[OSM-dev] [OT] installing CPAN modules

I'd like to listen closely into this too, as trying to install
XML::Parser (for fixcoastlines.pl) gave me similar errors about tests
failing and an inability to install.

Any advice on installing Cpan modules on the Mac? (Not having used
cpan before, or at most very little)


Cheers,
Dan
