/usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade is a great tool for managing software and dependencies. Install it, read the man pages, and do: portupgrade -rf perl That's if you're using perl from the ports collection. It will rebuild all apps that require perl. -- Joshua To live is always desirable. -- Eleen the Capellan, "Friday's Child", stardate 3498.9 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
