in reply to Perl on Sierra (Mac OS X 10.12.x): any issues?

Howdy!

I have been holding off on Sierra, but I had gone to El Capitan. I didn't run into any issues maintaining my Perl setup (non perlbrew) when I made that jump. I would not expect you to have any particular issues unless you are doing some really OS specific things that might change out from under you (whatever those might be). Or relying on some hypothetical capability that goes away in Sierra.

yours,
Michael

    G'day Michael,

    Thanks for the response. It's good to hear that you didn't encounter any problems with El Capitan.

    "... unless you are doing some really OS specific things ..."

    I don't really use the system's supplied applications except where I have to. I use Firefox instead of Safari; VLC instead of iTunes; Foxit instead of Preview; and so on. And, of course, as already stated, perlbrew Perl instead of system Perl.

    "I have been holding off on Sierra, ..."

    Assuming I do upgrade, which seems likely, it will happen in the next day or two. I'll report back with any issues and, if there were any, how I got around them.

    — Ken
