I do this occasionally when installing modules into multiple different perls. The issue is that cpanm writes to ~/.cpanm/build.log directly, and then just copies it into the proper place in ~/.cpanm/work/ once the process finishes. It seems like a better idea here would be to create ~/.cpanm/build.log as a symlink to the appropriate file in ~/.cpanm/work/ when the cpanm process starts, and then write to the file under ~/.cpanm/work/ directly.
Sounds good to me. This will fix the issue on Win32 where two instances can't write to one file.
win32 don't have symlink. how about copy the file when finished for win32?
It may not have a symlink but we actually do symlink already for latest-build.
Ah, it seems that symlink behave same as copy on win32. hehe.
Hi guys, has anyone written a patch for this yet? I can try writing one if there are no volunteers.
You can always give it a try :)
