in reply to Modules Not Found That Are Correctly Installed

I tried to install WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy. I went through all the steps that you went through. I got the same results. The tests failed every time. However, I tried something a little different. WWW::Mechanize-1.18 should work, theoretically, but it doesn't, so I compared 1.18 with 0.58---there are some radical differences between the two. I reinstalled WWW::Mechanize-0.58. After that, I reinstalled WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy, and all tests were successful! The installation was successful.

As far as WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy's not finding WWW::Mechanize, that's a problem with the module---it's not your system. So, give this procedure a try. See:

WWW::Mechanize-0.58

    This sounds like a bug in Sleepy. Either you or the OP should report this as a bug on rt.cpan.org.

    Falling back to backpan is very much a last resort. You don't know what other code the OP has that relies on WWW::Mechanize.

    Also, if you upgrade WWW::Mechanize after installing WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy, do you get any operational failures, or was it just the tests that needed 0.58?

      Thanx for the advice. Will do. I agree with you that falling back on BACKPAN is a last resort.
      I had no operational failures. It seems that 0.58 was only needed by the tests:-)
        Well, I am getting operational failure:
