in thread problem installing module Term::ReadLine::Gnu

mmhh, you're right. I do not satisfy this requirement. Haven't read the documentation well enough, apologies.
Just tried to install GNU Readline Library Version 2.1 but didn't manage to do that.
checking host system type... configure: error: can not guess host type +; you must specify one
I'm more of a perl user than programmer so I'm stuck here.

    I don't have any experience in trying to build the ReadLine library ... so I'm not very well qualified to be giving advice :-)

    But firstly, afaict, the latest version is 5.2 - and you would probably be better off trying to install that version (rather than 2.1). When they say that 2.1 is required, they really mean that "2.1 or later" is required.

    The actual error you got (which, I assume, was produced when running ./configure) would indicate that ./configure was unable to determine your OS/architecture. What does ./config.guess report ?

    Perhaps the ability to guess correctly has been enhanced in the latest version of Gnu ReadLine ?

    Is there, perchance, an RPM of a suitably recent version of Gnu ReadLine that you could install (thereby eliminating the need for you to build it yourself) ?

      Thanks for your replies. I did some more googling and looked for an RPM. I decided to let go. I see to many things of which I've no real idea what, while installing, they would do to my system.
      I'll check later this year in a quiet week if I see a chance of installing.
      Thanks again,
