Re: CPAN installation

CPAN should try alternative download methods if LWP isn't present (lynx, ftp, etc.). It should warn you if LWP isn't present, and then try one of the alternatives.

You might try removing your ~/.cpan directory and trying again.

If you manually install the Perl modules, the configuration scripts will handle linking with existing libraries.
The usual procedure to build a module is:

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

Hello las_users,

I am installing LAS and as you are aware one of the pre-requisites is to have a
few CPAN modules installed as listed in the installation document. As I get
into the CPAN shell, and try to do install or get, I am told LWP is not
installed. Now -

1) Is there a way to install CPAN modules without LWP?
2) Can I reinstall CPAN all over again from fresh?
3) If I manually install the perl modules that are required (which I have
downloaded) how do I link these with existing perl libraries?

Any help will be deeply appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
