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.

    you mean reinstall Perl by running ExtUtils::Embed

      No, I meant reinstalling your distro's Perl. You overwrote it with 5.15.2, which is a development release on the way towards 5.16.

      In theory, you could possibly proceed with 5.15.2, but it probably has bugs.

        oh no, that explains it. I am working in ubuntu, so do I go through the software manager, remove all perl modules and reinstall
        why do they release development versions to mess up people's work and time....I cannot reinstall my original version because some dependencies have been established. Does anyone know how to fix this in ubuntu
