in thread Configuring Mac OS X to Install Perl Modules

In addition to everything I wrote above, I also needed to run install Test::Exception

So the final, full list of everything I command I ran to install DateTime on my MacBook Pro OS X 10.5.8, that has never before used perl

  1. sudo CPAN (press enter lots of times to config)
  2. install Params::Validate
  3. install DateTime::Locale
  4. install DateTime::TimeZone
  5. install Test::Exception
  6. install Test::Warn
  7. install DateTime::Format::ICal
  8. and FINALLY:

  9. install DateTime

Sadly, I have no idea what I just did. All I know is it worked for me and I moved on to successfully finish setting up bugzilla.

I hope this helps someone else out there (the way the posts in this thread lead me to figure this thing out)

    I just wanted to say thanks, and also to let others know that almost 3 years later, this worked perfectly for me on Snow Leopard.

    I also needed to install Test::More. Otherwise I got some nonsense about "You tried to run a test without a plan".

    Had to do Install Module::Runtime before everything else.
