Rather than trying to install everything, it's better to break your list down into manageable chunks. For example to install all modules beginning with "A":

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CPAN; print $_->install() foreach CPAN::Shell->expand("Module", "/^A/");
I usually break it down even further. For example, all modules starting with "Aa", "Ab", etc.
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use CPAN; print $_->install() foreach CPAN::Shell->expand("Module", "/^Aa/"); print $_->install() foreach CPAN::Shell->expand("Module", "/^Ab/");
And for an entire namespace, say Catalyst:
print $_->install() foreach CPAN::Shell->expand("Module", "/^Catalyst/");
