$PATH gives me
+1/bin: No such file or directory
I think I'm getting somewhere now. I added the following line to my bash profile
That also changes my perl version to the one in /opt/local/bin but I can invoke cpan with
sudo /Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.1/bin/perl5.14.1 -MCPA
+N -e shell
Now when I try to install GD it nearly succeeds, failing 1 test out of 13 which seems to be something to do with the JPEG library. I'll have to figure that out tomorrow as I'm exhausted now. Thanks for the help.
