Subject: CPAN HTML parsing broken
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 506b
The parsing of the fetched CPAN HTML is broken. CPAN seems to have swichted to "compressed" HTML with less newlines recently while the perlbrew code is relying heavily on those newlines being present for parsing the HTML. Please consider to following: - use the machine-readable list at for mirror selection - try to avoid using HTML parsing in other places and use machine-readable sources (if possible) - fix the HTML parsing if machine readable sources are not available
