Re^4: cpanplus not functioning right in a multiple-Perl installation setup?by HelenCr (Monk)
|on May 10, 2013 at 07:47 UTC||Need Help??|
It turns out that the "terminal is not fully functional" warning is a known problem with the "terminal" after installing Strawberry Perl. See comment #48 here: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/msysgit/chXoBxQ3c0Y where he says: I had this issue after installing Strawberry Perl. See also comment #47 there.
I deleted the TERM environment variable, and then cpanplus is not complaining: "terminal is not fully functional" any more. So this does solve that problem.
Like I said, this leaves us with the main issue: how to make cpanplus refer to a new Perl installation only. Here is some additional information:
%PATH%: echo %PATH% gives:
F:\Win7programs\SBPerl\ is where I've installed Strawberry Perl 5.16.3.
Interestingly, from the old installation, there exists a directory structure on C:\
but there is no similar sub-directory structure for the new installation: \5.16.3
Also, strangely, even if I call cpanp like so (as Corion suggested):
Here is a typical (one-liner) install log:
IMO, the key questions here are:
Many TIA - Helen
N.B. Corion: you said: As the setup of more than one Perl version seems to be problematic for you ...etc
I think my posts here definitely have value, and specifically regarding this current cpanp issue, I think I have identified a bug in CPANPLUS, where it has difficulty identifying the default Perl installation in a multi-Perl installation setup.
If my questions here constitute a nuisance, I can find other forums to gain knowledge at.
