( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm a lowly web site admin rather than a real programmer, and I've built a nice shiny new Apache 2.0.64, perl 5.12.2, and mod_perl build for my developer friend, but some of his code doesn't run. I get "Can't locate object method "new" via package "LWP::Protocol::https::Socket" at ../../../cgi/".

If I troll through the code, it certainly looks like there's a "new"

This used to work in my last build, but I'm a but stuck now. I'm not even sure how to start resolving this issue. I don't expect someone to debug my program for me, but is there somewhere that I can start reading that would explain how I can resolve such dependency issues?

(bows respectfully)



Maybe this will reveal my mistake:

Modules originally installed in order using cpan, then the cpan directory is tarballed and I traverse the module directories doing a

$PERL_DIR/bin/perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=$PERL_DIR -n make clean $PERL_DIR/bin/perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=$PERL_DIR -n make make test make install

with the exception of the SSLeay modules which require me to specify the openssl path
