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

I do have the build directory, found here on my setup: /home/user/.local/share/.cpan/build It contains a folder for each attempted install of a module, as yours does. These folders do not contain any build logs, however. Do you know where the build logs are saved in your configuration? I'll have to spend some more time looking at the CPAN options (and comparing them to their values on my Linux machine) to see which one(s) might be relevant to my question.

    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'

    I ran find ~ -name "build.log": no results returned.

    I've just noticed the "EDIT:" in your OP. It looks like you have your answer.

    For future reference, I get notified if you reply to one of my posts; I do not get a notification when you update one of your posts.
