Perl modules confusionby umeboshi (Acolyte)
|on Jun 25, 2009 at 08:56 UTC||Need Help??|
umeboshi has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am using ubuntu and I think I made a bit of a mess with modules installation and I would like to know how to clean it up. I installed some modules from the synaptic package manager and then tried to install additional modules which cannot be found there.
I installed some using cpan and some (same ones) manually into a self-made local folder. Since the newest versions of some modules are not working properly, I would like to clean up my modules installations and only install those (older versions) I need. So, my questions are:
1) How can I figure out which modules perl is using (from which folder, since I made such a mess)?
2) How can I clean up the modules installations and install older versions of the same modules?
Thanks for any comments, much appreciated!
