently supporting array, hash, file handle, and seq 1 .. N.
[marioroy]: Corion Regarding PID, that's great. So will leave it so compatible with MCE::Hobo. e.g. ->create returns a Hobo object. Folks can get ->pid from it. So, that's not a problem.
[choroba]: ad readdir: 5.12 needed
[marioroy]: CORE::wait can block if another process reaps a worker from another class. MCE::Hobo takes care of that and transparently.
[Discipulus]: thanks choroba i'll update my answer
[Lady_Aleena]: Hello Discipulus, Corion, choroba, and marioroy...
