My FC10 server dev box has multiple versions of perl which I use for testing.  My question is how can I manage each version's modules with MCPAN commands from shell.  It seems that the program is bound to the original version that I installed.  I have done a bit of research but for some reason something I think would be common isn't documented well or not that I can find.  Any help would be great.

How are you running cpan? Try running with an explicit Perl path. The CPAN module is with each distro. Keep in mind if you have multiple Perl distros, then you cant really managed it (that I am aware of) using the cpan script (/usr/bin/cpan) but you need to run the explicit Perl interpreter that you want to update.

/usr/whatever1/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell

/usr/whatever2/bin/perl -MCPAN -e shell
