i use "cpan modulename" to automatically install modules for a long time. a wrapper script redirects output to a file. this stopped working: Unable to get Terminal Size. The TIOCGWINSZ ioctl didn't work. The COLUMNS and LINES environment variables didn't work. The resize program didn't work. at /opt/perl/lib/perl5/Term/ReadKey.pm line 362. Compilation failed in require at /opt/perl/lib/perl5/Term/ReadLine/Perl.pm line 63. [Exit 77] for some reason, cpan seems to require stdout to be a terminal when in batchmode now. I don't know whether this was caused by a new CPAN version, or something else.

Offhand I have no idea what's causing this. I have a workaround for you, make cpan an alias for perl -MCPAN -e '$CPAN::Suppress_readline++; install shift' or similar. It might have to do if there is Term::ReadLine::Perl or Term::ReadLine::Gnu installed and the environment variables wach of them use. The CPAN.pm code in the readline area has not been touched for a long time as far as I know.

Seems to work fine for me, thank you very much :) Show quoted text

Hmm, it is possible thta I use some env variables, but I also don't think that has changed. What did change was that I installed quite a number of modules between working and not-working, including CPAN::SQLite (which I uninstalled since then because cpan crashes often with it, or actually sqlite crashes often) and Term::ReadKey, but I don't quite see the connection (Term::ReadKey should fail with older versions as well). Anyways, the above workaround seems to work, I will try it in my script, many thanks! -- The choice of a Deliantra, the free code+content MORPG -----==- _GNU_ http://www.deliantra.net ----==-- _ generation ---==---(_)__ __ ____ __ Marc Lehmann --==---/ / _ \/ // /\ \/ / pcg@goof.com -=====/_/_//_/\_,_/ /_/\_\
