in thread CPANP (CPAN Plus) stopped working - help

bingos/AM: please review this session: I tried to update (x) and it issued an error:

CPAN Terminal> s conf verbose 1 Key 'verbose' was set to '1' CPAN Terminal> m Wx CPAN Terminal> x --update_source [MSG] Checking if source files are up to date [MSG] Updating source file '01mailrc.txt.gz' [MSG] Trying to get 'http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/authors/01mailrc.t +xt.gz' [MSG] Updating source file '03modlist.data.gz' [MSG] Trying to get 'http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/modules/03modlist. +data.gz' [MSG] Updating source file '02packages.details.txt.gz' [MSG] Trying to get 'http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/modules/02packages +.details.txt.gz' [MSG] Rebuilding author tree, this might take a while [MSG] Rebuilding module tree, this might take a while [ERROR] Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at F:/Win7p +rograms/Dwimperl/perl/lib/CPANPLUS/Internals/Source.pm line 849.

    I tried to update (x) and it issued an error:

    You forgot to download a new CPANPLUS first like bingos showed

    You could even  cpan CPANPLUS if your cpan is in working order

      Thank you, AM. I'll try downloading it in a couple of hours, and report back.

      In the meantime, I followed your suggestion, and got this:

      E:\>cpan cpanplus CPAN: CPAN::SQLite loaded ok (v0.202) Database was generated on Sat, 27 Apr 2013 19:45:20 GMT Warning: Cannot install cpanplus, don't know what it is. Try the command i /cpanplus/ to find objects with matching identifiers.

      Many TIA - Helen

        cpan -fi BINGOS/CPANPLUS-0.9136.tar.gz

        Had you tried the suggested command you'd probably have found the answer. Case counts when installing or calling modules within your code:

        cpan CPANPLUS

        Forcing it to install is unwise as you may not be made aware of any problems. As I've advised before you need to actually read the output of such tools and do what they tell you. Ignoring such things has cause you many problems in the past when installing modules.
