  • I'll chalk it up to having a bad day, but the last time I tried installing Plagger, I got fed up with the amount of deps.

    http://use.perl.org/~jk2addict/journal/31372 [perl.org]
  • ...I shouldn't have said Y to all the optional deps. It's still going more than an hour since I started. Crazy stuff.

    Still it probably means I'm unlikely to need to install anything for a few weeks - pretty soon I'll have all of CPAN :)

  • Catalyst solved this problem by splitting it into seperate distributions.

    They have some core dists, and then the Task::Catalyst dist which asks a whole bunch of different questions and installs whatever deps you need.

    Plagger is currently the same, you almost certainly shouldn't install ALL the optional deps.
    • I now know this :)

      I started again skipping all the optional deps and, while it still pulled in a load of dependencies it installed cleanly in a few minutes.

      I think that at least the documentation could use a note to explain this. Unfortuntely the Plagger Wiki doesn't seem to be editable so I can't add it.

  • The sad thing is that two of those at least (Test::Pod and Test::Pod::Coverage) don't even add any user functionality.
