Subject [users@httpd] CPAN cannot update some modules; example Encode
Date Wed, 15 Jul 2009 18:29:23 GMT
Observe the following typescript from a Gentoo Linux system.  The
module encode is currently at version 2.12, and I would like to
upgrade it to the current CPAN version, which is 2.35.  But when I try
to do that, CPAN cannot find the module.  This happens on a number of
others as well, all of them unqualified so far (no '::' in the names).
 What gives?

cpan[2]> m Encode
Module id = Encode
    DESCRIPTION  Character Encodings Handler
    CPAN_USERID  DANKOGAI (Dan Kogai <>)
    CPAN_FILE    D/DA/DANKOGAI/Encode-2.35.tar.gz

    MANPAGE      Encode - character encodings
    INST_FILE    /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i686-linux-thread-multi/

cpan[3]> u Encode
No modules found for Encode
