Sorry, I can't be any help here. I avoid Windows wherever I can and therefore know next to nothing about installing CPAN modules on it.

[ambrus]: choroba: that doesn't matter, the cookies are independent on the webserver, they just have to contain your username and crypted password with a seed of the user's choice, you can change the hostname or even construct a cookie without asking the server
[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
[choroba]: holli The money wasn't bad :-)
