Re^2: cpan client- install_base value not used to install Text::Table

in thread cpan client- install_base value not used to install Text::Table

One thing to note that module installs as expected when doing everything with Module::Build (./Build, etc) manually (second example). But fails when installing via cpan.

I understand that "install_base" (Module::Build) is not same as PREFIX (ExtUtils::MakeMaker).

Are you suggesting that cpan uses Module::Build to build the module but then uses ExtUtils::MakeMaker to install it (depending on value of INSTALL_BASE) even though "MB" is "prefer_installer" in the CPAN configuration?

    I am suggesting maybe edit config to not use prefix and see what happens. The manual command shown doesn't match the automatic one.

      Will do. Thanks for the pointers.
