CPAN HO!

[ #6297 ]
(1) Join Apple Developer Blahblah and download your OS X Developer's Kit (aka gcc + make + stuff I haven't heard of before).

(2) Download wget (ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/distfiles is my favourite Get ch0re w4r3z site) and install it.

(3) Tell CPAN config that "wget -q" is the path to your ncftpget program. Ho ho.

Rock on.

  • CPAN.pm wants to install perl-5.6.1 to get a newer version of the Autoloader. Um, no.

    --Nat

  • Do you have the most recent CPAN.pm? Older versions tended to do that....

  • Why are you going to the FreeBSD site to get software for OS X?
    • Install fink from here [sf.net]
    • Just type fink install wget
    (Thanks for the pointer about ncftp. I just tolerated it for the few moments until lwp/libnet were installed...)
  • ... fink - http://fink.sf.net/

    And what do you need wget for? curl is distributed with Mac OS X. Better license too. :-)
