in reply to CPAN module getting Killed

Wierd... I don't have 5.8.0 installed here, but the word "Killed" doesn't show up anywhere in my installed modules for 5.6.1.

I can think of 2 things you can try.

First, try running that with the -d option to invoke the perl debugger; maybe the debugger will catch whatever's doing the "Kill" and let you get a stack trace.

Second, type perldoc -l CPAN, and note down the directory where CPAN is installed. Then do (assuming /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 is that directory):

find /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0 | xargs grep -w Killed
and see if you can find out if the "Killed" is from a module...

Yes, I know I could have used File::Find to do that, but for some things, find/xargs is just simpler.

(Edit: I downloaded the 5.8.0 source tree. The word /killed/i does not appear anywhere in the tree, at least, not where it would print out like that...)

    I think that it is not the part of CPAN itself, but rather the OS sends the SIGKILL. Now I wonder why it does that.
