Re: [FishMonger] Modern::Perl on CygWin
[In reply to]
You are correct to have me try other modules. I just tried another, one of my own, and started to get similar results. So the problem is the mirror. So something is screwy with the configurations in my .cpan directory, which I did not set up intelligently; I merely ran the cpan command with no parameters and accepted all default choices. I did this all this on this PC 3 years ago but have done little Perl work here since then.
As to alternative installations of Perl, like Strawberry: This is something I will consider trying out. My reason for using CygWin is my desire to keep everything Unix-like. I can't always boot my other PC to Linux.
Thanks for the suggestion, though.
That said, what can I examine in the .cpan hierarchy; I'm utterly blind in this department.
I have attached a copy of ~.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm fwiw. If there's something in there I can change to make it work, I'd love to know about it. As well, a pointer to where these members are documented would be helpful.
