[csw-users] Perl, CPAN, and CSWpm_termreadlineg

Installing pm_termradlineg breaks cpan, because it will quickly exit with a
message that it has run out of memory.  This is on a system with 32G and
the histfile was short, so the problem is elsewhere.  I think someone else
complained about it too.

My only recourse was to uninstall this module and forego command history
edits in cpan.

Of course there is still cpanm (
http://search.cpan.org/~miyagawa/App-cpanminus-1.5007/bin/cpanm ) which
will allow you to do everything in your favorite Unix shell, and thus take
advantage of your system-wide console readline command-history-edit
