MIssing package in new versions (Bot-BasicBot)

As per this ( which is not up to date to 5.24, but it shows Bot-BasicBot (IRC bot framework) is dropped from 5.22 (and not showing up for me in 5.24). I'd use 5.20, but the community version is no longer downloadable. The log from 5.22 build shows, to my amateur eyes, the build was ok, but the test run over time and the job was aborted? Are there any options to download 5.20 again, or otherwise get Bot-BasicBot installed?

PerlApp created executable not running with nonexec permission on /tmp directory


We are using PerlApp to create freestanding executable from perl script.
When the executable built with PerlApp runs, it extracts its dynamic object files in the /tmp/pdk directory. However, it is not working on those systems which have some security permission like nonexec and non writable on /tmp directory.

Our application run on different ports and the problem is same on Window,Linu and AIX platform.

License question for research use

Would use of ActivePerl for life science research (running the Trans-Proteomic Pipeline software) on a US government campus fall under the community license or would a business/enterprise license be required?


-Tom - Error long directories

I have already limited the directory length to 230 character which is far below the 260 character limit. It appears that the addition of the "../../.." text is the issue. Is there something that can be done to better code this section of to not add length to the path?

This current code implementation seems to be impacted by the number of levels coupled with the overall length of the path.

Compile SQLite with ICU (International Components for Unicode)

SQLite only understands upper/lower case for ASCII characters by default. The LIKE operator is case sensitive by default for unicode characters that are beyond the ASCII range.

Hello due to this (default) limitation in SQLite there can occur some problems with using the LIKE operator. Is it possible for you to include SQLite compiled with ICU support on Windows?

ActivePerl 5.22.2 does not register dlls on Win7

On Win7 I installed AP 5.24 then found I had to use 5.22. So I uninstalled 5.24 (unused) and installed ActivePerl- When I ran my perl script from the command line I received an error that perl524.dll was missing. I don't know what is still looking for perl524. This is when I searched the registry and found no dlls were registered. I did find some 'perl' entries that did point to the AP folder.

I also found that I have perl5 in Git and Anaconda on this PC.

Is AP not compatible with these?
