in reply to Using CPAN

Or you could do from the Command Line Interface ( CLI ) like::

perl -MCPAN -eshell
then you enter into cpan shell and do the installation like :
 cpan[1]> install Imager

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.

    OK. I followed your suggestion: perl -MCPAN -eshell, etc. There were a ton of errors. It seems it was using (trying to use) the WATCOM nmake.

      I then tried renaming Watcom nmake, then again MCPAN. And again, there were many errors. I tried redirecting the install Imager line (using gt sign), but it only saved the last dozen or so items.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
