cpanp - [ERROR] is not a proper distribution name!by mpersico (Beadle)
|on Dec 20, 2013 at 14:37 UTC||Need Help??|
mpersico has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am building 5.18.1. The initial build is fine. Then I do a step where I run cpanp -o, parse for out of date modules, filter some out and add some others for local political reasons and then start doing cpan -i --allow_build_interactivity=0 module.... Initially, no issues. However, once I update CPANPLUS to 0.9114 and CPANPLUS::Dist::Build to 0.74, I get the message
[ERROR] is not a proper distribution name!
each time cpanp is started. It doesn't cause any problems, but I wonder, before I go and report a bug, has anyone else seen this?
UPDATE: It was the --allow_build_interactivity=0 flag that was the problem. It is an illegal flag to cpanp. It IS, however, a Config item you can set for cpanp.
