Forcing Bundle::Slash?

Anonymous Coward writes "Hi. This is a stupid question. I want to install Bundle-Slash-2.1.0 but what CPAN is fetching from the CPAN archives is Bundle-Slash-2.13. Is there a way to force the CPAN module to use a local Bundle-Slash-2.1.0 instead of what it is downloading from the Net? Thanks for any hints. Eloy -"

  • Why would you want to use a older version?

    It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
    • Well, BundleSlash-2.1.0 was the latest version when I asked this about a month or so ago. At that time the latest SlashBundle was not available on CPAN so doing "install BundleSlash" on the CPAN shell was installing an older bundle.

      I guess the more general question is: how do you install a bundle that is newer than what is available on CPAN?
      • 2.13 is the latest. If you want to install a Bundle that is not on CPAN yet, if you have the file, copy it into your .cpan/Bundle/ directory. If you don't have it, well, you wait for it to show up. :-)

        Note that sometimes won't download a newer one even if it is available, if you already have it downloaded. In that case, delete the file in .cpan/Bundle/ and try again.
