CPAN: Terminal does not support GetHistory (No ReadLine support)

Surprised to see these messages come up again, I thought this had gone away in the 90's.

Disk is cheap now; why not just include all these packages?

Or at least:  grab my personal [developer] profile, see all the packages I have installed,
offer to display them for me.
Show me which I use frequently, a web page with statistics and links to latest news...

In case I come across this again, I will note:
Terminal does not support GetHistory
Terminal does not support AddHistory

if you are using a 'straight' CPAN system:

install Term::ReadLine::Gnu

linux, as a package:
sudo apt-get install libterm-readline-gnu-perl
