How can that be? cpan and cpanm are simply front ends for the installers provided by the distributions.

Because it never tries to download  1,781,641 02packages.details.txt.gz and then unzip/load into a  44,652,400 sourcefiles.s2.39.c0.9133.stored or  21,497,461 Metadata or a  18,997,248 cpandb.sql
