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

Something detonated my CPAN shell between successive runs. Now, when I try to install a new module, I see this:

Installing Data::Dump::Streamer I can install a shortcut so you can use the package 'DDS' as though it was 'Data::Dump::Streamer'. This is handy for oneliners. *Note* that if you select 'no' below and you already have it installed then it will be removed. Would you like me to install the shortcut? (yes/no) [no] Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Warning: PERL_LIB (/usr/share/perl/5.8) seems not to be a perl library + directory ( not found) at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/ExtUtil +s/ line 1727. Writing Makefile for Data::Dump::Streamer Use of inherited AUTOLOAD for non-method main::version::(""() is depre +cated at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/ line 10254.

I don't suppose anyone else has seen this? I don't relish going diving in search of the cause of this...

(Things like this make me wish there were a section on PM for "WTF?")

Update: Fixed formatting of code snippet


In reply to What Just Happened to my CPAN Shell? by rjray

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.
