When I attempt to use CPANPLUS 0.076 to install Term::ReadLine 1.0302, I get errors such as (sorry about the wrapping): [MSG] Extracted 'Term::ReadLine::Perl' to '/Users/jleffler/.cpanplus/5.8.8/build/Term-ReadLine-Perl-1.0302' ==> MISSING Signature file! <== Running [/Users/jleffler/perl/v5.8.8/bin/perl /Users/jleffler/perl/v5.8.8/bin/cpanp-run-perl Makefile.PL ]...

Is there something that Term::ReadLine can do generically to fix this - at least to the point of the test passing (without doing any real testing) if the terminal size cannot be determined?

I'm running the exact same perl version and OS version as you, but i can't get the failure to occur -- neither from CPANPLUS nor from the shell... I've tried in all available terminals; xterm, iTerm and Terminal.app, but to no avail. I've also checked with the author of Term::ReadKey but he wasn't able to shed any light on the matter either -- it *should* just work and not throw an error, since all the ways the size determination are done 'just work' on macs... Perhaps you have some additional info that could help me or the author of term::readkey find out what's going on? What happens when you install Term::ReadKey on it's own? Regards, Jos
