Just one more comment in addition to kevbot's excellent post:

You are not allowed to write into directory "/Users/ad/.cpan/sources/authors"

This can also mean that a user other than ad has been working in that directory, for example if one has done sudo cpan in the past. If you still have the permissions problem after you've sorted out the confusion with the /Users/ad vs. /Users/fc, the simplest thing (although it'll cause a bit of re-downloading) is probably just to clobber the entire .cpan directory, making sure to back up the configuration file if you have set up a custom configuration. You may have to do sudo rm, but of course be very careful with this command!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
