in thread broke my perl? :(

I tried installing latest perl release (5.12.1) from source but /usr/bin/perl is still the script I copied there. Maybe I have to remove it and then install perl again? Maybe perl sees the file still exists during installation and leaves it instead of overwriting it?

apt-get is still healthy and running.

    Don't do this, why aren't you reinstalling the version of Perl shipped with Ubuntu via the methods previously suggested?

      sry, missed that post.
