Stopping the cpan shell from fetching the modules list

    Almost every time I use the cpan shell to search for some
    modules, it downloads the list of authors and modules. I'm on
    dialup, and this takes some time, and it annoys me.

    How do I tell the cpan shell not to do this?

    I don't think there's an official way, but I'd be amazed if touch-ing
    the relevant files didn't fool it.
