Perl TM on Mac OSX
Of course I made sure that the Xcode 3.0 developer tools were installed from the shipped DVD, and amazingly enough a cpan frontend to the CPAN mirror servers was already installed together with the Perl 5.8.8 there.
Then the usual incantation:
Terminal does not support AddHistory.
cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7602)
ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')
cpan> install TM
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read /Users/rho/.cpan/Metadata

Running install for module TM
/usr/bin/make install -- OK
Some downloads and many test cases later, the package was installed, leaving me completely surprised. I was expecting havoc...
