in reply to CPANP (CPAN Plus) failing?

Note that the referenced directory from the error message mentions Dwimperl while you claim to use Strawberry Perl. The two are not the same.

If you eliminated Dwimperl from your machine, this may be a symptom of some configuration files having been left around with misleading entries. If so, hunt them down and delete them or alternatively reconfigure cpanp to use the appropriate configuration values.

    Corion: indeed, that PC has two different installations of Perl.

    So, should I go:

    perl -MCPANPLUS::Configure::Setup -e 'CPANPLUS::Configure::Setup->init()'

    like it says here?:

    Many TIA - Helen

      I suggest you stick to using one Perl distribution to avoid confusion. Different distros have different modules packaged. Recently this problem. Note that both Strawberry Perl and DWIM perl have a C compiler. Consider thoroughly reading the docuemntation for modules before attempting to install them, or their prerequisites.

      I wouldn't know. I don't use cpanplus. But if their FAQ suggests it, I would investigate that way of solving things.

        For the benefit of PerlMonks users: I went (in cpanp):

        CPAN Terminal>s selfupdate enabled_features

        and it fixed the problem.

        Many thanks to Corion and marto for your help - Helen
