os / debian - mint - mate,
very interesting error message;
I put into the terminal;
localhost gary # /home/gary/Downloads/ActivePerl-220.127.116.113-i686-linux-glibc-2.3.6-296746/install.sh
(perl install error,)
env: perl/bin/perl: No such file or directory
I am among the folks who have seriously broken/missing documentation. My *perl* [and all the packages I've used so far, which isn't all that many of 'em] runs perfectly. But the documentation is decimated [as with everyone else, even the core-components section is missing]. The only "solution" I've seen is a vague-feeling comment that something must have gone wrong with the installation [even though *some* docs are installed, and the actual program is installed], and the fix is to reinstall. such is life...
I'm using perl v5.12.4 on a Win7 system
Backticks have stopped working. EG:
$cmd=`dir`; now returns a null string.
$cmd=`file.htm`; used to start the default browser on the named file. It no longer does anything.
System("dir"); similarly no longer works.
The commands work fine if entered on the command line or a batch file without perl.
Can anyone suggest a possible reason for this?
Is there some particular file responsible for handling backticks and system() which I might try to replace?
I am installing ActivePerl as part of software build on Amazon AWS. Is there a "response file" (yes, I agree with license terms, this is the installation directory, etc) that I could use to avoid manual installation?
I installed AS perl on my new Win7 machine, but it won't pass command line arguments to @ARGV.
I suspect it's a registry problem in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but my changes haven't fixed it.
Does anyone know the line to change, and what to put there?
I would like to use ActivePerl occasionally from USB Stick but don't want to install it permanently on a computer.
Is there no "portable" version available for download?
when i tried to install activeperl on my Debian 7 box I received the following error: "perl/bin/perl: 1: perl/bin/perl: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string"
Please advise how to fix.
Nevermind... Must have been a temporary thing.
The following links from http://www.activestate.com/activeperl/downloads point to non-existant files.
I installed ActivePerl under "C:\Program Files\" and when I run PPM it just doesn't update the repository, says there's a permission problem?
I installed it as the System user and have done everything to give Perl64 under "Program Files" read+write permissions, no use.
On the other hand, installing Perl64 directly under "C:\" doesn't have any of the above mentioned problems, just that it's better to maintain a proper hierarchy, hence installation under "C:\Program Files\".
Can someone help?
