Uninstalling on OSX (Tiger)

Posted by Stewsburntmonkey on 2007-04-02 19:34

I'm trying to uninstall ActivePerl on OSX (Tiger), but there is no file in the /Library/Receipt folder for it. Can anyone give me some helping getting this uninstalled?

Hi,

You should have a /Library/Receipts/ActivePerl-5.8.pkg directory. I just checked the bill of materials in mine and it shows that everything is installed under /usr/local/ActivePerl-5.8, so deleting that directory and its contents should do the trick.

You may also want to peek through ~/Library for any ActivePerl entries in your prefs and application support.

Cheers,
