in thread Are there any major Perl issues with Mac OS X Lion?

Hi sundialsvc4 : it's been a few months but I wonder if you can help please? I want to use my own version of perl on Snow Leopard, so that CPAN etc. don't interfere with the pre-installed perl. (I've been using and CPANing the sys version over the last 4 years w/o incident, but I'd prefer to have my own perl to be on the safe side.) I downloaded and compiled perl 5.14 and that looks ok using it from batch - I just set my $PATH to see it first. However, I've been unable to get user _www to run cgi using the new version. I've tried editing apache's plist and/or setting up a plist in /Library/WebServer (which according to dscl is _www's home dir), restarting apache, restarting the whole machine. I've put a line in my cgi code to output $^V and it still says 5.10 (sys version which came with SL.) I've also Don't know if you could suggest anthing pls? TIA, Terry

    Hi sundialsvc4 - hmm, the perl version can be changed by changing the shebang, to e.g. /usr/local/bin/perl - I was hoping for a way to override that, or I'll have to change it when I check stuff out then remember to change it back before I check stuff in (live server is linux). So it could be just a nuisance, not a show stopper. Thanks, Terry.
