CPANPLUS intall and config question

by Anonymous Monk
on Sep 14, 2004 at 13:12 UTC ( #390827=perlquestion: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

whilist installing CPANPLUS in my home dir on a shared server I got the following warning.

### IMPORTANT ##################################################### Since you chose a custom config file location, do not forget to set the environment variable "PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG" to "/usr/home/user_name/.cpanplus/config" before running 'make' or your config will not be detected! ###################################################################

I opened up ~/.cpanplus/config and it looks like it's an OO module that basiaclly sets a bunch of variables. However, I found no hash key for PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG.

Where then do I set PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG to "/usr/home/user_name/.cpanplus/config"

Any ideas?

    PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG is a shell variable, not a Perl variable. So, set it in your shell:

    # If you are using a Bourne shell: PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG=/usr/home/user_name/.cpanplus/config export PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG # If you are using a C shell: setenv PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG /usr/home/user_name/.cpanplus/config

    print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},"
    The Sidhekin proves Sidhe did it!

    > the environment variable

    That's going to depend on which OS you're using.

    If you'll tell us your OS, we'll tell you how to set the environment variable.

    I run Windows (yes, I know...), but I think the command for Linux would be "export PERL5_CPANPLUS_CONFIG = /usr/home/user_name/.cpanplus/config" prior to running CPANPLUS.

    I'm on BSD and for my shell
    %echo $SHELL
    /bin/csh

    ~sigh~

    I guess this isn't gonna work anyway...

    Stop in /usr/home/user_name/.cpanplus/5.8.3/build/HTML-Template-2.7.

    it dies like this for any module I try to install

      Turn up verbosity. You probably messed up your permissions.
