I think the message for disabled distributions (through a distropref file) could be improved. Now it looks like: $ /usr/perl5.005_05/bin/cpan -t Tk ... ______________________ D i s t r o P r e f s ______________________ Tk.dd[1] CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9708) Running make for N/NI/NI-S/Tk-804.027.tar.gz Disabled via prefs file '/usr/local/src/CPAN/prefs/Tk.dd' doc 1 NI-S/Tk-804.027.tar.gz [disabled] -- NA Disabled via prefs file '/usr/local/src/CPAN/prefs/Tk.dd' doc 1 Is neither a tar nor a zip archive. Had problems unarchiving. Please build manually Running make test Make had some problems, won't test Probably it should short-circuit faster? Regards, Slaven
