in thread how to re-run Makefile.PL under CPAN?

I'm not really sure what do you mean. Is look the look(1), "display lines beginning with a given string" one ?

When I myself am installing modules, surely I can myself run Makefile.PL as much as I want, but I'm talking about automated builds, when 3rd person is installing module X and getting it installed wrong, or CPAN testers reporting failures.

    Within the CPAN shell "look" will extract the archive and give you a shell prompt. For example:

    cpan> look Test::Exception Running look for module Test::Exception Trying to open a subshell in the build directory... Working directory is /Users/adrianh/.cpan/build/Test-Exception-0.25 (1/501) ~/.cpan/build/Test-Exception-0.25 mitchum% ls Build.PL Changes MANIFEST META.yml Makefi +le.PL README lib t
