Did it work before you updated?

IIRC, it didn't, but I didn't really notice since I didn't have need for an interactive session (cpanp i module mostly just works) since I built it on 2011-08-10

cpan works, prompts me all normal like :)

Why do you have a $ command line prompt? Are you using MSWin32 Perl from inside Cygwin or some other UNIX-a-like environment like Interix (SUA)?

Nothing like that, its just my prompt :) cmd.exe prompt $$$S

More details like this would be appreciated

Such as? You can see perl -V here, only thing different in that version from this version, was addition of -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ which caused different problem, but cpanp prompted.

Ok, here is another fun fact, the perl debugger (which I never use) won't start up either (perl -de 42) it goes into some kind of infinite loop while eating memory

All test suites pass, and these are the only hiccups I could find.

Actually, it reminds me of Faulting application perl.exe, version, faulting module msvcrt.dll, version 7.0.2600.1106, fault address 0x0003334c. but I hope its not something like that again.

    The only commonality between cpanp in interactive mode and the debugger is that both use Term::ReadLine

    You can disable Term::ReadLine in the debugger with:

    set PERLDB_OPTS="ReadLine 0" perl -de 42

    Assuming that works then Term::ReadLine is at fault.

      Nope, didn't work, no change observed
      $ set PERLDB_OPTS=ReadLine=0 $ perl -de 42

        Okay. But I still think that Term::ReadLine is to blame in some way.

        I can't reproduce the original CPANPLUS problem with any of the MSWin32 Perls I have. Sorry.
