You have sent a personal reply rather than to the list (or if
you did send to the list it hasn't come through yet).

That is way off the beam. The issue is a 32/64 bit one and can
be resolved by a perl version plist "Prefer-32-Bit". But that's
nasty thing to do IMHO.
Umm, you know the solution? Then why are you asking for help?
Or, you know of 'a' solution but don't share that with us so we
can help you find a better solution? You've got to put some
effort into helping us to help you. If you don't give us all the
facts that you know (or think) might be relevant, how do you
expect non-mind readers to assist?
The errors arise from a call 'use Mac::OSA;'. It's broken and I gather will
never be fixed.
I'm not the author, so can't say. What dit the author say?
Hmm, that's part of the Mac::Carbon distro. Doesn't surprise me
in the slightest that it's not getting ongoing love. There are
newer (better?) ways of doing things these days.
And from what I can tell; it's not broken at all. It's not
advertised as 64-bit compatible. Maybe your system is broken
since it doesn't have a 32-bit perl. You can compile for
yourself you know.
I have taken it out of the script and done the job another way.
Since we're still having to be mind-readers to know what your
ultimate goal is, and knowing that with Perl TIMTOWTDI almost
always holds true, a different solution doesn't surprise me.
I can take heaps of guesses at what you really wanted to do, but
that's not what you asked. I suggested some ways to solve the
question you asked.
