in thread calling perl program from C++

well that works, but now my other perl programs give me the following error
Can't locate Date/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/per +l5/site_perl/5.15.2/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.15.2 +/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.15.2/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.15.2 .) +
I went into CPAN and ran force install Date::Manip but it doesn't seem to work...any suggestions....I had it working before I ran the force install ExtUtils::Embed

    ExtUtils::Embed is part of the perl distro. You told cpan to force the installation of Perl. God knows what effect that had, but I'm not going to try it to find out.

      well the error message I get is
      Building Date-Manip !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! +!! ERROR: Can't create '/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.15.2/Date' Do not have write permissions on '/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.15. +2/Date' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! +!! at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.15.2/Module/Build/ line 3574 SBECK/Date-Manip-6.25.tar.gz ./Build install -- NOT OK Failed during this command: SBECK/Date-Manip-6.25.tar.gz : install NO

        I doubt you can uninstall it. You surely clobbered something of value. You might need to reinstall it.

        In your case, I think you need to try to revert your installation back to what your distro had installed using your distro's package manager.
