in reply to Failure Installing Net::HTTP

Hi, Net::SSLeay and openssl library issues are a common problem on Mac OS X. Google for many tutorials.

I recommend using homebrew to install openssl if you are not already, and I very strongly recommend that you do not attempt to update the system Perl or libraries on OS X. You should get and install a separate perl and libraries for your own development work. (You'll still need to create the openssl symlinks though.)

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately I don't quite follow your response.

    I'm not attempting to update the system PERL or libraries, rather I was trying to generate up to date local copies of the modules that I listed within a local library using the cpanminus and the Perl local::lib module. To do this I used the following commands (per the iplayer installation guide.

    curl -L "" | perl - -l ~/perl5 App::cpanminus local:: +lib eval `perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib` echo 'eval `perl -I ~/perl5/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib`' >> ~/.bash_profil +e

    Can you expand on how the NET::SSLeay and Openssl libraries relate to the problem with Net::HTTP?

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
