in reply to YAML Parsing Errors Using CPAN on Windows

I had the same problem. The solution was to make CPAN stop loading YAML, but I don't remember exactly how. Here's what o conf shows me for yaml vars:

yaml_load_code [undef] yaml_module []
I don't know how to undef a value from within CPAN, and perldoc isn't helpful for the shell, but I assume somebody here knows. As a last resort you could edit CPAN.pm. And don't forget to o conf commit to write any changes to disk from within the CPAN shell.

    from within cpan shell, enter: o conf yaml_module "" o conf commit
      - this appears to be mostly a permissions error (and YAML module error) under windows. <thus the unix'ie perl guys don't see this error.> The cpan error response is mostly unhelpful...but if you just rename the file, then cpan appears to fix itself. I was able to load/reload Yaml. This looks like a cpan/perl installation induced bug. If this file needs to be rename it should be installed in a location that has sufficient permissions...nuff said.

      - don't know what is up with the HTML::EP suggestion. That seems a bit pointless to install that module without a need...

      - oh, also, disabling yaml via o conf will not correct the problem until the FTPStats.yml file is renamed...
