in reply to Question of the thing we call "Perl"

Here my suggestions, and I'll be glad to see yours:
  • A way to communicate with a machine
  • A way to communicate with other (?) human beings
  • A way to express ideas
  • A way to obfuscate ideas

[Corion]: Hi James!
[james28909]: I looked through the docs, and see that PerlApp::exe() is suppose to return this information but whenever i try to use this, i get the error "Undefined subroutine &PerlApp::exe called"
[james28909]: i just want to verify the integrity of the executables name each time it is run.
[Corion]: Weird. this documentation says what you say.
[Corion]: I assume you are experiencing this with your packaged program. Maybe also include PerlApp.pm in the packaging list?
[james28909]: has anyone else run into this problem? i have tried searching but have not returned many results
[james28909]: ah, good idea.
[Corion]: What does print $PerlApp::VERSION output?
