Subject: Initial CPAN setup - links[sic]/lynx
perl5 (revision 5.0 version 8 subversion 3) Linux ha2 2.6.9-1.6_FC2 When initially running perl -MCPAN on a system, it asks questions about where various programs are. One of these questions asks where your "links" program is. I believe it really means lynx, especially since it mentions it in the CPAN.pm file like 2642. :-) From the CPAN.pm file: line 2608: for $f ('links','ncftpget','ncftp','wget') { line 2617: if ($f eq "links"){ line 2618: $src_switch = " -source"; line 2641: ($f eq "links" ? line 2642: -s $asl_ungz # lynx returns 0 when it fails somewhere Thanks, charles
