in thread Where does CPAN store its build directories and logs under cygwin?

Do you know where the build logs are saved in your configuration?

As a lazy bloke I would run cpan under strace capturing open() system calls and inspect the resulting logfile:

$ strace -s4096 -o cpantrace.log -e open cpan $args

That would give me a clue where which files are written.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
