I updated to Mountain Lion 4 days ago and then realised that my perl scripts did not work any longer. So I installed ActivePerl 5.14 (newest version) because I thought that perl has been deleted. After installing ActivePerl though my programmes still did not work:
Warning message: running command 'perl calc.pl' had status 2 Can't locate Excel/Writer/XLSX.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /Library/Perl/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.12 /Network/Library/Perl/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.12 /Library/Perl/Updates/5.12.4 /System/Library/Perl/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.12 /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/darwin-thread-multi- 2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12 .) at test.pl line 3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at calc.pl line 3.
In the terminal when I type perl -v it shows that it uses the newly installed ActivePerl. I used sudo clan -> install Excel::Writer::XLSX to install the missing module. However, it does not install it for 5.12 but for ActivePerl 5.14.
The own Mac OS X Perl seams to be installed here:
bash-3.2$ ls /Library/Perl/ 5.10 5.12 Updates bash-3.2$ ls /System/Library/Perl/ 5.10 5.12 Extras lib bash-3.2$
There is also a version here:
bash-3.2$ ls /opt/local/lib/perl5/ 5.12.4 site_perl vendor_perl
I thought best is to delete the ActivePerl by running its uninstaller. I did that and also removed the 5.12.4 as well as the site_perl directory in /opt/local/lib/perl5.
Then I wanted to reinstall the XLSX::Writer module using cpan. I thought that it is then installed into the old perl directory. However running cpan now results in the following error:
bash-3.2$ sudo cpan Can't locate strict.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.4/darwin-multi-2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.4 /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.4/darwin-multi-2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.4 /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.12.4/darwin-multi- 2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/5.12.4 /opt/local/lib/perl5/site_perl /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3/darwin-multi-2level /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.3 /opt/local/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at /opt/local/bin/cpan line 5. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /opt/local/bin/cpan line 5.
I don't know what to do now. I think the best I can do is probably reinstalling Mac OS X's own Perl, how to do that?
