[PATCH] Update CPANPLUS to 0.79_03
Message ID:

attached is the patch to update CPANPLUS to 0.79_03, addressing  
various test
and build issues under perl core and the last few open tickets in

Again, we'll be watching the smoke and if no issues arise, this  
release will be
promoted to 'stable'.

All tests pass on my development box as per usual. Here's the  
complete changelog:

Changes for 0.79_03     Fri May 18 19:44:35 2007
* address: #27057: Dry runs and dep tree. Make it possible to view
   which modules will be updated for what reasons when running
   'selfupdate'. 's selfupdate' in the shell now prints this
   dependency tree out and also offers a --dryrun option
* address: #27174: No way to pass case-insensitive patterns to
   ignorelist; All --ignore/--ban options for cpan2dist are now case
* address: #26583: display of installed/required in report is
   confusing; Add a header to the columns generated for clarity
* tweak test conf to play nicer with perl core
* show version number when testing/installing
* add callback to allow to continue after a failed 'make test'
   or 'build test'
* reapply core patch #31028 -- it got lost somehow
   this fixes test setups under perl_core
* add --set-config and --set-program to cpan2dist to overwrite
   random config entries for this invocation only
* document all the options in CPANPLUS::Config
* make saving cpanp-boxed config Just Work and add a banner to
   cpanp-boxed to tell you how to
* expand the help text for 's' with options where applicable
* clarify * and .. hint in default shell
* silence warning in when a path to an .exe is not defined
* The test suite now adds the '/nologo' option when the user
   has 'nmake.exe' configured as their 'make' program, to limit
   the amount of noise on the terminal.
