I tried again, but this time Perl refused to connect to the internet. Sigh.

Perl is a disaster. On my first try using it, I muddled through a lot of crap to get CPAN up and running.
It ended up being this nonsense:
su perl -MCPAN -e shell install CPAN reload cpan install Digest::SHA Test::Pod::Coverage force install File::Basename install Email::LocalDelivery Getopt::Long Pod::Usage force install Email::Outlook::Message
The first force install takes an insane amount of carriage returns to work. I wonder if there's a
--stfu switch I could pass it. Holy crap, it takes forever to compile.
The final force install was necessary, and I don't know if it was a horrible thing to do or not.
I try to run it and I get:
perl -w msgconvert.pl YourMessage.msg
So that pretty much destroyed my attempt. My Google-fu wasn't good enough to come up with any other solutions. I gave up.
On my second try, I couldn't even get as far as my first. CPAN wasn't configured for net access anymore. I guess a good old PCLinuxOS update destroyed things.
Seriously, who in their right mind would release something that's not preconfigured for internet access. Isn't that the entire point of CPAN?
I Googled some more and came up with the same old crap.
