I'm not a perl guy but I need to make something run that relies on the

This Google search may prove of help:


A few notes:

1. I was able to successfully run "perl Makefile.PL ; make ; make test" on
x86-32 Mandriva Cooker here.

2. Since you're on CentOS, you may need to install some packages to get Perl
modules to build. Moreover, the last release of CentOS still has perl-5.8.8
which has been end-of-lifed. You may wish to use
http://search.cpan.org/dist/App-perlbrew/ to install a more recent perl there.

3. The last release of http://search.cpan.org/dist/File-BSDGlob/ was from
1999. Maybe you should replace the functionality that it provides for your
code with File::Glob's bsd_glob.

I also have versions of this code in COBOL.NET, Intercal, PDP-10 Assembly, J,
APL, Windows NT 4.0 Batch script and Autocad Lisp - I'm sure you can handle
all of them because none of them is Perl. ;-).
