I'm having trouble trying to install Perl modules from CPAN using
lucid's cpan command. The trouble is that I can't get cpan configured.
I start cpan and it starts asking lots of config questions and then it
gets to a bit about proxies and immediately afterwards goes weird:
If you're accessing the net via proxies, you can specify them in the
CPAN configuration or via environment variables. The variable in
the $CPAN::Config takes precedence.
Your ftp_proxy? 
Your http_proxy? 
Your no_proxy? 
CPAN needs access to at least one CPAN mirror.
As you did not allow me to connect to the internet you need to supply
a valid CPAN URL now.
Please enter the URL of your CPAN mirror ^C
But it never asked me about connecting to the internet, so I have no
idea what it's on about!
Has anybody seen this before?
