Yes, my perl is 5.8.8:
$ perl -v This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi [...snip...]
The test script segfaults as per your example. However:
$ perl -MSafe -e 'print $Safe::VERSION, "\n"' 2.14
I now have two Safe.pm's:

2.14 is in /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8/Safe.pm
2.15 is in /usr/lib/perl/5.8.8/Safe.pm

@INC is:
$ perl -MData::Dumper -e 'print Dumper(\@INC);' $VAR1 = [ '/etc/perl', '/usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.8', '/usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8', '/usr/lib/perl5', '/usr/share/perl5', '/usr/lib/perl/5.8', '/usr/share/perl/5.8', '/usr/local/lib/site_perl', '.' ];
I'm not sure why there is a discrepancy (no difference in Makefile.PL between the two versions), although I installed 2.14 via the CPAN shell, and 2.15 via bash.

When I upgrade the test script to 'use lib qw(/usr/lib/perl)' before 'use Safe', it does not segfault and emits:
$ perl test.pl 3.0.17

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
