JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Mason's just unhappy no matter what I do. Installation via -MCPAN doesn't fly. PPM installation doesn't fly. I've taken to downloading and attempting to install manually, and the things that I need to try to install manually so that Mason can install manually refuse to install manually because of their prerequisites.

What this all means is, while I'm sure Mason's very nice and I like reading about the features, I won't be using it tonight, or probably this weekend. Unfortunate, but I'll get back to it again soon.

    Mason specifies prereqs in the standard Makefile.PL way. I kind of doubt the problems you're seeing are Mason's fault, but do feel free to send email to the mason-users list.
    • I never thought it was, just that I was too inexperienced to figure out what was going wrong, actually. (The title was meant to indicate this, although it doesn't. It was meant to be "Nice MODULE!" the way Jerry Lewis would say "Nice LADY!", as if I'm bumbling around with the module, which I was.)

      I'll figure out what I'm doing wrong and get it working eventually. Mason sounds too juicy to pass up. :)


      You are what you think.
