in reply to [ERROR] 'Terminal>' does not contain an author part

This is very strange indeed.

Did it work before you updated?

Why do you have a $ command line prompt? Are you using MSWin32 Perl from inside Cygwin or some other UNIX-a-like environment like Interix (SUA)?

More details like this would be appreciated

    IIRC, it didn't, but I didn't really notice since I didn't have need for an interactive session (cpanp i module mostly just works) since I built it on 2011-08-10

    cpan works, prompts me all normal like :)

    Nothing like that, its just my prompt :) cmd.exe prompt $$$S

    Such as? You can see perl -V here, only thing different in that version from this version, was addition of -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ which caused different problem, but cpanp prompted.

    Ok, here is another fun fact, the perl debugger (which I never use) won't start up either (perl -de 42) it goes into some kind of infinite loop while eating memory

    All test suites pass, and these are the only hiccups I could find.

    Actually, it reminds me of Faulting application perl.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module msvcrt.dll, version 7.0.2600.1106, fault address 0x0003334c. but I hope its not something like that again.

      The only commonality between cpanp in interactive mode and the debugger is that both use Term::ReadLine

      You can disable Term::ReadLine in the debugger with:

      set PERLDB_OPTS="ReadLine 0" perl -de 42

      Assuming that works then Term::ReadLine is at fault.

        Nope, didn't work, no change observed
        $ set PERLDB_OPTS=ReadLine=0 $ perl -de 42
