Looks like you're using Mac OS X? Try this: First, download it from: http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RK/RKRIMEN/App-GitHub-FixRepositoryName-0.01.tar.gz Then, untar it, cd into the directory, and then run 'cpan .' If you have wget, the steps are: wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RK/RKRIMEN/App-GitHub-FixRepositoryName-0.01.tar.gz tar -xvzf App-GitHub-FixRepositoryName-0.01.tar.gz cd App-GitHub-FixRepositoryName-0.01 cpan .

Try upgrading cpan with this command: perl -MCPAN -e '$ENV{FTP_PASSIVE} = 1; install CPAN' Also, take a look at: http://sial.org/howto/perl/life-with-cpan/ Something there might help you... If you get it working, please write back what worked, and I'll update the dox Thanks

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Also, looks like you have an extra slash at the end of the module name

i'm sure it would. sadly, i don't have time to troubleshoot this in any detail, as it is really more of a curiosity. if you make a different version that obviates the need for cpan, let me know.... many thanks, j Show quoted text

i tried it without the slash, and it didn't work. trying with the slash didn't work, but was better.
