I'm also a happy cpanminus user:

+% cpanm -n Attempt ! ! Can't write to /usr/local/share/perl5 and /usr/local/bin: Installing + modules to /home/arun/perl5 ! To turn off this warning, you have to do one of the following: ! - run me as a root or with --sudo option (to install to /usr/local +/share/perl5 and /usr/local/bin) | - run me with --local-lib option e.g. cpanm --local-lib=~/perl5 ! - Set PERL_CPANM_OPT="--local-lib=~/perl5" environment variable (i +n your shell rc file) ! - Configure local::lib in your shell to set PERL_MM_OPT etc. ! --> Working on Attempt Fetching +1.tar.gz ... OK Configuring Attempt-1.01 ... OK Building Attempt-1.01 ... OK Successfully installed Attempt-1.01 1 distribution installed
It makes installing modules quick and easy, and doesn't need to run as root. Another bonus is that it can be installed as a standalone script without needing to use cpan.
