Installing Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX with Perl v5.8.8by Arik123 (Sexton)
|on Mar 20, 2018 at 07:14 UTC||Need Help??|
Arik123 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm not absolutely sure this question belongs here. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX claims it needs Perl v5.10.0, but I have only v5.8.8 and my sysadmin is much too busy to upgrade. Is there any way to get this module running?
And another question. I have access to another system in which Perl v5.10.1 is installed, but Speadsheet::ParceXLSX isn't. I tried to install it (using local::lib), and failed. I think the problem is that Test::More and Test::Harness aren't installed. I tried to install them both (separately). Installing Test::More fails because it can't locate Test::Harness in @INC, and installing Test::Harness fails, generating many errors that it can't find Test::More in @INC... what's going on? I thought CPAN is supposed to install the the dependencies it needs (I tried the above installations with 'perl -MCPAN -e "install Test::More"'. my .bashrc contains the line 'eval $(perl -I$HOME/lib/perl5 -Mlocal::lib)').
uname -a gives:
Linux name.site.com 2.6.32-573.8.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Nov 10 18:01:38 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
in case it hints someone.
Thanks a lot!
