Re^2: Update on setting up a PAUSE testing environmentby hsmyers (Canon)

You are right, I tend to treat questions like some treat documentation (but it's self-evident... :) ), I shouldn't but I do. This is the third way that I've see to install cpanm, but you I trust! I'll give it a shot and see what happens. Still wish I didn't have the knack of turning speed-bumps into climbing walls...
Update: Clearly I don't understand what you've said. I tried the following:
With the results as shown. Maybe I wasn't clear (the not asking questions thing) what I need is a cpanm that works with perlbrew. What I have now is one that only installs in the original environment. As a for instance, the attempt to install Chess::PGN::Moves shows a reference to the one installed under 5.10, not to one installed under 5.8.1. Further, the first line is as you had shown and got the result that you see. If I now do a quick test:
This shows that no attempt to use cpanm has yet worked in the 5.8.1 context. Since I have no idea of what any of the commands you showed mean, I have no idea of what might be wrong---clearly something is. Given the lack of any directory off of /usr/ named perlbrew, I wonder about my installation of perlbrew---did I mess it up somehow? The only thing that I have that matches what you've said is that I do have a /usr/bin/perl. Being curious I did:
The documentation didn't say what the '*' stands for, but if I do:
This might explain why my attempt to perlbrew switch /usr/bin/perl didn't work.
The more I look at your first post, the more I'm wondering why I don't have a /usr/perlbrew/ directory. After all if I screwed up cpanm to to point of non-usability, doing the same to perlbrew should be dead bang easy...IMPORTANT Update: Found the problem or at least found something that works (can't speak to its correctness beyond that) Did this:
As per usual, a ton of thanks to all who helped and made offers of help—you and all of the other Monks make this place the incredible resource that it is!
