    Dear All,

    Greetings. I use strawberry perl on windows 7. I use command "perl-MCPAN -e shell" to

    install perl modules from CPAN. When I was installing Padre (Perl IDE) by issuing command

    cpan> install Padre

    and the process was in the middle then there was power trip due to which my PC rebooted. Now

    whenever I try to load perl shell (perl -MCPAN -e shell) on perl cmmand line (DOS) it gives

    following fatal error
