Then I withdraw my objection/comment ... I really don’t know how to read what they are saying.
In any case, with regard to the one shared-hosting account that I still (for the moment) use, I observe that the hosting company has over time rather drastically reduced the memory ulimit of the account to the point that it is barely useless. It can no longer run the cpan command at all, although it can still run cpanm. It’s of such low priority to me that I just haven’t gotten around to deep-sixing this one yet, but when I do, I’ll shake the dust of their town off of my sandals.
