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

(I originally made comments similar to the below in the ChatterBox on 2018-06-01T08:43:37-0500, but adding here for comment by others.)

As some may not be familiar with cpanminus (or other CPAN clients), perhaps it might be of benefit to provide (possibly as one or more tutorials or meditations) a comparison of cpanminus to other common CPAN clients, showing the strengths (and, my hope, the weaknesses also) of both, and illustrating the reason(s) you believe there is (or is not) a benefit to doing so.

(Personally, I believe I only tried cpanminus on one occasion, and I honestly only remember that it used a different directory structure to my normal CPAN usage ("perl -MCPAN -e 'shell;'"), and thinking that if one were experimenting with different CPAN clients how much space could be "wasted" in the process.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
