Unable to install a particular CPAN module using CPAN
It appears that fp was not indexed by PAUSE because it is owned by KARASIK and not STEVAN.
A grep of the 02packages.details.txt.gz file shows the following:
fp::functionals 0.02 S/ST/STEVAN/fp-0.03.tar.gz
fp::lambda 0.01 S/ST/STEVAN/fp-0.03.tar.gz
fp::lambda::utils 0.01 S/ST/STEVAN/fp-0.03.tar.gz
Installing fp::functionals should do the trick, except that it fails tests for me. You'll have to force install it.
