Re: beep R beep C beep 3
Message ID:
It is unfortunate that the CPAN bundle is still broken. We're talking
about a brand new Perl version here, and for me, and a lot of others,
a new Perl installation means:

    Configure && make all test && make install
    perl -MCPAN -e 'install("Bundle::CPAN")'
    perl -MCPAN ... lots of other installs ...

Currently, the Bundle::CPAN fails on Archive::Tar (autovivification
problem?) and, when behind a strategy 1 firewall, CPAN::WAIT.

Then, still behind the firewall, Net::FTP starts blowing up every

This has all been reported some time ago.

One might argue that Archive::Tar, CPAN::WAIT and Net::FTP are not
part of the Perl core, which is correct. But is. And the first
thing that suggests is to install Bundle::CPAN.
