I think you may need to use a later version of ActivePerl as well (at least build 628 or later). I believe your problem is related to the overriding of CORE::GLOBAL::require by PerlApp. The require statement has both runtime and compiletime aspects, and in earlier versions the compiletime aspects are suppressed when require has been overriden.

The problem is that the statement

my $sel = new IO::Select $sock;

uses indirect object syntax. Directly above is the require statement:

require IO::Select;

With a non-overridden require, it will create the IO::Select package at compile time and the statement above is compiled as

my $sel = IO::Select->new($sock);

Without the compiletime definition of the IO::Select package, Perl compiles it as

my $sel = new($sock->IO::Select());

because the IO::Socket module had already defined a new() sub at this time.

Another "fix" would be to add a

use IO::Select;

line to the top of your script.

  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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.
