I'd love to understand the interaction between perl versions, FreeBSD versions and perl modules.
Frinstance I have a 4.7 system with only the base system perl, and a number of perl modules from the ports collection. The perl modules seem to install themselves under /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/ and put the man pages under /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/man. Would this be different if I had perl 5.6 from ports installed and had done a "use.perl port" before installing them??? I note that on a 5.1 system under /usr/local/lib/perl5 there is both 5.00503 and 5.6.1 and site_perl and under site_perl there is 5.005 and 5.6.1. This seems kind of surprising given 5.x doesn't have a base system perl and the ports version is 5.6. I guess the real question is, if I move from base to ports version, do I have to uninstall and reinstall all the modules from ports? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
