[ID 20000324.024] CPAN update triggers attempt to re-install perl 5.6
Message ID:
200003241331.IAA12000@lwv26awu.cas.org
This is a bug report for perl from lvirden@cas.org,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.

[Please enter your report here]

This morning while reading perl5-porters, I noticed a note about a new
version of File::Copy as well as a note about an update to CPAN.
When I started up CPAN, cpan tells me to install Bundle::CPAN to get
the latest.  When I do that, CPAN downloads a new version of Perl 5.6
to install.  As you can see below, I already have that version.  I
even did a diff between the version CPAN is downloading and the version
from which I did the install.  The only differences are those pod
doc nits that I am turning in as time permits.

I decided to skip building the bundle and just do a build on CPAN.
No good - that too attempts to rebuild CPAN.  Here's why:

$ cpan
Undefined value assigned to typeglob at (eval 9) line 12.
Warning [/home/lwv26/.inputrc line 2]:
  Invalid variable `show-all-if-ambiguous'

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.52)
ReadLine support enabled

cpan> i /File::Copy/
Going to read /home/lwv26/.cpan/sources/authors/01mailrc.txt.gz
CPAN: Compress::Zlib loaded ok
Going to read /home/lwv26/.cpan/sources/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz
Scanning cache /home/lwv26/.cpan/build for sizes

  There's a new CPAN.pm version (v1.53) available!
  [Current version is v1.52]
  You might want to try
    install Bundle::CPAN
    reload cpan
  without quitting the current session. It should be a seamless upgrade
  while we are running...

Going to read /home/lwv26/.cpan/sources/modules/03modlist.data.gz
Module id = File::Copy
    DESCRIPTION  Copying files or filehandles
    CPAN_USERID  GSAR (Gurusamy Sarathy <gsar@ActiveState.com>)
    CPAN_VERSION 2.03
    CPAN_FILE    GSAR/perl-5.6.0.tar.gz
    DSLI_STATUS  adpf (alpha,developer,perl,functions)
    MANPAGE      File::Copy - Copy files or filehandles
    INST_FILE    /vol/lwv26ldatae/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/File/Copy.pm
    INST_VERSION 2.0


cpan> 

However, when I check the INST_FILE, I see:

$File::Copy::VERSION = '2.0';
$File::Copy::Too_Big = 1024 * 1024 * 2;

sub VERSION {
    # Version of File::Copy
    return $File::Copy::VERSION;
}
