in reply to When cpan returns the dreaded "won't install without force"
You can set not only the size of the command prompt window, but also the size of the screen "buffer". Rightclick the title bar of the command prompt window, select Defaults and set the Screen Buffer Size / Height to a big enough value. You will then be able to scroll back through the output. I've got mine set to 5000 with no problems.
Enoch was right!
Enjoy the last years of Rome.
