( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm trying to use Devel::Cycle and Devel::GC::Helper to profile some code

Its not working, because Perl can't load auto/DBI/FIRSTKEY.al

Looking into things, I've noticed that I have very few things in my Perl/VERSION/auto and Perl/VERSION/PLATFORM/auto folders.

Looking at various news postings on the net, many people seem to have a auto/DBI directory. I do not.

Can someone please explain to me what /auto/ is ? Is it autoloader compiled stuff? Is it some XS thing? Is there a setting in my cpan conf or something that can get DBI to compile stuff there?

update I actually do have an auto/dbi directory. that was a stupid mistake. it only has these files though:

DBI.bs DBI.bundle DBIXS.h Driver.xst Driver +_xst.h Shell dbd_xsh.h dbi_sql.h dbipport.h + dbivport.h
and i still don't understand what auto is.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
