I went to test bioperl-live and Build.PL started updating
modules in my perl install w/o prompting me, frightening! I
really need to test modules and other groups here need to
test them before they're updated so we don't break anything
when some module's api changes.
I did svn co of bioperl-live then
perl Build.PL PREFIX=/scratch/bioperl-live
saw some output including
"I think you ran Build.PL directly, so will use CPAN to install prerequisites on demand"
then it went to cpan and tried updating Data::Stag in
my perl install.
How can I ask it to prompt me before updating modules ( so
I can put the updated versions somewhere for it to find
that isn't the live perl install )? Should I be running
