      $ perldoc cpan |ack "[-][fiT]" -f Force the specified action, when it normally would have failed +. Use option, -i is not optional for installing a module when you ne +ed to % cpan -f -i Module::Foo -i Install the specified modules. -T Do not test modules. Simply install them. # install modules ( sole -i is optional ) cpan -i Netscape::Booksmarks Business::ISBN # force install modules ( must use -i ) cpan -fi CGI::Minimal URI Japheth Cleaver added the bits to allow a forced install (-f).
