in reply to CPANP (CPAN Plus) stopped working - help

I suspect it is a change in one of the CPAN index files that occurred today that is causing your problems.

You could turn on verbosity, just to be sure

CPAN Terminal> s conf verbose 1

If it is as I suspect, then upgrading to the fixed version of CPANPLUS (0.9136) I released today should solve the problem

C:\> lwp-mirror http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/B/BI/BINGOS/CPANPLUS-0. +9136.tar.gz CPANPLUS-0.9136.tar.gz C:\> ptar zxf CPANPLUS-0.9136.tar.gz C:\> cd CPANPLUS-0.9136 C:\> perl bin/cpanp-boxed CPAN Terminal> i CPANPLUS

    bingos, khen1950fx and AM: I have installed 0.9136 according to your instructions - here is the tail of the installation:

    Looks ok, I think.
    I then ran cpanp, and it seems to be working fine.

    That was pressurizing. (sigh of relief).

    Thank you for you investment of time and energy - Helen

    By the way: can cpanp install a module from a PPM repository?

      I'm glad everything worked out in the end.

      It can't do PPM installs sorry. You should have included with DWIM a ppm commandline utility that should be able to.

    I released today should solve the problem

    might require a kick in the pants :)( cpanp -x --update_source )

      bingos/AM: please review this session: I tried to update (x) and it issued an error:

      CPAN Terminal> s conf verbose 1 Key 'verbose' was set to '1' CPAN Terminal> m Wx CPAN Terminal> x --update_source [MSG] Checking if source files are up to date [MSG] Updating source file '01mailrc.txt.gz' [MSG] Trying to get 'http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/authors/01mailrc.t +xt.gz' [MSG] Updating source file '03modlist.data.gz' [MSG] Trying to get 'http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/modules/03modlist. +data.gz' [MSG] Updating source file '02packages.details.txt.gz' [MSG] Trying to get 'http://cpan.strawberryperl.com/modules/02packages +.details.txt.gz' [MSG] Rebuilding author tree, this might take a while [MSG] Rebuilding module tree, this might take a while [ERROR] Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference at F:/Win7p +rograms/Dwimperl/perl/lib/CPANPLUS/Internals/Source.pm line 849.

      Many TIA - Helen

        I tried to update (x) and it issued an error:

        You forgot to download a new CPANPLUS first like bingos showed

        You could even  cpan CPANPLUS if your cpan is in working order
