Another one? Okay.

Xcode I have already. I did what you said, and now "perl -v" says that the version has been upgraded. So yay for that! First progress in a long time. On the other hand, Bash now gives an error message in every new window:

-bash: export: `PATH#': not a valid identifier -bash: export: `install_latest_perl_osx.pl': not a valid identifier
So if you know what to do about that, that would also be great.

Now the "make" runs, with only a couple of warnings. When I try "make test", I get a bunch of errors, see below. According to the guide, I should probably not install the module. Anything that can be done to fix this?

If it means that the module is bad, I guess I could just try some other module. I'm guessing there are other modules that make pretty graphics things.

    The tests fail for me too. What I do is this: First, make sure that you have libgd installed:
    /opt/ActivePerl-5.14/bin/cpan
    Then at the shell prompt:
    cpan> notest install GD
    Try that, then let me know what happens. I've a few tricks up my sleeve:).
      The first command doesn't find the file. It seems that ActivePerl is somewhere else.

      I can try "make install" on the GD thing, but since it says I probably shouldn't, I'm guessing that I probably shouldn't.

      The warnings when I run "make" mention that something is wrong with gdlib:
      ld: warning in /usr/lib/libpng.dylib, file is not of required architecture

      I did install it - it wasn't easy to find, but I found something on
      http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gmod/Generic%20Genome%20Browser/libgd-MacOSX/20100406/
      so I installed that. Maybe that wasn't good enough. Can I get gdlib from somewhere else?

      Also, the new version is only working for one user. I would like all users to be able to use it.

        You can get libgd here.
