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
and i still don't understand what auto is.
