in reply to How to install module with CPANPLUS without prompting?

I don't want to be prompted, but how?

It won't always work, but in most cases, you can set the PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT environment variable and modules that use ExtUtils::MakeMaker's prompt function won't prompt and will use the default instead. So on *nix:

$ PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 cpanp i Template
