Reinstalling Perl.

Monday, October 26th, 2009

The break in my blogging was to start a new job.  It’s kept me incredibly busy.  I’m now a “Senior Infrastructure Architect” and being paid to write and maintain complex Perl scripts.  It means lots more things in Perl to learn and see, but may limit what I can blog about, as I have to be careful of the NDA.  I’m going to try and get back to this blog, though.

I reinstalled Perl the other day.  It was no trouble; it came with my Linux distribution.

Then I had to reinstall all the missing modules.

That should be easy!  I typed ‘autobundle’ in CPAN before I upgraded, and it wrote out a Bundle file.  All should be well!  I should just have to type “perl -MCPAN -e ‘install Bundle::Snapshot_2009_09_09 and let it go do what it needs to do.

Pity it doesn’t work that well.
