Get CPAN to work or try ActiveState instead
Authored by: books on Jul 27, '09 11:51:12PM

We have 40+ Macs all using Perl. When we need to update Perl or load a new module from CPAN, it has to be a quick procedure and must happen concurrently on all Macs.
We had many problems using CPAN over the years and tried various fixes like the one mentioned in this hint. But the worst is that each Mac needed it's own adjustments - there was never a single solution to fit all.

Finally we move to ActiveState Perl (which we knew from our Windows machines) and now Perl works and updates flawlessly. I recommend it for all Perl users on Mac.
