in reply to Alternative to Carp::ret_backtrace?

Carp will definitely work with Perl 5.6. You don't have to install it, but whoever is threatening to take away your customer's Linux support really needs to wise up - most Perl scripts will need some kind of module installed at some time or another and it's pretty childish to make blanket policies like that.

But this shouldn't be a problem because Carp is included in the core Perl distribution. So just use Carp; and you should be fine.

Are you sure it was a book? Are you sure it wasn't.....nothing?

    Sorry, I thought it was clear:

    The problem is that Carp is a core-only module, so we cannot update Carp to v1.01 without updating the whole Perl installation...

    Installing modules is not a problem, or to be more exact, is just the problem of the poor guy who has to make rpms from the CPAN tgzs ;-))


    Search, Ask, Know
      Ah, OK. The problem still isn't insurmountable. Just get the Carp distribution off CPAN. Then copy Carp.pm into the same directory as your script, make a Carp directory (also in the same directory as your script), and then copy Carp/Heavy.pm into the Carp folder.

      That's simply not true -- read perlmodinstall
