I need to install something with cpan like this:

cpan foo::zooph

The problem is that I am asked to type in "yes" or press enter more than a hundred times!  

Can I make cpan auto-confirm everything?

Try setting PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT like so:

PERL_MM_USE_DEFAULT=1 perl -MCPAN -e 'install foo::zooph'

It should make CPAN answer the default to all prompts
