cpan> force install LWP
Running install for module LWP
Running make for G/GA/GAAS/libwww-perl-5.65.tar.gz
CPAN: Digest::MD5 loaded ok
Checksum for /home/Gerrit/.cpan/sources/authors/id/G/GA/GAAS/libwww-perl-5.65.tar.gz ok
Scanning cache /home/Gerrit/.cpan/build for sizes
Removing previously used /home/Gerrit/.cpan/build/libwww-perl-5.65 Going to build G/GA/GAAS/libwww-perl-5.65.tar.gz

This package comes with some sample programs that I can try
to install in /usr/bin.

   Note that you can avoid these questions by passing
   the '-n' option to 'Makefile.PL'.

Do you want to install lwp-request? [y] y
Do you want to install lwp-mirror? [y] y
Do you want to install lwp-rget? [y] y
Do you want to install lwp-download? [y] y

The lwp-request program will use the name it is invoked with to
determine what HTTP method to use.  I can set up alias for the most
common HTTP methods.  These alias are also installed in

Do you want to install the GET alias? [y] n
Do you want to install the HEAD alias? [y] n
Do you want to install the POST alias? [y] n

Checking for URI........... ok
Checking for HTML::Parser.. ok
Checking for MIME::Base64.. ok
Checking for Net::FTP...... ok
Checking for Digest::MD5 .. ok

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
