in thread Installing WWW::Mechanize on AIX - The battle
Yes Perl 5.3 is severely old, and yes it is Oracle's private perl in AIX. I am sure they won't support external PMs (except DBD and DBI, or maybe not). I was able to successfully install a couple of external modules like XML::XPath and Net::Stomp to Oracle perl but WWW::Mechanize seems to have a whole lot of dependencies. I can use AIX's perl installation to get Mechanize in, but the problem is the job scheduler we use, uses Perl profile set for Oracle Perl only, so in order to be able to run a program using AIX perl we will end up creating a new profile.
