in reply to Debugging module version conflicts

What do you get when you run:
perl -MTime::HiRes -e "print $Time::HiRes::XS_VERSION"
perl -MTime::HiRes -e "print $Time::HiRes::VERSION"
Looking at, it seems to me that $XS_VERSION and $VERSION should be the same, and I therefore expect that the above two commands both produce the same output - and that the output is an error message very similar to the one you reported.

That being the case, it would appear that the object version (ie the version of the dll/so) is 1.86, whereas the version of the '.pm' file is 1.66.

This usually means that there was a botched install of the module at some stage .... or perhaps a botched install of ActivePerl. (You haven't perchance installed build 819 over the top of an earlier 5.8 build ?).

Mind you, I have no experience of eclipse/EPIC ...

    Hi Rob,

    one problem is it all works fine localy on the command line ...

    C:\Perl\lib\Time>set PERL_DL_DEBUG=1 C:\Perl\lib\Time>perl -MTime::HiRes=usleep -le "usleep 10;\ print $Time::HiRes::VE +RSION;\ print $Time::HiRes::XS +_VERSION" loaded (C:/Perl/lib C:/Perl/site/lib ., \lib) DynaLoader::bootstrap for Time::HiRes (auto/Time/HiRes/HiRes.dll) 1.66 1.66 C:\Perl\lib\Time>perl -v This is perl, v5.8.7 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread (with 7 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) Copyright 1987-2005, Larry Wall Binary build 813 [148120] provided by ActiveState http://www.ActiveSta ActiveState is a division of Sophos.

    problem lies somewhere in the integration between my local Perl and something Eclipse/EPIC is snaffling from the CVS repo. I am trying to persuade Eclipse to set the PERL_DL_DEBUG env variable as almut suggested then perhaps I can find from where it is bringing in the wrong XS. Unfortunately my Eclipse debug dialogue is missing the 'Environment' tab.

      You could also set it from within your script, e.g.

      #!/usr/bin/perl BEGIN { $ENV{PERL_DL_DEBUG} = 1 } use Time::HiRes; # ...
