Unfortunately, time does not allow.

To carry on with blue_cowdawg's apt analogy, you've basically asked "I have no knowledge of driving, so please forgive ... I need to get across the country, and was given this car. How do I start it?" Once someone has pointed out how to put the key in the ignition, turn it, and press the gas pedal, you've ignored the advice to learn how to drive and navigate, and just stuck a brick on the accelerator while you hop into the back seat to connect to the office on your 3G-enabled laptop.

As you might be able to guess, this does not bode well.

Sometimes....

you don't have time NOT to learn.

Make sure your management is aware of that before they give you instructions that will result not only in a crash down the line, but with even less time to adapt and learn things to resolve it.

[ambrus]: thezip: is Activestate Perl usable for your scenario instead?
[MidLifeXis]: Yeah, --notest is good, not sure I would do --force.
[thezip]: It fails 2/10 tests in that group. What are the ramifications if I force it? What should I look for for?
[thezip]: I've migrated from ActiveState to Strawberry. No going back...
[thezip]: I'll try the --notest arg first when I get back from meetings (after lunch).
[thezip]: Thanks guys for your comments! :-)
[1nickt]: Quick survey: has anyone used or even heard of autobox?
[Corion]: thezip: I would expect some (fancier?) numeric formatting to fail from these test failures
[1nickt]: ( Sometimes when idle I browse remote corners of the code repo at $work ... usually this yields knowledge of projects to decline and coworkers to avoid ... )
[LanX]: sure
