Do you remember which version of perl was the first one you ever used?
Version 1.0, released 12/18/1987. I think I unpacked it a few weeks later from the multiple Usenet parts, and built it.
What version are you using now?
When maintperl is being updated (as it has begun again recently), I daily run my "get.snap" script which does:
/usr/bin/rsync -av --delete rsync:// +.x/ /opt/perl/snap/MIRROR/
And then when I detect useful changes, I run /opt/perl/snap/src-sync-config:
#!/bin/sh cd /opt/perl/snap || exit 1 rsync -av --delete MIRROR/ src/ ## darnit I want one-level namespaces echo ... PATCHING src/hints/ ... perl -pi-DIST -e 's/\[2-6/\[2-9/' src/hints/ cd src || exit 1 PATH=/usr/bin:/bin ./Configure -des -Duseshrplib -Dusedevel \ -Uversiononly -Dprefix=/opt/perl/snap \ -Dlocincpth=/sw/include -Dloclibpth=/sw/lib \
followed by "make all test install" in the src directory. The last few days, "make test" fails on OSX, so I have to horse around doing the install manually.

Then I run "cpan-r", described in a recent magazine article of mine, to run the CPAN shell using Expect, executing the "r" command and automatically updating all out-of-date modules.

Do I get the job? {grin}

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • 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.
