Hey folks, Maybe there is a Perl/CPAN list that is a better place to ask this? If so, maybe someone can point me to it. Anyway, I want to be able to script the installation of a bunch of CPAN modules, and the first basic problem I am coming up against is that the "cpan" command seems to always return 0 regardless of whether or not the install completed. Google does not bring up a whole lot of help for me here, but I have to think this problem has already been solved. Thanks for any guidance you can give. -Alan -- “Don't eat anything you've ever seen advertised on TV” - Michael Pollan, author of "In Defense of Food"
