- Parse::CPAN::Authors - installation failed Can't Post


hello and good day

i have tried to install a perl module - but without success.

well - it is - Parse::CPAN::Authors

and i think that i have some issues with the prerequisites of / for perl

see the installation - hmmm guess that there went something wrong

see the usage - i tried to use the module but without success

martin@linux-70ce:~> perl -MCPAN -e shell

Sorry, we have to rerun the configuration dialog for due to
some missing parameters. Configuration will be written to
<</home/martin/.cpan/CPAN/>> requires configuration, but most of it can be done automatically.
If you answer 'no' below, you will enter an interactive dialog for each
configuration option instead.

Would you like to configure as much as possible automatically? [yes]

Warning: You do not have write permission for Perl library directories.

To install modules, you need to configure a local Perl library directory or
escalate your privileges. CPAN can help you by bootstrapping the local::lib
module or by configuring itself to use 'sudo' (if available). You may also
resolve this problem manually if you need to customize your setup.

What approach do you want? (Choose 'local::lib', 'sudo' or 'manual')
[local::lib] sudo

Autoconfigured everything but 'urllist'.

Now you need to choose your CPAN mirror sites. You can let me
pick mirrors for you, you can select them from a list or you
can enter them by hand.

Would you like me to automatically choose some CPAN mirror
sites for you? (This means connecting to the Internet) [yes] y

You can re-run configuration any time with 'o conf init' in the CPAN shell

my $p = Parse::CPAN::Authors->new($mailrc_contents);

my $author = $p->author('W');
# $a is a Parse::CPAN::Authors::Author object
# ... objects are returned by Parse::CPAN::Authors
print $author->email, "\n"; #
print $author->name, "\n"; # Leon Brocard
print $author->pauseid, "\n"; # LBROCARD

# all the author objects
my @authors = $p->authors;

Re: [dilbert] - Parse::CPAN::Authors - installation failed [In reply to] Can't Post
