in reply to New to PERL but how is this better than DOS?

Dear Kevin,

Solaris is one of the platforms of choice for Perl, you should have no trouble installing it with the following commands (run as root, and assuming you've downloaded the source to the latest release, currently 5.8.8):

bunzip2 stable.tar.bz2 # may require installation from sunsite tar -xf stable.tar cd perl-5.8.8 # adjust as appropriate configure -des && make all test install

and you shall see, it is better than DOS.

[Corion]: Discipulus: I think Module::Corelist ( or corelist ) can tell you that
[Corion]: Meh - Module::CoreList
[choroba]: Just use List::Util 1.29
[choroba]: Be kind to people using old Perl with newer version of the module
[Corion]: But why not simply specify 'List::Util' => 1.29 in your prerequisites? People might install a more recent version of the module into their Perl
[Corion]: (what choroba said)
