The OP clearly said he was using perlbrew, so it would be silly to assume you were addressing the OP with your question. That your question was a top level comment could easily be put down to a clicking oops.

    i am having issue since ElCapitan and now on Sierra to install youtube-viewer with System Perl (5.18.2)´subversion 2

    this problem occurs always when doing "sudo ./Build installdeps" Building H/HA/HAYASHI/Term-ReadLine-Gnu-1.35.tar.gz Found `/usr/lib/libtermcap.dylib'. cc -arch x86_64 -arch i386 -g -pipe -fno-common -DPERL_DARWIN -fno-st +rict-aliasing -fstack-protector -DHAVE_STRING_H rlver.c -o rlver -a +rch x86_64 -arch i386 -fstack-protector -lreadline -ltermcap xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/Comman +dLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/us +r/bin/xcrun !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! +!!

    also when i resort to perlbrew, i am having issues; no problems of this sort on Mavericks, or Yosemite.

      G'day kapqa,

      Welcome to the Monastery.

      You're a bit late to the party (by about six months). I started this thread back in January. I was asking about any Perl issues prior to upgrading. As reported, the upgrade was successful; and continues to be.

      I suspect you may have posted in the wrong place: maybe after searching for "Perl Sierra issues" or something like that. This looks like it should probably have been a new question; posted in "Seekers of Perl Wisdom".

      What you've posted is very difficult to read. Before posting again, please see "How do I post a question effectively?" and follow its guidelines; in particular, please ensure all code, data and program output is posted within <code>...</code> tags. Also see "How do I change/delete my post?": you can fix the problems with your current post.

      I gave up trying to read your entire post; however, this (very near the start) stood out:

      "... install ... with System Perl ..."

      As a general rule, avoid using the system Perl: it's provided by the OS for the OS. When you install modules you run the risk of breaking some part of the OS; when you upgrade the OS, there's a good chance the current Perl version will be removed, a new version installed, and all the modules you installed lost. Instead, use Perlbrew: I've been using this for many years and can recommend it.

      — Ken
