|Subject:||cpan(1) install fails on OS X|
$ cpan File::Path [...] t/taint....Can't open perl script ""-I/Users/michael/Library/Application Support/.cpan/build/File-Path-2.07-oawBVl/blib/lib"": No such file or directory I just got a MacBook. The above message failed at the command line for "cpan File::Path". After reworking my cpan(1) config in /Users/michael/Library/Aplication Support/.cpan/CPAN/MyConfig.pm to move the .cpan directory under my home directory, the install worked. As much as I despise directories with spaces, that's the OS X default. I've circumvented it, but fixing this problem will help future OS X users. In case collaboration, or common root cause analysis may point to CPAN.pm, I reported identical problem with HTML::Tree.
