in reply to Reinstalling perl from scratch on OS X

It would help if we knew which modules were failing to install and what the reason is, or at least the reported error messages. I tried installing Tk on my MacBook a couple of months ago and the test failed because I hadn't installed X11. Since I don't do much development on my Mac, I just let it go.

    Well what I've bumped into so far includes Bit::Vector::Overload

    CPAN complains about

    LWP failed with code[500] message[MIME::Base64 object version 3.05 doe +s not match bootstrap parameter 3.07]
    There are some others that I'm not finding at the moment, but it's been really annoying since they've blocked me from using some other CPAN modules that would make my life much simpler.

      OK, I tried to install it at the CPAN prompt by typing install Bit::Vector::Overload. The first thing I saw was something like 'LWP not available, using Net::FTP'. Since we got such different results hopefully some of the other Monks can help you further, but my instinct is that the code[500] is an error message from the server.

      As an aside, Bit::Vector::Overload didn't install for me either because of dependencies on other modules I don't have, but the install script generated pages and pages of test messages along the way (mostly all passed), so you'll forgive me if I don't repeat them here.
