in thread Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?

cpanm has it's advantages, one being speed, it's simply a lot faster.

How can that be? cpan and cpanm are simply front ends for the installers provided by the distributions.

    This isn't strictly true, both packages work differently, as the anonymonk has commented on. Shortly I'll be in a position to demonstrate some evidence/test cases.

    How can that be? cpan and cpanm are simply front ends for the installers provided by the distributions.

    Because it never tries to download  1,781,641 02packages.details.txt.gz and then unzip/load into a  44,652,400 sourcefiles.s2.39.c0.9133.stored or  21,497,461 Metadata or a  18,997,248 cpandb.sql

    These numbers are a 2-6 years old, thats when I switched to cpanminus away from cpanplus and rarely cpan
