This does appear to be a third possible solution, but the CPAN perldoc makes me a little weary about it. Specifically: In fine tuned environments UNINST=1 can cause damage.

1) I installed a new version of module X but CPAN keeps saying, I hav +e the old version installed Most probably you do have the old version installed. This can happ +en if a module installs itself into a different directory in the @INC + path than it was previously installed. This is not really a +problem, you would have the same problem when installing the module m +anually. The easiest way to prevent this behaviour is to add the argu +ment UNINST=1 to the make install call, and that is why many people a +dd this argument permanently by configuring o conf make_install_arg UNINST=1 2) So why is UNINST=1 not the default? Because there are people who have their precise expectations about + who may install where in the @INC path and who uses which @INC array +. In fine tuned environments UNINST=1 can cause damage.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
