patches text-area

Patches are just stanzas in cpanminus client format, they are passed to cpanminus client as arguments. The reason you may want to use patches is to forcefully install some problematic cpan modules or install downgraded versions. Patches are the right way to do this. Once patches are applied you may comment them or prepend with --skip-satisfied flag. Check out for details.

Patches examples:

# any comments start with '#'
-f Math::Currency # forcefully installation
--skip-satisfied CGI DBI~1.2

You can set environment variables via "Jenkins/Configuration/Global properties/Environment variables" interface to adjust plugin behaviour.
