in thread help managing modules using CPAN.pm

Can CPAN.pm tell when dependencies are already met by modules previously installed via apt-get?

Of course! CPAN is a Perl program. If apt-get didn't install the Perl modules correctly, other Perl code couldn't see them.

I'm guessing that, of course, apt-get cannot tell when dependencies are already met by modules previously installed via CPAN.pm.

I believe that's correct as well.

    Eeek. Of course. Of course. Thank you. I guess I'm just used to apt where: if you didn't use apt/dpkg to install it, it's not installed. ;)
