macrobat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


Somehow, when I run cpan -i Some::Module, (or run cpan interactively, for that matter), it installs the module somewhere outside my @INC path. The first time it did that, I was really confused, but I found I could move the module (and the docs) to the right places manually.

That kinda thwarts the whole point of automating the install, though.

Anyone know where you change the setting where cpan installs modules?
