hay , thanks for the reply, when running from the CPAN prompt i am now getting the warning;
"could not locate your pod2man program. please make sure your pod2man program is in your PATH before u execute make."
then the make fails with the error;
Makefile:94: ***missing seperator .stop.
/usr/bin/make --NOT OK
i have checked to see if pod2man is in the PATH with the cmd "which pod2man" and i get the output "/usr/bin/pod2man" so i'm assuming it is indeed in the PATH.
i've run the cmd "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/pod2man" and then i then get the shell to re-read its init file by typing the following "source ~/.bashrc" just in case, but this makes no difference...so now i completely stumped...again...
