RichardH has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm working in an environment where ActiveState's PerlEx technology is used in order to speed the execution of perl code. The perl interpreters, according to ActiveState's documentation, are supposed to check the last modification and last run dates of the perl code before the code is recompiled. If the last modification of the code is before the last run of the code, it is supposed to used a cached version of the code. However, I have noticed that when I make a change in a .pm file, the changes may not be visible for quite a while. Has anyone else noticed this behavior with ActiveState's products? I'm trying to determine if (a) this is a bug, (b)this is simply the way the system is expected to perform or (c) specific to my environment possibly due to the installation options or environmental variables or other software at our site. Any assistance would be invaluable. Thanks!
