If in you I'd remove completely any mention to cpanm for win32 users

Odd, I rarely have troubles when using cpanm on win32 (in fact, it's the only CPAN client I use on Windows). But it is true that I never bother to cpanm --self-upgrade : I cannot think of a time since 5.010 where I really thought "I need to upgrade my cpanm client". Maybe I'm the exception in that regard.

And I see the mixed matchsticks, too, but it hasn't seemed to bother cpanm for me:

C:\> where cpanm c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\perls\system\perl\bin\cpanm c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\perls\system\perl\bin\cpanm.bat C:\> cpanm --version cpanm (App::cpanminus) version 1.7044 (c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\per +ls\system\perl\bin/cpanm) perl version 5.030000 (c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\perls\system\perl\b +in\perl.exe) ... C:\> c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\perls\system\perl\bin/cpanm --version cpanm (App::cpanminus) version 1.7044 (c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\per +ls\system\perl\bin/cpanm) perl version 5.030000 (c:\usr\local\apps\berrybrew\perls\system\perl\b +in\perl.exe) ...
(in fact, as shown, it doesn't bother cmd.exe, either)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
