( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Others have mentioned that PREFIX and --install_base work differently, and you probably don't want to combine them. You should probably change PREFIX to INSTALL_BASE.

The direct problem you are having is because you've configured the --install_base option on the mbuild_arg, which is the build step. It needs to be set either on the install step (mbuild_install_arg) or the configure step (mbuildpl_arg). Setting it on mbuildpl_arg would correspond to how you were using the option manually.

I would definitely recommend using local::lib instead of configuring this in your CPAN shell. And if you didn't want to use local::lib, you would be better off using the PERL_MM_OPT and PERL_MB_OPT environment variables to change the installation location. Either local::lib or using the environment variables manually has the advantage of working with any install tool, not just the CPAN shell.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
