Thanks for the hint. Even though the port skeleton for Perl got updated, /usr/ports/UPDATING told me that I had to do more to get Perl 5.8.5 working as the upgraded port. Here's what I did to upgrade Perl and set as standard port. cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8 make install clean rehash use.perl port I then ran "pkg_info -R perl-5.8.5" and got a report that all the p5-* ports and swatch were dependent on the Perl package. (UPDATING's port wizards had a magical incantation to find and reinstall the dependent ports, but I couldn't get it to work - so I used pieces of the incantation). Then I upgraded other ports that depend on Perl manually. portupgrade -f p5-\* portupgrade -f swatch Swatch worked after that. Thanks for your nudge in the right direction. There are a lot of brick walls to bang one's head against in a FreeBSD newbie's life. I appreciate your help! > > -- Irvine > > Henri _______________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
