in reply to DynaLoader and PL_sv_undef...

Per the reply i got to this node, i suggest re-running the build with the POLLUTE=1 option, like :
$ perl Makefile.PL POLLUTE=1

from the frivolous to the serious

    Thanks for the above advice. I had rebuilt the modules I was using.

    The thing I don't get is why the installation I had made worked in the first place (unless something about the environment changed between the time of installation and yesterday).

    I am using XML::Twig as one of the modules and conveniently enought XML::Parser allows you to build with a local installation of the expat library. However the interesting thing I am encountering now is a message about what I assume is deferencing, disallowing the use of $digit in this case $1.

    I haven't had this sort of trouble on servers running more recent installations of perl so I am sending polite emails to its administrators telling them to update their perl installation (Currently runs 5.004_5 on debian, I don't know whether mod_perl is installed).
    If worse comes to worse I was thinking of persuading my client to change their account to one of the hosts I use.

    Then I got to thinking, it's probably not a good idea, but with all of this tainting of environment variables that people have been doing, it is a possibility to create my own installation of perl at the version I require in the user's directory. This also depends on the amount of space allocated for the account. Tell me are these just the thoughts of an over caffienated, sleep deprived maniac....

[erix]: ah, thanks Discipulus
[1nickt]: erix perhaps you could kindly point out your technique to roho and everyone will be happy.
[Discipulus]: but i'm also animalist, so i' hirted by 1nickt's sig: The way forward always starts with a mammal test... grin..
[erix]: I might if I did remember. It's probably somewhere in the site docs
[uhClem]: I don't favor that sort of thing around here but the place for our politics is wherever we live.
[uhClem]: And besides, the objection to it was off-topic.
[Discipulus]: 1nickt hide signature is a positive action; i think is not a solution here
[erix]: my objection to sigs is just that they take screen space. ( Some monks would have *several* slogans underneath a 1-liner reply )
