in reply to cpan error messages

I will normally go to the cpan build directory, usually ~/.cpan/build/, change to the directory for the particular module I am building, and do another build under the directory with the command: make 2>&1 | tee build.log | more.

This way, I can build the package, redirect STDERR to STDOUT (so I can capture all build messages), capture the build messages in a build.log file, while inspecting the output page by page with more.

    Thank you, Roger. I do believe you've hit it right on the head. I appreciate it...

    I find the "look Module::Name" command extremely valuable, if used within the same session, because it doesn't reset the directory.

    So when I hit an error, and want to poke around, I hit uparrow, change "install" to "look", and there I am in the build directory already.
