    I've been using CPAN for many years, and never had a problem, but I
    connected to CPAN this morning on a new install of RedHat AS 4 to
    upgrade and install perl modules. I had many timeouts, and after a
    while it finally started "install Bundle::CPAN". But the installation
    went bad and did not upgrade the bundle.

    Now when I issue "perl -MCPAN -e shell" it complains that it cannot
    find Cwd.pm and other *.pm files.

    I'm missing many files from my install. How can I repair this? Or,
    should I get the whole tar.gz and install to /usr/local? Thanks for
    any help.

    I solved the problem on my own. I forced an rpm install of the perl
    package, and it restored the missing files. Sorry to inconvenience
    anyone.
