Perl modules magic trick
|Reported by:||martyj19||Owned by:|
Today I upgraded the Compress:: modules family, which comes in a half dozen parts, from 2.008 to 2.009. I had a world of hurt because the later parts insisted that I only had 2.008 installed and, while I suspected cruft lying around, I couldn't find it. After a good amount of digging, I discovered
which recommends using "make install UNINST=1" to ensure that old versions of things are cleaned up.
This might be worth noting to save others time given that people will sometimes use the book instructions outside of a fresh start.
