Subject: CPAN requires File::HomeDir, but File::HomeDir is not a core module
Invoking cpan under Perl 5.13.9 (out of the box) gives me $ cpan File::HomeDir not installed. Please install it or try 'o conf init use_file_homedir' $ perl -MCPAN -e shell File::HomeDir not installed. Please install it or try 'o conf init use_file_homedir' It appears that unless I have File::HomeDir installed (and it isn't under 5.13.9 out of the box) I can't configure CPAN to not use it. The bundled version of CPAN with Perl 5.13.9 is $ perl -MCPAN -E 'say CPAN->VERSION' 1.9463 This appears not to have been a problem with 1.9462, which shipped with Perl 5.13.8.
I have also filed ticket 82578 in rt.perl.org. See http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=82578 for the details.
Thank you. This has been fixed in 1.94_64 on CPAN and merged to blead.
