in reply to cpan> o conf settings

o conf commit makes the changes permanent, so I'm assuming something else is changing these settings and also using o conf commit?
perl -MCPAN -E' CPAN::Shell->o("conf", "build_requires_install_policy", "yes"); CPAN::Shell->o("conf", "prerequisites_policy", "follow"); CPAN::Shell->o("conf", "commit"); '

    Hi Ikegami,

    Thanks for your post.

    I don't think anything else changes the settings, but I always use the form:

    $ cpan -i My::Mod

    So it comes in and out of cpan. This makes it easier for me to maintain the code. In fact I should probably turn it into a single Perl script, so I can standardise the error handling, and resume from the point of any crashes.

    Thanks again.



      I don't think anything else changes the settings,

      Then you don't need to run any of the commands you specified. o conf commit specifically instructs cpan to remember the changes you made.

        Hi Ikegami,

        Then you don't need to run any of the commands you specified

        Well if I don't run:

        cpan> o conf build_requires_install_policy yes cpan> o conf prerequisites_policy follow

        I have to sit there and hit <enter> all day, unless you have an alternative answer :)
