Hopefully everyone is having a happy Thanksgiving!
This one is a couple of years old now, but I hope you have had happy hunting!
Please don’t hurt me!
One of the biggest issues I have when I update my perl packages in clan is that it takes for ever to sit there and always answer y to all of the questions. It turns out that there is a way to answer the default answer always (which is what I was doing manually before). Before you run ‘upgrade’ simply type:
cpan> o conf prerequisites_policy ‘follow’
cpan> o conf build_requires_install_policy yes
cpan> o conf commit
and then go get a cup of coffee as it will be a while until it finishes.
