Re: Puzzling error when using ActivePerl.

in reply to Puzzling error when using ActivePerl.

I wonder if there might be some config left from previous install, such as ppm source and local ppm db.

Been a long time since I have used ActiveState... Just a thought...

guess I would check ActivePerl 5.18 Documentation -> Setup if you have not done so already.

A bit more info would help too. What OS? 32/64 bit? Update from version?

Hope that is helpful...

[1nickt]: kgb not quite as simple as ... and ...; are interchangeable. There are edge cases, shown in perlsyn.
[1nickt]: Hm well actually I guess it's not the trailing semi-colon that's at issue there, it's disambiguation between the ellipsis and the binary flip-flop
[1nickt]: Although the example given does not produce an error as stated, on my perl.
[1nickt]: perl -wE 'say for map { ... } 1..3;' # "Unimplemented at -e line 1" ... <c>perlsyn says that should throw a syntax error...
[karlgoethebier]: 1nickt: "Edge cases..." Yes, it seems so. Thanks Nick
