in thread When cpan returns the dreaded "won't install without force"

DrHyde, I know scrolling up and down the Windows command prompt window is easy, however selecting the text to copy and paste to a bug report is not easy. If I have to select pages upon pages of text to copy to a bug report, I can easily get lost (especially when the lines scroll to the right). If I have the report in a nice text file which I can open in a text editor, submitting bug reports would be so much easier. As far as I can tell, I can not wrap lines in my command prompt window.

Have a cookie and a very nice day!

    In that case you want tee(1). If it isn't installed as standard on your OS, it's trivial to write using File::Tee.
