in thread PPM/CPAN connection issues

I tried the CPAN shell after PPM gave me the issue. I just thought the errors from CPAN were more helpful to post here...

I will try the .ppd idea. I downloaded the .ppd I want, along with the corresponding .gz file.

Update: This solution worked! Many thanks! (I ended up in a wormhole of dependency installations, but after 7 or so were fixed using the .ppd install method...) I got the module I wanted installed and a simple test works!

    Hi, I have exactly the same problem with the same libraries (File::Slurp & JSON:XS to install) I tried by ppm first then cpan with the same errors I've download the .ppd file on "" Could you describe what you've done for the installation? Command lines and dependencies to install?

stevieb is writing a little CUFP on how to control analog pins on an arduino from a Linux machine via I2C in light of Perl, JavaScript and Strandbeests. It also is a good real-world use-case to test my I2C dist.
[stevieb]: I just don't feel like going hardcore on anything today, so I thought I'd *use* my software instead of just write it
