CPAN::Nox - Wrapper around CPAN.pm without using any XS module
perl -MCPAN::Nox -e shell;
This package has the same functionality as CPAN
.pm, but tries to
prevent the usage of compiled extensions during its own
execution. Its primary purpose is a rescue in case you upgraded perl
and broke binary compatibility somehow.
