  • So firstly, no guarentees if you have more than one Perl installed... no Perls really live together well.

    Secondly, there's known issues in CPAN.pm.

    I recommend uninstalling the July strawberry and trying again with the new October release.

    http://strawberry-perl.googlecode.com/files/strawberry-perl-5.10.1.0.msi [googlecode.com]

    This has a new (dev) CPAN release that might fix your problem, and some updated Perl modules and C libraries that should (hopefully) make the installation much easier.

    Finally, yes, newbies are not REALL

    • Almost every Windows server I use at work has three Perls installed - Activestate (which we run our code against), Oracle's Perl, and an HP version that comes with its server software. It appears mostly seemless, but it in the bad old days (probably 7-8 years ago), an upgrade of Oracle meant that it's Perl took preference over Activestate's and our code crashed and burned. I'm not sure if this is still an issue.
