I asked that same question on the "FreeBSD-Ports" forum a few months ago; however, I never did receive a satisfactory answer. I believe it is readily apparent that it will not be included with the next release of FreeBSD; i.e., '7.1'. Since it does seem to work quite well under Linux, I was wondering if there was some fundamental flaw in FBSD that prevented it from working correctly here. Even so, failing to get a major project like Perl running properly in over a year on FBSD does not bode well for the OS. -- Jerry ges...@yahoo.com When everything is coming your way, you are probably in the wrong lane.
