CPAN Archives

As part of getting the new iMac up to scratch, I need to recompile chunks of the CPAN modules I have installed on my powerbook. After an hour, I was getting very frustrated with nothing building but ...

... the problem was not the iMac - instead the problem was that the Australian CPAN mirror had not been updated since December 5.

If your CPAN server is out of date, try editing the urllist (o conf urllist).
