Upgrade perl from 5.8.6 to 5.8.8 - help with upgrade
 
Hi all,

Perl N00b here in need of a bit of kind assistance!

I am attempting to upgrade Perl from 5.8.6 to 5.8.8 on Fedora Core 4

I have performed the following:

Run: perl -V to get the version (5.8.6)
Downloaded perl version 5.8.8 and untarred
Run: ./Configure -des -Uusethreads
Run: make
Run: make test
Run: make install

All goes well - how do i alter my installation to now use this version
of perl, as running perl -V returns the same version information?

Many thanks for any help!

Ben

That should already have happened. Check your path. Normally (but not
always), the new version is installed as /usr/bin/perl. What does
"which perl" say?

Hi Anno,

Thanks for the reply,

the output to the statement "which perl" is as follows

/usr/local/bin/perl



interstingly enough, i have just reopened my SSH connection to perform
this command, and ran perl -v just to check and it appears the version
is now 5.8.8. However, this was DEFINATLEY not the case after i had run
make install, any ideas what could have caused that?

Thanks

Ben

What reply? I wrote seven or ten replies since yesterday -- which one
are you referring to? Please supply attributions and some context with
your reply.

Okay, that's not the standard location, though it's a close runner-up.

That's a question about your system, not about Perl. Since you have told
us little about your system I can only guess. Perhaps you have a csh-like
shell that needs a "rehash" to honor changes in the actual environment.
Who knows.

I'll investigate the issue regarding the version change of perl showing
5.8.6 even after the upgrade, your comments are much appreciated.

Answers much like i have come to expect from the open source community.

Big chance that /usr/bin/perl is a hardlink to /usr/local/bin/perl.

See "which -a perl" too.
