Personally I've never used perl for anything, and I never will, if using cpan is a reflection of how things are done in the perl world. This is horribly, horribly, horribly messy compared to the user experience of e.g. pip. I mean, the default solution to uninstalling a module is to find out all the files that cpan installed and then manually remove them? Well, I guess I better grab "stat" and start hunting then.
