in reply to Error when using dbmopen.

Looks like you have at least parts of a second Perl on your system (MSys 5.8, I guess), and both seem to mix. Clean up your system, i.e. uninstall MSys correctly and completely, or uninstall ActivePerl and use MSys Perl.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

    While it may sound naive, do you have any suggestions on how I might "clean up" my machine? Are there any files and/or folders that I should recognize as being candidates for deletion? A new, and possibly related, problem:
    perl -e "use DB::File'

    results in a message saying the module could not be located yet attempting to install it via ppm results in another message saying there are no missing packages to install.

      There is no module named "DB::File" to be found anywhere, it doesn't exist
        my $previous_comment =~ s/DB::File/DB_File/;
