Re^4: Installing external libraries for perlbrew perl

in reply to Re^3: Installing external libraries for perlbrew perl
in thread Installing external libraries for perlbrew perl

$PATH gives me
-bash: /Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/bin:/Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/perls +/perl-5.14.1/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X1 +1/bin: No such file or directory
I think I'm getting somewhere now. I added the following line to my bash profile
export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
That also changes my perl version to the one in /opt/local/bin but I can invoke cpan with
sudo /Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.1/bin/perl5.14.1 -MCPA +N -e shell
Now when I try to install GD it nearly succeeds, failing 1 test out of 13 which seems to be something to do with the JPEG library. I'll have to figure that out tomorrow as I'm exhausted now. Thanks for the help.

    Well, it's a start. But there's more you should consider/discover before going on a Module install(ing) frenzy. :) One thing that appears to me, out of place

    -bash: /Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/bin:/Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/perls +/perl-5.14.1/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X1 +1/bin: No such file or directory ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    The "No such file or directory" shouldn't be there. I think a little more investigation of your ENVironment is probably in order. Just so you know exactly where you stand, at any given moment.

    Well. Take care.

    Yes. What say about me, is true.
    
      The "No such file or directory" shouldn't be there.

      Well, the "No such file or directory" was only there, because you told bangor to do $PATH, as a result of which the shell tried to run a program named "/Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/bin:/Users/user/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.14.1/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/X11/bin", which of course doesn't exist  ;)

      A more direct way to find out the contents of PATH would've been to run echo $PATH

        Thanks Eliya. That's exactly correct.

        ++ to you for catching me on it. :)

        Yes. What say about me, is true.
