Subject: force install inconsistency between interactive and non-interactive invocation
Attempt to reinstall a package stops on package is up to date: # perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "Scalar::Util"' CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.20) Going to read '/root/.cpan/Metadata' Database was generated on Mon, 29 Nov 2010 12:30:09 GMT Scalar::Util is up to date (1.23). However running the same command from interactive CPAN shell works: # perl -MCPAN -e 'shell' cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.9402) Enter 'h' for help. cpan[1]> force install "Scalar::Util" CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.20) Going to read '/root/.cpan/Metadata' Database was generated on Mon, 29 Nov 2010 12:30:09 GMT Running install for module 'Scalar::Util' [...] make install -- OK Is this discrepancy intentional?

What you write here is force(install('Scalar::Util')) What you want is force("install", "Scalar::Util")

No, I just don't know how to write a CPAN::DWIM::shell:) -- andreas
