[Bioperl-l] problem with bioperl install

Hello everyone-

Sendu - I took your advice but doing Install Bundle::CPAN did not take  
care of the dependencies. It still failed. See attached txt file with  
my terminal output. Does anyone have any idea how this might be?

If I wanted to wipe all perl from my computer and simply start over,  
how might this be accomplished?

Install Bundle::CPAN instead; that will take care of its dependencies  
and leave you in a good state to install BioPerl.

Alternatively, if using and updating CPAN turns into too much of a  
hassle, do it the 'hard way' (which is probably really the easier way):
