You must have heard this before: don't use the system Perl on Mac; it's for the system.
Yeah, but it goes in one eye and out the other until I actually have a Mac. Here's output from the above scripts:
I was fine with perl being 5.30, and the truth of the matter is that I do not know the perl command to update itself. I'm left to surmise that it's implementation-dependent. hippo polled the question: why don't you have the latest perl, and my answer was that I have to change architecture to change perl. I get the system up to snuff by getting the perl up to snuff first, so that I can understand where the hell am I on a new box, real or virtual. It is clear that a lot of OS X's architecture looks like this rather than being contained places typical for linux.Install Perlbrew from http://perlbrew.pl and install your own Perl that you can mess with to your heart's desire.
I'm trying another thesis here, namely homebrew, and I see a possible conflict with layering perlbrew. I'm hoping that I have it on "set and forget."Also, bash works fine on Mac. Do chsh -s /bin/bash to change.
I was ready to make this change back. Things have gotten better for me as a whole system since I bit the bullet and got a trackpad. So I'm not jones'ing for a right-click anymore. I've even done my first iMovie. Yes, part of the reason I want to be able to do all of this is to be able to make a TikTok video. Phones are too small for me, and I wanted to match architecture for the phone, where I have again rejoined the apple-verse to flee google and android. (Out of the frying pan, into the fire....)
I don't think I've got the install right until I can get cpanm, though, and I seem to be stuck:
What's the deal? Is cpanm a bad idea for Macs, or am I missing something obvious to the more-experienced?
