	   $verbose = $conf->get_conf( 'verbose' );
	   $conf->set_conf( verbose => 1 );

	   ### values in 'program' section
	   $editor = $conf->get_program( 'editor' );
	   $conf->set_program( editor => '/bin/vi' );

DESCRIPTION
       This module contains defaults and heuristics for configuration information for CPANPLUS.
       To change any of these values, please see the documentation in "CPANPLUS::Configure".

       Below you'll find a list of configuration types and keys, and their meaning.

CONFIGURATION
   Section 'conf'
       hosts
	   An array ref containing hosts entries to be queried for packages.

	   An example entry would like this:

	       {   'scheme' => 'ftp',
		   'path' => '/pub/CPAN/',
		   'host' => 'ftp.cpan.org'
	       },

       allow_build_interactivity
	   Boolean flag to indicate whether 'perl Makefile.PL' and similar are run interactively
	   or not. Defaults to 'true'.

       allow_unknown_prereqs
	   Boolean flag to indicate that unresolvable prereqs are acceptable.  If "true" then
	   only warnings will be issued (the behaviour before 0.9114) when a module is
	   unresolvable from any our sources (CPAN and/or "custom_sources"). If "false" then an
	   unresolvable prereq will fail during the "prepare" stage of distribution installation.
	   Defaults to "true".

       base
	   The directory CPANPLUS keeps all its build and state information in.  Defaults to
	   ~/.cpanplus. If File::HomeDir is available, that will be used to work out your "HOME"
	   directory. This may be overridden by setting the "PERL5_CPANPLUS_HOME" environment
	   variable, see CPANPLUS::Config::HomeEnv for more details.

       buildflags
	   Any flags to be passed to 'perl Build.PL'. See "perldoc Module::Build" for details.
	   Defaults to an empty string.

       cpantest
	   Boolean flag to indicate whether or not to mail test results of module installations
	   to "http://testers.cpan.org". Defaults to 'false'.

       cpantest_mx
	   String holding an explicit mailserver to use when sending out emails for
	   "http://testers.cpan.org". An empty string will use your system settings. Defaults to
	   an empty string.

       debug
	   Boolean flag to enable or disable extensive debuggging information.	Defaults to
	   'false'.

       dist_type
	   Default distribution type to use when building packages. See "cpan2dist" or
	   "CPANPLUS::Dist" for details. An empty string will not use any package building
	   software. Defaults to an empty string.

       email
	   Email address to use for anonymous ftp access and as "from" address when sending
	   emails. Defaults to an "example.com" address.

       enable_custom_sources
	   Boolean flag indicating whether custom sources should be enabled or not. See the
	   "CUSTOM MODULE SOURCES" in "CPANPLUS::Backend" for details on how to use them.

	   Defaults to "true"

       extractdir
	   String containing the directory where fetched archives should be extracted. An empty
	   string will use a directory under your "base" directory. Defaults to an empty string.

       fetchdir
	   String containing the directory where fetched archives should be stored. An empty
	   string will use a directory under your "base" directory. Defaults to an empty string.

       flush
	   Boolean indicating whether build failures, cache dirs etc should be flushed after
	   every operation or not. Defaults to 'true'.

       force
	   Boolean indicating whether files should be forcefully overwritten if they exist,
	   modules should be installed when they fail tests, etc. Defaults to 'false'.

       histfile
	   A string containing the history filename of the CPANPLUS readline instance.

       lib An array ref holding directories to be added to @INC when CPANPLUS starts up. Defaults
	   to an empty array reference.

       makeflags
	   A string holding flags that will be passed to the "make" program when invoked.
	   Defaults to an empty string.

       makemakerflags
	   A string holding flags that will be passed to "perl Makefile.PL" when invoked.
	   Defaults to an empty string.

       md5 A boolean indicating whether or not sha256 checks should be done when an archive is
	   fetched. Defaults to 'true' if you have "Digest::SHA" installed, 'false' otherwise.

