Subject: FW: [perl #69971] umask when using CPAN

Whenever I install software as root using CPAN it uses my umask (077 = permissions of 700) to create the CPAN software directories. Unfortunately, that means that no other userids can use the installed modules. Is there some way to set a parm in CPAN to use a particular umask, such as 022, so I don't have to always remember to change my umask before going into CPAN?

This is no doubt possible. You should file a ticket on the CPAN.pm request tracker. See http://search.cpan.org/dist/CPAN Thanks, David Landgren (on behalf of the perl.org team)
