in reply to Most infamous "Last words":

I voted for "reformat and reinstall".

I was having trouble after trouble with my perl installation on cygwin at my new job. CPAN was broken - refused to run make. I'd use it to get get modules, then cd ~/.cpan/build/module-dir; make && make test.... Had to work out the dependencies myself. Then cygwin/X stopped working. "Screw this, I'll just blow away C:\cygwin and start from scratch".

Half a day later, and I think I have most of the modules I had worked so hard to get installed the first time re-installed. CPAN is still a little funky (serves me right for keeping a "hand-me-down" computer instead of insisting on a freshly imaged box) but let me tell you that reformating and reinstalling is not always the best option :)

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
