in reply to Weak references are not implemented

I have this problem on ActivePerl 5.8.8 (build 820). Is there no hope?
The latest version, 1.19 is installed. Doing a forced reinstall hasn't helped.

    Earlier and later ActiveState builds of Perl 5.8.8 both support weaken:

    Build 817:

    >perl -e"use Scalar::Util qw( weaken );" >

    Build 824:

    >perl -e"use Scalar::Util qw( weaken );" >

    So either

    • ActiveState messed up for build 820.,
    • you have a botched install (Util.dll isn't in lib/auto/List/ or site/lib/auto/List/), or
    • something is causing perl to be unable to locate Util.dll in lib/auto/List/ or site/lib/auto/List/

      Yes, going to Windows activeperl 5.10 (build 1004) resolved this issue. Thanks.
