in reply to Mac OSX Question

i have 10.3.9 macosx with perl v5.8.1-RC3
and those modules are not in the default installiation
of perl, and while you upgraded macosx itself, you got
new version of perl, without modules you had installed
before upgrade, i usualy have the same problem after
upgrading perl on my freebsd box, i just reinstall
modules via ports or cpan shell, you should do the same.
using cpan shell, i gues is the best way for you.

you can read about installing perl modules there

    I tried the reinstall but it didn't work???

    In the meantime I'm using Applescripts to do the same thing and invoking the unix shell from the AppleScripts to do things that are clumsy in AS.

    Note, with regard to the recursive copy module, I have modified it to use MacOSX copy to insure that the meta data AND the files are copied. The recursive copy module only copies the file info.

    Thanks for the comments.
      Try going in and manually deleting the files in the old tree. Then rerun the install. Perl might still be seeing the old version.

      5.6 and 5.8 are not binary compatible, so you're likely to run into this with other modules as well. You'll have to manually delete those modules to install the new ones successfully.
