    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out how to load modules that I don't already have.
    I tried loading module Test, and I kept getting an error with the
    nmake.exe that was being used (running on Win98 here). I found a
    different version in my MS VC++ directories and replaced the path it was
    using with the VC++ one. Now, I don't get the errors, however, it gets
    to the point of writing the .packlist and just hangs, goes no further.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's what I have from the DOS window:
    ========================================================

    BTW: the above was generated by the command:

    perl -MCPAN -e "install Test"

    BTW, thanks to Martin Thurn for helping me out with this.
    Instead of putting the install w/in the -e option, he suggested:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell
    CPAN> install <module>

    This worked just fine.

    Thanks again :)
