./devel/p5-CPAN, Perl module to query, download and build perl modules from CPAN sites

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.2700nb1, Package name: p5-CPAN-2.2700nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The CPAN module automates or at least simplifies the make and install of perl
modules and extensions. It includes some primitive searching capabilities and
knows how to use Net::FTP or LWP or some external download clients to fetch
the distributions from the net.

Required to run:
[textproc/p5-YAML] [textproc/p5-Text-Glob] [textproc/p5-YAML-Syck] [www/p5-libwww] [archivers/p5-Archive-Zip] [lang/perl5] [security/p5-Module-Signature] [devel/p5-File-HomeDir] [devel/p5-Term-ReadKey] [devel/p5-File-Which]

	* release 2.27-TRIAL2
	* bugfix: omit the new POSIX::setsid call and the waitpid with
	WNOHANG on Windows
	* bugfix: the signalhandler has to kill the new process group
	spawned for running the tests
	* adding the README file that was generated during the release of

2019-05-31  k  <>

	* release 2.27-TRIAL

	* two new options to protect against accidental downgrades:
	allow_installing_outdated_dists and

	* two new options to tune the automatic determination of the
	nearest peers: urllist_ping_external and urllist_ping_verbose;
	NOTE: this feature was developed during the Perl Toolchain Summit
	2019 in Marlow; thanks to the sponsors:, cPanel,
	MaxMind, FastMail, ZipRecruiter, Cogendo, Elastic, OpenCage Data,
	Perl Services, Zoopla, Archer Education, OpusVL, Oetiker+Partner,
	SureVoIP, YEF

	* reveal the size of PERL5LIB in diagnostic output

	* new semantics for parameter ftpstats_size: setting to '0' or
	lower, disables download statistics

	* bugfix: under certain circumstances, failing dependencies via
	recommends and suggests could abort a build; this is now fixed

	* bugfix: protect bundle processing against unavailable bundle
	files and missing build directories

	* bugfix: fix broken permissions after untar

	* bugfix: protect against exceptions from unzip

	* bugfix: add one level of fork+setsid for testing to prevent that
	a test can kill the process group that is running in.
	Learned from experience with testing VIZDOM/DBD-JDBC-0.71.tar.gz

	* fix plugins: all early returns from all methods, that are
	accessible for plugins, now call the post* plugins

	* new question answered in the FAQ: "How can I switch to sudo
	instead of local::lib" (thanks to Amos Bird for asking the
	question on irc)

	* plenty of new and updated distroprefs documents, among which are
	some important ones to prevent Module::AutoInstall from switching
	to CPANPLUS and taking over (and harming) the build
