I'm stuck using a vender supplied version of Perl that works but doesn't seem to be configured correctly. A perl -v works, but perl -V complains about not finding Although /tmp exists, the /tmp/p561/* directories don't exist...

~/some/directory/perl/bin$ ./perl -v This is perl, v5.6.1 built for sun4-solaris Copyright 1987-2001, Larry Wall Perl may be copied only under the terms of either the Artistic License + or the GNU General Public License, which may be found in the Perl 5 source ki +t. Complete documentation for Perl, including FAQ lists, should be found +on this system using `man perl' or `perldoc perl'. If you have access to + the Internet, point your browser at, the Perl Home Pa +ge. ~/some/directory/perl/bin$ ./perl -V Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: /tmp/p561/lib/perl5/5.6.1/sun4-solaris /tmp/p561/lib/perl5/5.6.1 /tmp/p561/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/sun4-solaris /tmp/p561/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1 /tmp/p561/lib/perl5/site_perl .). BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

A quick Google didn't show much of a solution. Am I missing some environment variables or something?

Thoughts? Comments? Questions?

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
