bootstrap parameter

useopenid has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

What is a "bootstrap parameter"? When I google it, all I see are either specific module conflicts from the all too common "does not match bootstrap parameter" error or a vague "installed version of perl" reference. Perl's got an almost overly specific method of handling versioning - why isn't it finding the right module for the version of perl that's being used? Thanks!

    First, take a look at:

    DynaLoader.

    Second, take a look at the bootstrap() function. If the Perl-space version number doesn't match the version number in the XS code generated by xsubpp, it'll croak with the error message.

    Because you didn't copy the right file in the right place or something like that?
