problem adding perl 5.10 to path in leopard

Posted by mail08@flacco.com on 2008-08-24 19:20

The instructions in the 5.10 installation documentation for adding 5.10 permanently to path do not appear to be correct. Apparently, one must use a new method called "path_helper."

Has anyone successfully used this? I could not figure out how to make it work.

From the ActivePerl 5.10 documentation General Installation Notes":

OS X Configuration

To permanently add the directory to your PATH, add it to the .profile or .bash_profile file in the user's home directory. For example:

PATH=/usr/local/ActivePerl-5.10/bin:$PATH
PATH=/usr/local/ActivePerl-5.10/site/bin:$PATH
export PATH
