Re^2: CPAN and readline on windows

in thread CPAN and readline on windows

Thinking about it, it probably makes more sense to set $CPAN::Suppress_readline=1; in CPAN.bat, rather than modifying CPAN.pm?

Do you still want an RT ticket for that?

      Okay, thanks.

      The reason I think that applying the disable in CPAN.BAT is good idea is that (I assume) people using *nix emulators (Cygwin Strawberry etc.) where they would need the ReadLine support, will probably not invoke cpan via a .BAT file?

        Depends what comes first in the PATH. {grin}

        I find that the minimal readline support on Windows is useful enough that having it on doesn't bother me too much.
