Hello all,

I was trying to install Bioperl on my redhat linux (EL) using CPAN. but CPAN
shows this problem.


[root at HX342SBC054 Desktop]# cpan
Terminal does not support AddHistory.

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601)
ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')

cpan> get bioperl

cpan>

Can anyone give me direction  how to configure cpan again or how to install
BioPerl on linux with its complete dependencies. Because I think I have a
problem in CPAN configuration.

Regards,
Prateek
