in reply to CPAN Useless on OS X

When I recently updated my mac laptop to 10.8.5 ("Mountain Lion", I think?), I found that the Perl upgrade that came with it was (of course) not able to run a lot of my scripts, because a lot of cpan modules had to be reinstalled into the new perl lib directories.

And in order to get those modules installed, I had to install the OSX Xcode package, which includes things like "make" and so on. Are you sure that "make" is currently available on your mac?

[Discipulus]: ah! thanks shmem it works in strawberry 5.24
[shmem]: ah. Introduced in 5.22.0, see perl5220delta
[Discipulus]: if so the previous error is a bit misleading, anyway
[shmem]: well, previous to that << was always treated as the left-shift operator
[Eily]: or the here-doc operator
[Eily]: which is actually how it is parsed in this case
[shmem]: older versions of perl can't guess that "use of <<>> may be implemented someday" :D
Discipulus how much wise my brothers are? ;=)
[karlgoethebier]: thanks ;-
