in reply to Re^5: cpan installing modules outside of the @INC path
in thread cpan installing modules outside of the @INC path

Actually, changing the source of cpan to /usr/local rather than /usr/bin resulted in the modules being placed in the desired path.

Our sysadmin (yes I know, what am I doing mucking about with the internals of cpan if I'm not him) installed a locally-compiled version of perl and adjusted the $PATH to read /usr/local first. As soon as you cited the source, I realized that.

So, thanks again.
