I want to be able to verify the perl module that has been downloaded by its signature. Cpanm provides an option for this called -verify, but the description for the option is a little ambiguous -<br/><br/>--verify<br/>Verify the integrity of distribution files retrieved from PAUSE using CHECKSUMS and SIGNATURES (if found). Defaults to false.<br/>It sounds like it means that the signature will be checked only if it is present.
