Why are you including lots of core modules in this installation list? Did you actually install Boost::Graph without error using the method you suggest?

    You should always declare in your Makefile.PL (or Build.PL, or other build instructions) *all* the modules your code depends on. That's because older versions of perl have fewer modules in core, and new versions of perl occasionally drop modules from core.

    I presume that that is a list of all the modules used by the code. Including a few core modules can't do any harm.

      "You should always declare in your Makefile.PL (or Build.PL, or other build instructions) *all* the modules your code depends on. That's because older versions of perl have fewer modules in core"

      I agree, but the modules in question have been core since 5/5.6.

      "I presume that that is a list of all the modules used by the code"

      Is it? Perhaps. Khen1950fx has a history of posts like this where there's no difference from doing cpan Module::Name, also forcing installs so potential problems are missed and even going so far as to create a module on cpan (infact I just found another, Task::Mechanistic, again pointless) to install another module. None of this makes any sense from a module installation perspecitve.

      Update: s/installing/install/

    Yes---It installed without error, which seems to be something that eludes you:).

      Eludes me? I specifically asked you this question. You answered. The other inditect question (also asked previously), of why you suggest people install modules in such a ridiculous fashion and why you pollute CPAN with modules which simply install other cpan modules remains unknown.