       no_update
	   A boolean indicating whether or not "CPANPLUS"' source files should be updated or not.
	   Defaults to 'false'.

       passive
	   A boolean indicating whether or not to use passive ftp connections.	Defaults to
	   'true'.

       prefer_bin
	   A boolean indicating whether or not to prefer command line programs over perl modules.
	   Defaults to 'false' unless you do not have "Compress::Zlib" installed (as that would
	   mean we could not extract ".tar.gz" files)

       prefer_makefile
	   A boolean indicating whether or not prefer a "Makefile.PL" over a "Build.PL" file if
	   both are present. Defaults to 'true', unless the perl version is at least 5.10.1 or
	   appropriate versions of Module::Build and CPANPLUS::Dist::Build are available.

       prereqs
	   A digit indicating what to do when a package you are installing has a prerequisite.
	   Options are:

	       0   Do not install
	       1   Install
	       2   Ask
	       3   Ignore  (dangerous, install will probably fail!)

	   The default is to ask.

       shell
	   A string holding the shell class you wish to start up when starting "CPANPLUS" in
	   interactive mode.

	   Defaults to "CPANPLUS::Shell::Default", the default CPANPLUS shell.

       show_startup_tip
	   A boolean indicating whether or not to show start up tips in the interactive shell.
	   Defaults to 'true'.

       signature
	   A boolean indicating whether or not check signatures if packages are signed. Defaults
	   to 'true' if you have "gpg" or "Crypt::OpenPGP" installed, 'false' otherwise.

       skiptest
	   A boolean indicating whether or not to skip tests when installing modules.  Defaults
	   to 'false'.

       storable
	   A boolean indicating whether or not to use "Storable" to write compiled source file
	   information to disk. This makes for faster startup and look up times, but takes extra
	   diskspace. Defaults to 'true' if you have "Storable" installed and 'false' if you
	   don't.

       timeout
	   Digit indicating the time before a fetch request times out (in seconds).  Defaults to
	   300.

       verbose
	   A boolean indicating whether or not "CPANPLUS" runs in verbose mode.  Defaults to
	   'true' if you have the environment variable "PERL5_CPANPLUS_VERBOSE" set to true,
	   'false' otherwise.

	   It is recommended you run with verbose enabled, but it is disabled for historical
	   reasons.

       write_install_log
	   A boolean indicating whether or not to write install logs after installing a module
	   using the interactive shell. Defaults to 'true'.

       source_engine
	   Class to use as the source engine, which is generally a subclass of
	   "CPANPLUS::Internals::Source". Default to "CPANPLUS::Internals::Source::Memory".

       cpantest_reporter_args
	   A hashref of key => value pairs that are passed to the constructor of
	   "Test::Reporter". If you'd want to enable TLS for example, you'd set it to:

	     { transport       => 'Net::SMTP::TLS',
	       transport_args  => [ User => 'Joe', Password => '123' ],
	     }

   Section 'program'
       editor
	   A string holding the path to your editor of choice. Defaults to your $ENV{EDITOR},
	   $ENV{VISUAL}, 'vi' or 'pico' programs, in that order.

       make
	   A string holding the path to your "make" binary. Looks for the "make" program used to
	   build perl or failing that, a "make" in your path.

       pager
	   A string holding the path to your pager of choice. Defaults to your $ENV{PAGER},
	   'less' or 'more' programs, in that order.

       shell
	   A string holding the path to your login shell of choice. Defaults to your $ENV{SHELL}
	   setting, or $ENV{COMSPEC} on Windows.

       sudo
	   A string holding the path to your "sudo" binary if your install path requires super
	   user permissions. Looks for "sudo" in your path, or remains empty if you do not
	   require super user permissions to install.

       perlwrapper
	   DEPRECATED

	   A string holding the path to the "cpanp-run-perl" utility bundled with CPANPLUS, which
	   is used to enable autoflushing in spawned processes.
