Subject: prompted despite set PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1

In my Config/User.pm I do have $conf->set_conf( prereqs => 2 ); but shouldn't setting PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT stop cpanp from prompting? $ cpanp v CPANPLUS::Shell::Default -- CPAN exploration and module installation (v0.89_03) *** Please report bugs to <bug-cpanplus@rt.cpan.org>. *** Using CPANPLUS::Backend v0.89_03.

you want prereqs => 1 for straight installation. CPAN Terminal> s conf prereqs 1; s save Will do the trick for you -- Jos Boumans "Whenever you find you are on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." - Mark Twain

Thank you, but I knew that :) I did not want to edit my config. I prefer 2, and wanted no prompts only for that one module. The traditional way to accomplish this is to set PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT cpan respects this tradition , i think cpanp should also

The PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT environment variable is a ExtUtils::MakeMaker setting to take the default answer in response to its prompt() function. Module::Build also honours this convention. The reason that CPAN.pm 'respects this tradition' is through action at a distance. CPAN.pm's prompting is basically a wrapper around EUMM's prompt() function. It is less of a tradition and more of a side-effect. Also setting PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT does not bypass all prompting, as Module::AutoInstall does not honour this env var and uses its own env var. Anyways, I have looked at how this behaviour could be implemented and on reflection it would have massive knock-on implications for things like CPAN Testing. Automated testers set PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT, but rely on the fact that $conf->{prereqs} is set to 2, so that the necessary install prereqs callback code is executed.

I see. Maybe some kind of --noninteractive / --noprompt option might make sense.
