in reply to CPAN non-root questions

Unless I'm totally misunderstanding your question, this is all covered in the CPAN FAQ.

In short, you can govern where the files are built to on the command line. You can override the default cpan config file by simply creating a .cpan directory structure and config file in your home directory. Pretty sure all of that is covered in the CPAN faq though.

    No you got it right. I checked the faq, I'm apparently just mildly illiterate. Well, I used perldoc -q. I never really thought to check the CPAN website. That's an excellent link.
        Hey, thanks for this information. But for future reference, 5 yeas after the fact, I totally figured it out already. Thanks.
